METALLICA's LARS ULRICH Slams Military's Use of Their Music
METALLICA drummer Lars Ulrich is furious at the news that the military is using their songs to "break down" Iraqi captives in Baghdad, according to the World Entertainment News Network.
Interrogators are using the band's tracks, including "Enter Sandman", in the hope of extracting information about weapons of mass destruction — something which angers Ulrich.
He says, "I feel horrible about this. No one in Iraq has ever done anything to hurt me and I don't understand why we have to be implicated in that bullshit.
"What about firing up some VENOM or some of those Norwegian death metal bands? The problem with that is then it wouldn't be a soundbite. Sometimes METALLICA become the token heavy metal band that you can talk about.
"Someone asked me yesterday what I was going to do about it. What am I supposed to do about it — get George Bush on the phone and tell him to get his generals to play some VENOM?"
