The Torture Playlist

Music has been used in American military prisons and on bases to induce sleep deprivation, "prolong capture shock," disorient detainees during interrogations—and also drown out screams. Based on a leaked interrogation log, news reports, and the accounts of soldiers and detainees, here are some of the songs that guards and interrogators chose.

The government using Rage Against the Machine to torture prisoners is just so fucked up and incongruous I can't even think of something funny to say about it.

ok... some of these "songs" are really disturbing... but some are sweet & fun

--for instance, love American Pie & Raspberry Beret
-- and if someone was trying to torture me w/ the Meow Mix commercial, all I would do is laugh my ass off

I don't suppose you could put this behind an lj-cut tag, could you? It starts playing every time I hit my friends page. Thanks!
