Basket Full of Puppies
What do Cholera, Anthrax, Bubonic Plague and Ebola all have in common apart from being potentially deadly diseases? They are all the names of bands. Ahh, deadly diseases, beloved of metal bands everywhere. Until they start killing people close to home of course. I remembered this funny article from the New York Times in 2001 during the anthrax attacks in the US. The media, desperate for something to write about, started contacting members of the band Anthrax for their opinion! The band eventually sent out a fake press release announcing that they were changing their name to Basket Full of Puppies.
