Rockers’ music used on GTMO detainees; group wants pay from Uncle Sam

[Ed. – Bonus music video!]

Rock band Skinny Puppy has demanded the US government pay for their songs allegedly used to TORTURE detainees at Guantanamo Bay.

The Canadian band were unhappy after learning through a “reliable grapevine” suspected terrorists were being stunned or tortured with their music.

Founder Evin Key told The Phoenix New Times: “We heard our music was used on at least four occasions.”

The revelation inspired the concept of the band’s latest album, which has been called Weapons.

Despite being at the forefront of the industrial rock scene, a genre of angst-ridden metal, Skin Puppy are disgusted by their music’s use at ‘Gitmo’.

Key told reporters in the US he felt “not too good” about it.

The 52 year-old added: “We never supported those types of scenarios…..because we make unsettling music, we can see it being used in a weird way.

“But it doesn’t sit right with us.

“So we thought it would be a good idea to make an invoice to the US government for musical services.”
