A.I.R.

Album: Spreading The Disease (1985)
  • "A.I.R." is the opening track on the second Anthrax album, Spreading The Disease. It stands for "Adolescence in Red," a play on "Rhapsody in Blue." The song is about youthful rebellion, a common theme in metal music. (Thanks to Anthrax drummer Charlie Benante for the explanation.)
