"No. Hell no!" bellows my audiophile friend Dee, "I graduated from high school before you were born!"

35 years ago, I was a freshman at an overcrowded high school. Through word of mouth, and the exchange of cassettes, we shared and learned about music. That's how I discovered Anthrax's Spreading The Disease. The siren raid "A.I.R.," Adolescence In Red (which was a joke about Rhapsody In Blue), was our favorite.

Instead of periods, we had a modular block schedule. Your lunch took place whenever you had free mods. But between classes, the hallways were jam-packed. By playing Anthrax's "Madhouse," turning the crowded hallways into a giant mosh pit was, obviously, more fun than anything we as audiophiles would ever do. "Madhouse" is not for you to sit dead still, eyes closed, in the sweet spot. If the stereo is any good, you are supposed to get up, and flail around. To which Dee protests, "No. Hell no! I can't swing these old and frail hips!"
