Anthrax Moshes On Mars

“Got The Time” from Anthrax’s 1990 album Persistence of Time was on the morning playlist for Mars Rover, Curiosity, along with “Echelon” by 30 Seconds to Mars. Since Curiosity’s Mars landing, the playlist has also included The Beatles’ “Good Morning Good Morning,” the theme from “Star Wars,” and Wagner’s “The Ride of the Valkyries.”

As Anthrax’s Scott Ian was, er, over the moon about it and exclaimed, “Yes, there will be moshing on Mars.”

Anthrax begin a co-headline tour with Testament, with Death Angel supporting, on September 14.
