Anthrax 2008

A biological weapon past it's efficacy - one Bush + a gold medal + East River - one kidney = ?

Got the answer? Red Bull maybe does:

On Thursday, February 5th, 17 of the world's best snowboarders will compete for their piece of the massive $100,000 prize purse at Red Bull Snowscrapers. Athletes will compete against the majestic backdrop of the New York City skyline in the East River Park from 6-9 pm. The local thrash heavy metal band Anthrax is set to perform.

Athletes include iconic Olympic Gold Medalist Shaun White, freestyle / backcountry legend Travis Rice and ultra-progressive phenomenon Pat Moore. World renowned Burton riders for the ground-breaking event include Kevin Pearce, Mikkel Bang, Danny Davis, Kohei Kubo, Kazuhiro Kakubo, and snowboard legend Terje Haakonsen. Other confirmed riders include Nitro's Andreas Wiig, DC's Torstein Horgmo, Forum's Jake Blauvelt and Greg Bretz, along with Rome rider Bjorn Leines and Ride's JJ Thomas.

Gnarly. What's more, we also have word that Anthrax will be joined by Valient Thorr & Black Gold. THEN, just two days later, the snow festivities continue with Winter Jam NYC 2009. More details on both days below...

"They should have hung it up after Fistful of Metal."

Your mother should have hung it up after your older sibling was born.

Almost everything Anthrax did in the '80s was great. State of Euphoria was iffy. The John Bush albums are also great.

Anthrax rules
12:45 is a giant cornhole though.

I like Sound of White Noise. The album with the 8 ball on it is really hard to listen to.

Who's the new singer? What is John Bush doing?

I hear that they like to be different, not cliche. Good for them.

The "Sound of White Noise" is my favorite Alice in Chains album.

I loved Anthrax's guest appearance on "Married... with Children" (in the episode, "My Dinner with Anthrax").
