Anthrax and Beastie Boys Wanted To Team Up

(Rock News Desk) Anthrax planned to have the Beastie Boys appear in the 1987 spoof rap track I'm the Man, credited with kickstarting the rap-metal genre.

But the thrash outfit's drummer Charlie Benante reveals the two bands just couldn't find the time to get into a studio together. Benante tells Rolling Stone: "Originally the Beasties were going to do the rap on I'm the Man. But we had conflicting schedules and couldn't get it together, so we just ended doing it."

Four years later Anthrax covered Public Enemy's track Bring the Noise, featuring the rap act's Chuck D, and that release cemented the relationship between the two genres. more on this story
