Stomp 442 is the seventh studio album by American thrash metal band Anthrax. It was released in 1995 by Elektra Records. The band and the Philadelphia-based producers Butcher Brothers produced the album, which includes the singles, "Fueled" and "Nothing". The album debuted at No. 47 on the Billboard 200 charts. Anthrax claimed that their label, Elektra Records, didn't do enough to promote the album, and they left soon after. Stomp 442 is the only Anthrax album not featuring the traditional Anthrax logo on its artwork.
AllMusic reviewer Stephen Thomas Erlewine gave the album a negative review, describing it as "a generic collection of speed metal bombast". He finished his review by saying that the record is a "disheartening experience." Reviewer Jimmy Neeson had a more positive view, noting, "A savage Anthrax album; and a worthy addition to any metal collection." Canadian journalist Martin Popoff described Stomp 442 as "a fine, responsible collection of working man's metal, if a bit of a repetition" compared to "the relatively unappreciated Sound of White Noise" of 1993.
The album's cover gained controversy when retailer Walmart refused to stock it in its stores.
In a 1996 interview with Tom Russell of Glasgow-based radio Clyde 1, Bruce Dickinson revealed that the original design for the cover art was done for his album Balls to Picasso – originally to be titled Laughing in the Hiding Bush – but he couldn't afford it. His album's title was changed and he drew two squares on a toilet wall for the cover.
