A IS FOR ANTHRAX: #4 in a series of pop culture primers

The latest Abecedarium comes from writer/heavy-metal fan Rebecca Rogers Maher

She notes: "This is by no means a representative sample of heavy metal bands. It's just an alphabetical list of bands I like, or hate, or could make a rhyme with." 

A is for ANTHRAX. They bring the noise. 

B's for BON JOVI: Rich Jersey Boys
