Industrial Metal Band Skinny Puppy Bills Pentagon for Guantanamo Music - Washington Wire - WSJ

Industrial Metal Band Skinny Puppy Bills Pentagon for Guantanamo Music - Washington Wire - WSJ | Kill The Record Industry | Scoop.it

Canadian industrial metal band Skinny Puppy’s music is aggressive, abrasive and in-your-face. But the group’s founder doesn’t think it should be used as a weapon of war.

Skinny Puppy’s  cEvin Key says he has sent the Pentagon a bill for $660,000 after being told that guards at Guantanamo Bay had used the band’s music to torment prisoners.

“To some people it could be a terrible nightmare, but to others it’s just a creative, artistic endeavor that sort of plays with dark writings,” he told Canada’s CTV News on Wednesday.

Pierre Priot's insight:

Smart move.
