Hardcore Band Power Trip Aren't Happy That Their Song 'Executioner's Tax (Swing of the Axe)' Got Played On Fox News
Texas hardcore thrashers Power Trip released the album Nightmare Logic earlier this year. And on his show The Five on Wednesday (Dec. 6), Greg Gutfeld, Fox News’ resident music head, played their thrash tune "Executioner's Tax (Swing of the Axe)" from it and name-dropped the band. The band were not so happy about it. See below via Pitchfork.
