Eh. I'll give you Slayer and Megadeth, but I don't think Anthrax are quite big enough to solidify a slot on this list. When playing on their own, they play clubs. At least they did a few years ago when they actually did their own tour(s), which I wish they'd do again.
Also, Motorhead certainly deserve a mention. Don't like them, but credit where credit's due.
