? Got The Time maybe a "hit" but it's a hit no one gives a shit about.
I agree that there are a lot better songs than GTT they can do. But to think that Discharge is something they would even comtemplate putting in the set is just way out there. It's not something they've ever done live and if they have it was very little. There are a lot better tunes off POT they can pick and that's where my issue with them always doing GTT comes in to play. BOTB is one of their best known songs and still hasn't appeared in any of the sets since Joey got back as far as I know and that's a real head scratcher for me.

Yeah that's the consensus for the dedicated Anthrax fans on GTT. It does work well live and is a fun little rocker in the set. But there are many more songs not only off that album but from the rest of the Belladonna era that are way better that they completely ignore live.
There's just no way GTT rocks better than ATL, AIR, IMW, KIITF or BOTB live. Also, how the fuck is ATL not been a standard in their most recent sets?
