NAVY SEAL Shooter States Metallica Wouldn’t Let Them Use Their Music for Interrogation
The Navy SEAL who killed Osama bin Laden told his story to Esquire magazine. In an excerpt out of the article, the Shooter (Navy SEAL) spoke about the usage of Metallica music and it’s affects to “soften people” before interrogation.
“It was important to him to stress that no women or children were killed in that raid. He also insisted that when it came to interrogation, repetitive questioning and leveraging fear was as aggressive as he’d go. “When we first started the war in Iraq, we were using Metallica music to soften people up before we interrogated them,” the Navy SEAL said. “Metallica got wind of this and they said, ‘Hey, please don’t use our music because we don’t want to promote violence.’ I thought, Dude, you have an album called ‘Kill ‘Em All’.
“But we stopped using their music, and then a band called Demon Hunter got in touch and said, ‘We’re all about promoting what you do.’ They sent us CDs and patches. I wore my Demon Hunter patch on every mission. I wore it when I blasted bin Laden.”
