A new documentary called “Songs of War” says the U.S. military tortured prisoners in Guantanamo Bay by repeating the same songs at 100 decibels for up to two hours. And U.S. policy ALLOWS the military to do it for up to two hours . . . although the documentary claims they did it for much longer than that. But whether you think it’s torture or not, some of the songs they used would drive ANYONE crazy.
#1.) The theme song from “Sesame Street”. One of the show’s music composers said he was, quote, “horrified and fascinated” to find out they used his song.
#2.) “Baby One More Time” by Britney Spears.
#3.) “White America” by Eminem.
#4.) “Killing in the Name” by Rage Against the Machine: Their guitarist, Tom Morello, said he’d rather they used it to torture George W. Bush instead.
#5.) “Don’t Gimme No Lip” by Pearl Jam.
#6.) “Somewhat Damaged” by Nine Inch Nails.
#7.) “Enter Sandman” by Metallica. (–So apparently we tortured ourselves through most of high school . . . and at every pro sports arena.)
#8.) “Bodies” by Drowning Pool.
#9.) “Shoot to Thrill” by AC/DC.
#10.) “Hells Bells” by AC/DC.
#11.) “I Love You” by Barney the purple dinosaur . . . the theme song for “Barney & Friends”.
#12.) “Born in the USA” by Bruce Springsteen.
#13.) “Babylon” by David Gray.
