Anthrax merge rap with metal on 1987 EP I’m The Man

Anthrax revisit their merger of rap and metal on their 1987 EP, “I’m The Man”, in the latest installment in the band’s 40th anniversary video series.

Considered one of the first rap-metal songs, the title track – which features samples of tracks by Metallica, The Beastie Boys and Run-DMC, among others – was issued as the set’s lead single.

Episode 10 in the Anthrax 40 series features insight into the project from band members, DMC, and fellow rockers Rob Zombie and Corey Taylor.

Anthrax’s second EP arrived on the heels of their third album, “Among The Living”`; the record delivered the highest US chart position when it reached No. 53 on the Billboard 200, while also going on to become their first million-seller in the region.

Anthrax will celebrate their 40th anniversary with a very special livestream performance on Friday, July 16 that will see the band deliver a deep cuts set that will pull from their entire career-spanning catalog.
