Ice-T's thrash metal band Body Count reunited Thursday night in New York and this awkward moment happened -- the "Law and Order: SVU" detective performing "Cop Killer."
The group recently started doing a few shows to promote the release of a new album ... and last night at the Gramercy Theatre they dusted off their most controversial song.
There was a ton of controversy surrounding the '92 release of "Cop Killer" ... Vice Prez Dan Quayle and President Bush blasted the song -- and police organizations across the country rallied against the band and its record label.
Ice-T eventually agreed to pull the song from the record and replaced it with a song called "Freedom of Speech."
