Anthrax - Spreading The Disease: Wikipedia Album Entry
Spreading the Disease is the second studio album by American thrash metal band Anthrax and the first with vocalist Joey Belladonna and bassist Frank Bello. The album was released in October 1985 by Megaforce Worldwide/Island in the United States and in March 1986 by Island Records globally.
The band produced the album with Carl Canedy, Jon Zazula serving as executive producer. The album includes the single "Madhouse".
A music video was produced for "Madhouse" as well, but didn't receive much airplay because it was banned by MTV, who believed the content to be degrading to the mentally ill.
This was the last Anthrax album to feature songwriting from fired vocalist Neil Turbin, who is given songwriting credit on the songs "Armed and Dangerous" and "Gung-Ho". Songwriting credit was shared to the track "Medusa", the first and only songwriting contribution from former producer Jon Zazula. Originally he was credited as the sole writer of the song, but reissues credited the rest of the band to it as well.

Young and free, something youâll never be
A childhoodâs end, itâs lunacy
Pure dictation, they donât listen
And youâre just waiting for what youâre missing, oh
The day will come, you cannot run
White hot clouds fill the sky
See the red flare, blasting hot air
There's no place left to hide
Striking down the enemy
Fighting hand to hand
Troops are thrusting onwards
Time to take command
There's two kinds of people in the world
The outlaws and the lawmen that prevail
The bounty hunter's job is on the wrong side of the law
Intentions of the truth and nothing more
White coats to bind me out of control
I live alone inside my mind
World of confusion, air filled with noise
Who says that my life's such a crime?
Endless curse, blood runs cold
Evil stares will turn
Your flesh to stone
A plan of the race gone mad
A final solution to pass
