Las Vegas-based hard rockers Five Finger Death Punch have been a favorite among the U.S. troops for years, and last week, the guys launched a special crowd-funding campaign to help veterans’ support groups with the goal of reaching $50,000. Well, the fans responded, and the band has raised more than $169,000.
