Anthrax are currently making the rounds down under and one of their recent stops on Australia’s Soundwave Festival came in Perth, which also just happens to be the hometown of late AC/DC frontman Bon Scott.

Blabbermouth reports the band came prepared to mark the occasion as they added in their cover of AC/DC’s ‘T.N.T’ into the performance (which can be viewed below). Anthrax recently premiered the song via Loudwire, leading off the promotion of their new ‘Anthems’ covers EP.

Drummer Charlie Benante told us about the recording, “Back in the day, when we would do encores we would play AC/DC’s ‘Whole Lotta Rosie.’ We never recorded it back then, but when we were in the studio making ‘Worship Music,’ we decided we wanted to. But [singer] Joey [Belladonna] really wanted to do ‘T.N.T.’ He felt it was more in his style, and he knew the song backwards and forwards, so we recorded that, and it’s great.”

Anthrax has also previewed Thin Lizzy‘s ‘Jailbreak,’ Rush‘s ‘Anthem‘ and Cheap Trick‘s ‘Big Eyes‘ over the last few weeks. The ‘Anthems’ EP is currently available for pre-order here ahead of its March 19 release.
