During the 2001 anthrax attacks in the United States, rumors of the band changing their name started to surface.

Guitarist Scott Ian's wife, Pearl Aday, is the daughter of singer/actor Meat Loaf.
In 1992, Anthrax were guests in season 6, episode 18 of the sitcom "Married... With Children". They lip-synched to "In My World" from 'Persistence of Time'.

It is well known that the band has a fascination for sport clothing, particularly bermudas. Scott Ian got married with a t-shirt, bermudas and trainers in a religious wedding (at least there was a priest officiant).
