Heavy metal band Slayer has sparked controversy with a new song about 9/11 - from the terrorists' viewpoint. The California foursome were fed up with other band's American perspective of the attacks on New York and Washington DC in 2001, so wrote their own unique version. Guitarist/songwriter JEFF HANNEMAN has angered September 11th victims' families with the extremist angled track JIHAD, which will feature on their new album. Singer KERRY KING says, "In America every band under the sun has written their 9/11 song. "And that's why I didn't want to have any part of it, but this is really cool. It kind of has an 'Angel Of Death' feel because it doesn't condemn anyone or say that anyone's right or wrong."
