Here’s a deceptively unusual cover: thrash-metal legends covering New Wave king Joe Jackson’s speedy “Got the Time.” Anthrax does a damn good job on this one. I remember loving this 20+ years ago and then forgetting about it. Thank you Sirius Ozzy’s Boneyard for reminding me.
Lest anyone get me wrong, I love my children very much. However, one of the side effects of becoming a father of young children is that your knowledge of what’s hip and happening becomes null and void, either because you don’t have the time or are too tired to care. Which is why I never heard this awesome song from 2002 (the year my oldest was born), a song that would have likely been in my Top 5 for that year (or any year, for that matter). Better late than never I always say and thanks to Sirius’s Underground Garage, I have been able to play catch up on a lot of great stuff I’ve missed.
