Here's the story (compliments of tgdaily.com)
Anthrax on Mars
No this is not a report about a horrible diseases on Mars we could potentially bring back to Earth - that was pretty much the plot of The Andromeda Strain, except that disease came back from the moon.
This is about the band Anthrax, one of the "Big Four" along with Metallica, Slayer and Megadeth, and apparently their music is helping wake up Miss Curiosity on Mars.
As Blabbermouth.net and Business Insider report, Anthrax is the only metal band that's played up on Mars, and the song NASA picked was their cover of Joe Jackson's "Got the Time," which was on their 1990 album Persistence of Time. No comment from the band about their music being played up there yet, but I can't see why they wouldn't enjoy this news.
As any card carrying metal-head knows, Anthrax came along at about the same time Metallica and Slayer were making waves as a faster, harder, more aggressive form of metal that would eventually redefine metal as we knew it. Where most of the thrash scene was based in the Bay area, Anthrax were the best known thrashers out of New York, and as we reported last summer here at TG, they even fulfilled a lifelong dream of playing Yankee Stadium on the "Big Four" tour. (Anthrax guitarist Scott Ian has the Yankees logo on at least one of his guitars).
