If you are a Red Hot Chili Peppers fan this one hurts. Last week, news emerged that the CIA used their music to torture a prisoner at Guantanamo Bay back in 2002.
The song used was ‘Give It Away’ and luckily I have never heard it. I also don’t know any of Red Hot Chili Pepper songs which could be good for my health. So are there songs really that bad that it’s considered torture just to listen to them? “Please! Please! Not the Red Hot Chili Peppers! Give me the Chinese Water Torture instead! Anything but the Chili Peppers!”
As expected, the members of RHCP were upset and angry. Hard to say if they were mad that their music was thought so bad that it could be a means of torture or that it was used to inflict pain and fear. Either way, they weren’t happy about it.
Go read it for yourself.
