Metallica’s Lars Ulrich Reveals His Favorite Songs By Anthrax
In honor of the hugely anticipated Big Four concert at Yankee Stadium in New York City on September 14, Revolver and Guitar World are celebrating the Big Four Weeks leading up to the show. Our websites will be giving fans eye-popping exclusives, previously unseen backstage video, excerpts from our interviews with the bands—including those in Revolver’s special issue devoted to the Big Four, which you can buy right here—and much, much more. Additionally, Revolver’s September/October issue (available here) features collectible trading cards, which you can view here.
While making the Big Four issue, we talked to some of the Big Four’s most heralded musicians about their favorite songs from the other bands. Today, Metallica drummer Lars Ulrich tells us about his favorite Anthrax songs.
“There’s so many. I don’t know, the cover they did of ‘Antisocial’ [off 1988’s State of Euphoria] by [French rock band] Trust is obviously great. ‘Got the Time,’ [off 1990’s Persistence of Time] which is a cover originally by [English new-wave artist] Joe Jackson was awesome. ‘Only,’ which they did on the first record with [vocalist] John Bush [1993’s Sound of White Noise] was great. There’s tons of them, so I don’t even know where to start. Fuck. I was up in the mountains the other day, skiing somewhere, and Public Enemy came and played, so I went down and saw them. They played ‘Bring the Noise,’ [which Public Enemy rerecorded with Anthrax in 1991] which was cool to hear.”
