Anthrax – Got The Time

Persistence of Time

Song: Got The Time
Cover Artist: Anthrax
Album (Year): Persistence of Time (1990)
Original Artist: Joe Jackson


My wife is by no means a fan of Thrash Metal, but Anthrax’s version of this Joe Jackson tune has to be on her iPod, and she likes it even better than the original, which is pretty rockin’ in its own right.

‘Got the Time’ originally appeared on Joe Jackson’s 1979 debut album ‘Look Sharp!’ Anthrax covered the song for their fifth studio album ‘Persistence of Time’ and their breakneck pace to the song guarantees that it will drive itself securely into your brain. One listen and ‘Got the Time’ will be Tick Tick Ticking in your head too.
