Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz Jr. is declaring Anthrax Day in the Bronx the same day the group take the stage for the Yankee Stadium Big 4 concert featuring Metallica, Megadeth, Slayer and Anthrax.

Here is what we received about the special declaration: The "Big 4" concert also represents a homecoming for Anthrax, which features three native Bronxites among their members--Charlie Benante, Frank Bello and Rob Caggiano. Both Benante and Bello grew up in Throggs Neck, while Caggiano is a native of Pelham Parkway. In honor of the band's return home, Borough President Diaz will officially declare September 14 as "Anthrax Day in the Bronx."

"The Bronx may be known as the home of hip-hop and salsa, but make no mistake, our musical contributions are much more expansive. These heavy metal legends grew up right here in our borough, and I am proud to welcome Anthrax back to their Bronx home," said Borough President Diaz.
