Scott Ian On...Lady Gaga Going Metal?

LOS ANGELES, CA - MAY 02: Anthrax's Scott Ian performs at Club Nokia on May 2, 2013 in Los Angeles, California.
If Lorde can win the Moonman for “Best Rock Video,” why can’t Lady Gaga sing an Anthrax song?

Scott Ian recently sat down with EMP Rockinvasion where he talked about the pop star perhaps covering an Anthrax song or guesting on a future track.

“She’s into metal.  She’s a genuine metalhead…It doesn’t even have to be an Anthrax song!  Any [metal song]! I don’t care! I would like to hear her sing in a metal way,” said Ian in the video below around the five minute mark.

This, of course, isn’t the first time a notable metal figure praised Gaga.  Rob Halford said in an interview with the Huffington Post back in June that the two discussed working together in the future.

Considering how much pop music has saturated the mainstream, I wouldn’t mind some crossover collaborations like this, if it meant more people would pay attention to what’s going on in the rock world.
