ANTHRAX is Spreading Their Disease

ANTHRAX – Madhouse

In the late 80's Anthrax was already a house hold name for head bangers across our nation. These thrash giants have seen it all since, and still remain to be one of today's most notable thrash metal bands ever. However if it's one thing that can be said about early Anthrax no matter what line up you prefer, it's that the NYC quintet brought the fun that was clearly missing from your normal heavy acts of it's time.

Going back to 1985 this music video for "Madhouse" off their 2nd LP "Spreading the Disease" was actually banned from MTV completely, who believed the video to be degrading towards mentally ill patients. The LP itself features the then, new vocalist Joey Belladona who replaced original front man Neil Turbin, and new bassist Frank Bello, who took over for Danny Lilker (now of SOD/Brutal Truth fame).
