Anthrax - Attack Of The Killer B's: Wikipedia Album Entry
Attack of the Killer B's is the name of a compilation album of B-sides, covers and rarities by the thrash metal band Anthrax. The album was released in June 1991 by Megaforce Worldwide/Island Entertainment.
The band produced the album alone, which includes the single, "Bring the Noise". Attack of the Killer B's was certified gold by the RIAA. The two live tracks of "Keep It In The Family" and "Belly Of The Beast" were recorded live in 1990 from the Persistence of Time tour. Also included one remix of "I'm the Man" and released 3-songs from the 1989 EP of the State of Euphoria sessions Penikufesin. Included on the album is the song "Startin' Up A Posse", which attacks the PMRC. It includes covers of songs by Discharge, Kiss, Trust, and the surf rock staple "Pipeline".
There were two versions of this album released, the uncensored version contained full expletives and the song "Startin' up a Posse". The censored version did not have that track and in place of the expletive words a buzzing noise is heard (buzzing like bees).
"Bring the Noise" was a collaboration with legendary rappers Public Enemy, technically making this song the first rap metal collaboration, although Joey Belladona and Dan Spitz had collaborated with UTFO in a song called Lethal in 1987 that was released as a single. Bring The Noise appears on the skateboard-game Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 2.
