For those of you who live in a box, loud music is piped into a cell to prevent the bad guy from sleeping and generally bug the shit out of them. This might be used in combination with other ways of making them uncomfortable.
I just wanted to say that I think it is awesome that Metallica's James Hetfield has said he thinks its awesome that his music is used. Maybe he didn't say it was awesome, but he did not mind.
Metallica frontman James Hetfield recently told German-language TV network 3sat that part of him was proud the U.S. military chose the band’s music to torture prisoners at U.S. detention centers in Cuba’s Guantanamo Bay. “It’s strong; it’s music that’s powerful,” Hetfield says. “It represents something that they don’t like—maybe freedom, aggression… I don’t know… Freedom of speech. And then part of me is kind of bummed about it that people worry about us being attached to some political statement because of that. We’ve got nothing to do with this and we’re trying to be as apolitical as possible, ’cause I think politics and music, at least for us, don’t mix.”
Chalk up another point for why I love Metallica.
By the way is anyone suprised that the biggest bands complaining are:
Rage Againt the Machine
REM - Tell me you wouldn't have told everything if you had to listen to "shiny happy people holding hands" over and over again?
LOL, I would be ironic if U2's music was used.
