Be All, End All

Album: State of Euphoria (1988)

Songfacts®:

  • This empowering, aggressive rocker plays on the phrase "be all, end all" which is something the band used to say quite often. In the song, it becomes "be all, and you'll be the end all."
  • The song opens and closes with a haunting (is there any other kind?) cello played by Carol Freedman. This was the brainchild of Anthrax drummer Charlie Benante.
