'My Dinner with Anthrax'

Married...With Children is easily the most Glam television sitcom of all time. After all, the show debuted in 1987 - right as heavy metal was at its most mainstream, and therefore, famous.

If you've never seen a single episode of Married...with Children, I'm sorry. Seriously, go to YouTube right now and watch any episode. I spent a lot of time with the Bundy family during my youth. The show was on Fox on Sunday evenings and I always watched.

Kelly Bundy (played by Christina Applegate) is portrayed as a heavy metal hottie. She lives for the Glam and tons of the jokes center around Metal acts, both real and fictional.

In Season six, Anthrax joins in the fun. I stumbled across "My Dinner with Anthrax" last night thanks to YouTube. You can watch the entire clip here.

Basically, Kelly and her brother Bud win a party with Anthrax...and hilarity ensues. I definitely remember watching this episode way back in 1992.  I was sitting in my bedroom, watching my small T.V. because my parents didn't like Married...With Children. (Check out Kelly's top. I totally had a black dress around this time with the exact same sleeves. Also, be on the lookout for a long-sleeved Rip magazine magazine T-shirt. Seriously).

Here's just the Anthrax performance part.

If you click the link above and watch the whole show (and I hope you do) be sure to watch until the very end. Trust me.

If you enjoyed the Anthrax'll probably like "Rock and Roll Girl," too! The episode features Kelly as a "video babe" for The Guttercats.

This should have been the soundtrack to the show; (yeah I know the songs came later...)
