Other torture methods include sleep deprivation and shackling prisoners while dousing them in water.

I love me some RHCP, but if I had to listen to Anthony Kiedis yell “Give it away, give it away, give it away, give it away now,” throughout the day, I might lose my fucking mind. The Chili Peppers are not the only band whose music was used for torture. Guantanamo Bay prisoners were victim to the industrial rock of Skinny Puppy, a Canadian band. That news inspired the band’s next album Weapons. No news on an upcoming Chili Peppers album has been posted. Know more.
