iTunes Review

Among all the big thrash groups, Anthrax had the best sense of humor and the most diverse taste in music, qualities evinced on Attack of the Killer B’s. Consisting of outtakes, B-sides, and live tracks recorded between 1989 and 1991, the compilation ended up being one of Anthrax’s most popular releases—mostly due to the runaway success of “Bring the Noise,” their collaboration with Public Enemy. Aerosmith and Run-DMC may have melded rock and rap for the pop market, but this remake was more crucial because it showed that ferocity—not playfulness—was the true unifying force between the hip-hop and metal cultures. For Anthrax, music went hand in hand with rabble-rousing. In spite of an often close-minded metal fanbase, they openly embraced hip-hop (“I’m the Man ’91”), often returned to their punk roots (“Chromatic Death,” “Milk

Well...Still Good!

Well...as the title says, still good, but this would be towards the bottom of the list of Anthrax albums. The only songs that are really hits are "Bring the Noise," and "N.F.B. (Dallabnikufesin)." Well, there is "Keep it in the Family," but I like the regular version much better than the live version. Not their best, But I guess still OK. If there was a 3 1/2 star, I'd rate it that, but a *** makes it look like I hate it, so I went with a ****.

Random but good.

I love how lovably crazy and (Seemingly) humble these guys are. They're like a living cartoon/anime. This shows off their animated personalities with pride, and I for one enjoy it. My favorites are "Startin' Up a Posse" even if it swears a lot-- that's the point, obviously-- "Parasite", "Protest and Survive", and "N.F.B" for it's sarcasm and dry humor. (The fact that it was written in about two minutes makes it even more amusing.) If you grow tired of the animated-ness, there's always the live versions of the songs from their most serious album with Belladonna, "Persistance of Time". If you have an open mind and can take the random humor and tons of swearing (I bet you can. *Eyeroll*), get it. If you're the cautious customer, listen to the clips and decide which of the ones I recommended you like best, and get those. The end. Sayonara.

Killa Bs y'all

For a "B side" Album this has to be (no pun intended) near the top of the list. Lots of great stuff here. Sure not the typical Anthrax style, but that's the point of b-sides all. Milk, Bring the Noise, Startin Up a Posse (hell ya, take that noise PRMC), I'm the Man '91 and NFB are by far my faves on this. Belly of the Beast is the only Live tune I enjoy, but still this album is money.

Biography

Formed: June, 1981 in New York, NY

Genre: Metal

Years Active: '80s, '90s, '00s, '10s

Nearly as much as Metallica or Megadeth, Anthrax were responsible for the emergence of speed and thrash metal. Combining the speed and fury of hardcore punk with the prominent guitars and vocals of heavy metal, they helped create a new subgenre of heavy metal on their early albums. Original guitarists Scott Ian and Dan Spitz were a formidable pair, spitting out lightning-fast riffs and solos that never seemed masturbatory. Unlike Metallica or Megadeth, they had the good sense to temper their often...
