In a previous entry we mentioned that Metallica’s entry to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame we questioned whether this could be the catalyst to induct Slayer as the second member of the “Big Four of Thrash Metal”. We still think they have the best shot of the remaining four, but if they look towards innovation than Anthrax may be the one they turn to.
As much as the other bands in the “Big Four”; Anthrax helped usher in the new genre of Thrash Metal. Where they differed form their peers was that Anthrax was far more experimental and they appeared to take themselves a little less seriously both in terms of looks and lyrics. Anthrax receives a lot of credit for fusing Rap and Metal, something that was not common of at the time. The biggest obstacle for induction for Anthrax is whether the Hall feels that but inducting Metallica they have served their debt to the “Big Four”.
Should Anthrax be in the Hall of Fame?
Definitely put them in! - 69.8%
Maybe, but others deserve it first. - 12.7%
Probably not, but it wouldn't be the end of the world. - 11.1%
