Metallica Asked Government Not To Use Their Music For Torture
The Navy Seal who killed Osama Bin Laden has revealed that Metallica made a special request to the U.S. government that their music not be used during interrogations of alleged terrorists.
The anonymous Seal shared the details in his recent profile with Esquire:
"When we first started the war in Iraq, we were using Metallica music to soften people up before we interrogated them . . . Metallica got wind of this and they said, 'Hey, please don't use our music because we don't want to promote violence.' I thought, 'Dude, you have an album called Kill 'Em All," he explained.
The metal community was quick to fill the Seal's need however:
"Then a band called Demon Hunter got in touch and said, 'We're all about promoting what you do.' They sent us CDs and patches. I wore my Demon Hunter patch on every mission. I wore it when I blasted bin Laden," he added.
