Rockers Anthrax have announced they would consider changing their name in the wake of the current threat of bio-terrorism if enough people die. Until now, the band had refused to ponder the possibility. Previously, frontman John Bush had explained that Anthrax was merely the band's name and therefore, he didn't see the point in changing it. In light of the recent anthrax scares in the U.S., however, the singer now admits that such circumstances could force the band to change their name. "I guess if, like, there was a large quantity of human beings that died in connection with this, you know?" says Bush, explaining what could prompt a name change for the band. The band begins their rescheduled tour with Judas Priest in January 2002.
