Anthrax are set to release their EP of covers called 'Anthems' on March 19th. The CD will have some of the greatest songs ever recorded from bands like AC/DC, Rush, Thin Lizzy and more. One song that I'm really amped up for, is the song 'Smokin'' from the classic rock band Boston.

I've been a huge fan of Boston for as long as I can remember. In fact, I've said it before, but the band deserves to be in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. So, hearing that Anthrax was going to cover the song 'Smokin'', I was really amped up about it - at first. Then, I started thinking this might not sound so good. Don't get me wrong, Anthrax is one of my favorite metal bands from back in the day, but, we're talking two completely different types of bands. Plus, I just couldn't see Anthrax doing the keyboard part in the song, which has a solo part in it.

Not only did they nail the keyboard part, but they did an amazing job on the entire song. In fact, it definitely makes me want to get the 'Anthems' EP just based on this cover. They did a killer job, but don't just take my word for it.
