It made a big splash when the Military advised when torturing prisoners during interrogations, they played Metallica's music to soften them up. There was a report going around that the band was upset with their music being used. Not true.
The band has officially made a statement about their music being used and it seems they don't care either way.
Here is the official statement:
"There has been a lot of talk recently about us asking the military not to use our music to "soften people up before interrogation". We NEVER commented to the military either way on this matter. Any statements that have been made otherwise are not correct."
So Metallica isn't tripping on their music being used. End of story. All along we thought they were using Barry Manilow's music instead.-DocFB
