I like giving “Sunday Metal” a theme, and so this theme is “Songs of My Youth”. I found heavy metal as a teenager and it’s always been a big part of my life. I wanted to highlight some songs that stand out from those youthful days.
Without question, Bryan introducing me to Anthrax was a pivotal moment. It was the first “hard(er)” band, my intro to thrash. But of course, it wasn’t a thrash song, it was a rap song — “I’m the Man”
It provided the right transition for me. The humor opened the door, and I started exploring other Anthrax songs and albums. I liked what I heard, and my love of thrash was born.
