Music Torture

Think Progress reports that Reprieve, a British human rights group, claims that the US has been using music to psychologically torture detainees by blasting it and depriving them of sleep. Here are some of the most frequently played songs.
– “Dirrty,” Christina Aguilera

– “F*ck Your God,” Deicide

– “Shoot to Thrill,” AC/DC

– “We are The Champions,” Queen

– “I Love You,” from “Barney and Friends”

– “Born in the USA,” Bruce Springsteen

– “Babylon,” David Gray

– “White America,” Eminem

– “Sesame Street” theme song

I'm afraid that the Barney song is torture even when played at a low volume.
