Anthrax vs. Linkin Park – Cage Match
Trash-metal legends Anthrax defeated Staind yesterday, bringing their Cage Match record to 4-0. With one more victory, Anthrax’s ‘I’m Alive’ will be inducted into the Loudwire Cage Match Hall of Fame.
In what will be Anthrax’s final bout with ‘I’m Alive,’ the band will face their biggest challenge yet, squaring off with the gigantically popular Linkin Park. While it may seem like an odd pairing, both these songs put the metal to the pedal.
Linkin Park’s ‘Blackout’ has been remixed by one-time Nine Inch Nails member Danny ‘Renholdër’ Lohner for the brand-new ‘Underworld Awakening’ soundtrack. The experimental remix begins with a long electronic sequence, but never fear Linkin Park fans, the song goes into full-on assault mode at the one-minute mark.
Can Anthrax make it into the Cage Match Hall of Fame with their fifth straight victory? Or will Linkin Park start a winning streak of their own? Listen to both tracks and vote for your favorite song below.

Rules of Cage Match:
There are no rules … except this one: If a song remains the reigning champ for five straight cage matches, it is retired to the Loudwire Cage Match Hall of Fame. With so many great songs out there, we have to give other bands a chance!
