A song a day: Anthrax - Fueled
Out of the big 4, Anthrax were always the most fun (Metallica have lightened up a little but I can't imagine Slayer releasing I'm the Man - covering Minor Threat was as probably as close as they got to a joke). Even though my favourite album of there's is probably their most serious (Persistence of Time), I always had a soft spot for their much maligned John Bush years. In particular, I love this song because it's just so stupidly rocking and doesn't really make much sense but once that riff starts, I immediately turn the volume up. It's almost as if this song is genetically engineered for dumb rock fans to rock out to and that ain't no bad thing.
