Industrial Band Skinny Puppy Sues Pentagon for Using Its Music as “Torture” at Guantanamo

Writing at Radio.com, Scott Sterling reports that long-running
industrial thrashers Skinny Puppy have filed suit against the
Pentagon over the use of the band’s music against detainees at
Guantanamo Bay.

:

It was revealed today (Feb. 6) that the band, which paved
the way for acts like Marilyn Manson and Nine Inch
Nails, has sent a bill in the devilish amount of $666,000 to
the Pentagon after learning that its music is being used as a form
of torture during interrogations at Guantanamo Bay.

“We sent them an invoice for our musical services considering
they had gone ahead and used our music without our knowledge and
used it as an actual weapon against somebody,” Cevin Key, one of
the band’s founding members, explained in an interview with CTV
News.

“I wouldn’t want to be subjected to any overly loud music for
six to 12 hours at a time without a break,” he continued, adding
that the band members were “offended” that their music was being
used to “inflict damage.”

No word yet on whether Barney the Dinosaur is planning a
similar
lawsuit
