Weird news of the week is that the Canadian Industrial rock group Skinny Puppy has sent an invoice to the US Department of Defense, following news that their music was used as a form of torture at Guantanamo Bay. According to a report on CTV, the band first planned to create an album cover based on an invoice for the U.S. government, rather than sending an actual invoice. But after learning that the government had allegedly used their music without permission, the band was told it could bring a suit against the Department of Defense.
“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,” Cevin Key told CTV’s Kevin Newman Live. The members were “offended” to learn that their music was played in the notorious prison to “inflict damage” on detainees.
“I wouldn’t want to be subjected to any overly loud music for six to 12 hours at a time without a break,” he said.
