'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 episode...you'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; http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RRFQpg0yYNk (yeah I know the songs came later...)
