Reports came out that the CIA used the music of the Red Hot Chili Peppers for torture in 2012:

According to Al Jazeera ... the report says Abu Zubaydah was shackled by his wrists to the ceiling of a secret prison site and forced to listen to one of their songs on a loop -- among other torture methods. No word on which song.

Drummer Chad Smith is not happy at all about that news, and who can really blame him?

Can you help us out?
