Anthrax: This Is the Most UNDERRATED Song We Ever Wrote

Songfacts recently asked Anthrax drum champ Charlie Benante to name most underrated track in the band's catalog. He replied:

anthrax underrated

“This last album that we put out [2016’s ‘For All Kings’], we had a song called ‘Breathing Lightning.’

“It’s probably the most radio-friendly song we ever had, but because of that ‘heavy metal stigma’ that is always attached to us, we don’t get a fair shake in radio.

“It definitely was eligible for that type of thing, because when that song was being added to radio, I saw all the other songs that were on the charts and I thought to myself, ‘Well, this one has more accessibility than a lot of these songs.’

“The reason why these bands that are on the charts with songs is only because they’ve had radio prior to that. So, I just think that this whole way the music business is run and structured – especially nowadays – is just completely wrong.”
