Whilst many take into account Anthrax‘s visitor flip at the early technology FOX sitcom Married With Youngsters, that is not the one time they have got seemed on a significant community sitcom. Additionally they served up some awkward laughs on NBC's ‘90s sitcom Newsradio.
Within the 1995 episode “Negotiation,” after one her co-workers will get a promotion, manufacturer/reporter Lisa Miller (Maura Tierney) makes an attempt to leverage the station by way of revealing she's were given an audition for MTV Information. However Lisa's on-off boyfriend and co-worker Dave Nelson (Dave Foley) laughs off her risk, feeling positive that she's no longer an ordinary viewer of the community.
That leads us to probably the most cringeworthy interviews, as Lisa is tasked with interviewing the individuals of Anthrax for the song video large (as they nonetheless had been in 1995). Scott Ian, Frank Bello and the band's vocalist on the time, John Bush, all participate within the visitor cameo, the place they box Lisa's an increasing number of fumbled questions.
She begins by way of asking Bush concerning the band's guitar paintings at the new album, no longer understanding he is the singer. When Ian chimes in that probably the most absolute best guitar paintings on their album (which might had been Stomp 442) got here from Dimebag Darrell, Lisa mistakenly identifies him as being from “Pandera.” She then proceeds to misidentify the band as grunge, then guesses punk and business best to be corrected once more by way of the gang.
Whilst the band thankfully did not want Lisa's interview at the display to promote albums, the Newsradio visitor flip used to be a pleasing plug for his or her 1995 liberate, Stomp 442, which yielded the songs “Fueled” and “Not anything.” And, as Ian said, Dimebag Darrell did have the same opinion on guitar for the songs “Kingsize” and “Driving Shotgun.” The album hit No. 47 at the Billboard 200 Album Chart.
Newsradio ran from 1995-1999 on NBC, starring Tierney, Foley, Stephen Root, Phil Hartmann, Andy Dick, Joe Rogan, Vicki Lewis and Khandi Alexander. Watch the Anthrax cameo beneath.
