Band May Sue Government for Using Music as Torture Device
Experimental electro-industrial Canadian band Skinny Puppy has sent the US Department of Defense a bill for $666,000 (an interesting choice of number) for allegedly using their music in Guantanamo Bay without permission.
The band at first planned to design an album cover based on an invoice for the U.S. government, rather than sending a physical invoice. But after learning that the government had allegedly used their music without permission, Key says 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,”
