Listen to Billy Joel’s classic tune “New York State of Mind” and it’s sure to evoke very different responses from fellow New Yorkers as to what constitutes theirs. Mine came a few nights ago in the form of two of my favorite entertainers: one of the greatest actors of our time and one of the pioneers of thrash metal.

The one and only Robert DeNiro, a New Yorker, shared a photo with fellow NYers Anthrax. I have to say I completely nerded out at the awesomeness of seeing two of my favorites sharing a pic together.


Having Robert DeNiro appear on your talk show is coup enough,…

But to have Anthrax follow it up on the same show by kicking ass with this tune off of their excellent new album was even better.
