Thrash metallers Anthrax recorded this for their 2013 covers album, Anthems
. Explaining why they chose to record this Rush song, drummer and guitarist Charlie Benante
told us that he and vocalist Joey Belladonna were "on a Rush kick," and discussing which of their songs they'd like to record. "In the back of my mind, I didn't want to do a real '80s type song by Rush," said Benante, "because I guess it would be kind of obvious that you would probably pick something off of Moving Pictures or something. We didn't want to do that. So we went way back and we were talking about the first live album [All the World's a Stage
] and 'Anthem.' That was the one. Because I think the thing about 'Anthem' was it had elements of songs like off of our first album, and it appealed to us. We just went for it."
