Weaponized Music

A Canadian industrial rock band called Skinny Puppy has sent an invoice for $660,000 to the U. S. Department of Defense. The band says its music has been played at the Guantanamo Bay Detention Center during the interrogation of detainees, and it is now demanding compensation. The band disapproves of its music being used for “torture.”

Here we have a example of foreigners doing a job that should have been filled by Americans. Why couldn’t Op-Critical’s music have been used?

  1. You’ve never heard of Skinny Puppy? What are you, 1000 years old? But, seriously. Next you’ll say you have never heard of Nirvana or Nine Inch Nails.

    Sometimes an understanding of pop culture is required to comment on pop culture intelligently.
