Metallica Tells Navy SEALS: Stop Using Our Music

The Navy SEAL who killed Osama bin Laden has opened up to Esquire magazine about the raid on the Al Qaeda leader’s compound and the shots that took his life, as well as the personal aftermath for the SEAL and his family. The SEAL, who is only referred to as “the Shooter” in the article, also mentions that he used the music of Metallica on prisoners before interrogations — until the band asked them to stop.

The Shooter explained, “When we first started the war in Iraq, we were using Metallica music to soften people up before we interrogated them. 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.’”

He added, “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.”
