In my high school days I was a major Anthrax fan. Their songs were pretty hard core thrash and many of them were inspired by great books, comics and movies. Anthrax's Among The Living is, in my opinion, their best work. There are many good tracks, but my favorite has to be A Skeleton In The Closet. It was this song that led me to explore Stephen King as it was based on his short story Apt Pupil from Different Seasons. I remember reading this crazy story about an all American kid who becomes infatuated with Nazis and discovers one in his home town. I was amazed by King's storytelling and started reading anything of his I could get my hands on. By the time I graduated high school I had read just about everything King had published at that time. Anthrax has a few songs that were inspired by King's works and each one introduced me to a great story.
