Skinny Puppy Bills Pentagon for Playing Their Music At Guantanamo Bay
Posted Wednesday, February 5th 2014 @ 2pm

Skinny Puppy, a Canadian industrial rock band, found out that their music was being used by the US military at Guantanamo Bay to interrogate detainees.

The band did not like that for two reasons.  Keyboardist Cevin Key explains, "I am not only against the fact they're using our music to inflict damage on somebody else but they are doing it without anybody's permission."

Skinny Puppy is seeking $666,000 from the Pentagon.

Key tells CTV, "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."

Metallica's music has also been used in Guantanamo.  Lars Ulrich addressed that issue with MSNBC's Rachel Maddow.  Ulrich said, "I can name, you know, 30 Norwegian death metal bands that would make Metallica sound like Simon and Garfunkel."
