If this didn't feature two members of Anthrax I'd really really hate myself for enjoying that.

Great video! Refreshing, at the very least. I love the cameo from Brian Posehn at the end.

I've heard about this a while ago, and kinda dreaded the idea of such a group. But I guess you can't judge a book by it's cover lol. Pretty good.

Oh well, this is pretty much as great idea as Slayer doing a track with NSync...

I'm sure Metallica will be doing a song with the Backstreet Boys soon. Probably an Xmas one. In stores. Soon (probably)

The video is great, loved it. As for the song, I kind of expected it to be a little heavier but it was ok, pretty catchy

Just for this, Kick Anthrax out of the big 4, we gave them a chance back from there rap days, but now, playing with Fall Out Boy. I'd much rather see Exodus or Testament or Overkill get a slot rather then this worthless thrash act now. I can't believe Anthrax....

Slayer- The angry band
metallica- the epic band
Megadeth- the musicians band
Anthrax- the silly band

Anthrax is part of the big four for a reason. they stand out. Exodus, kreator, sodom, destruction, etc, etc all pretty much fit into "angry" thrash band. Dont get me wrong, I love kreator personally more than any of those thrash bands in the big four, but they still sit in slayers shadow as to how theyve influenced the genre. Exodus does too.

If you dont enjoy a little bit of a lighter side in your thrash, its gonna be kinda hard to like anthrax. Its why they were able to do the rap thing. It's why Stormtroopers of death was so great. Its why this project has potential. Fallout boy has a talent for writing catchy pop-punk. Anthrax has a talent for writing catchy punk-thrash. and the singer from Every time I die gets to more clean singing than he does in his punk band, so everybody wins.

Personally, I think the song is meh, along with the other two I heard, but that's super groups for ya, the parts dont neccesarily add up to the sum. (waits for prerequisite joke about "Supergroup, yeah right, nothin super about it" to be placed somewhere in the posts below)

excuse the rant. I just saw anthrax open up for megadeth and slayer a few months ago and they unexpectantly rocked tits, so I'm a lil defensive.

Scott Ian is now in his second supergroup that uses the word “damn” in their moniker and a parody of American currency for the artwork. And I’m supposed to be excited about The Damned Things because why?

The song is garbage. The video is funny. Brendon Small directed it. He created Metalocalypse. Anything he directed would be funny.

^alot of people would argue that "Home movies" wasnt that funny. Then again, i myself would have to argue with those argumentizers. I think the show is quite funny indeed.

I just think that if the guys in this group would actually try and merge their respective sounds instead of all meeting in the middle, this might not be too bad. Scott ians trying to soften into hard rock, the fallout boy guy(who is by the way a huge metalhead) is trying to do heavier stuff when hes been playing pop punk his whole career, and the Every time I die vocalist is trying to sound less harsh than he does with his own project in order to fit with all the soft hard rock and differentiate from his own band. Cut the crap and belt everything out people. I wanna see catchy thrash with somebody yelling the f*** out over it. Not this meh-fest.

anthrax has ALWAYS sucked....

now listen up, THIS is why they're in the stupid fvcking B4:

they are from the east coast....ALL of the other good thrash was from CA---to have a new york band in the mix just made good business sense....it made thrash American

but the inarguable fact of the matter is thus: the rightful place in the imaginary marketing fantasy that is the 'Big Four' belongs to TESTAMENT

to insist otherwise is ignorant and shows poor taste

i'm glad you've understood ;)

and anthrax's first few albums were awsome.
but then the 90's happened and all thrash bands went down hill.

hhhmmm Lucy.....interesting

TESTAMENT has better guitars, better vocals, better songwriting, and since Bombardo and subsequently Bostaph have played for them, MUCH better drums

but i DO agree with the 90's statement, for sure....ah, doncha sometimes miss the old days?
