News “The Torture Playlist”
posted by February 26 at 13:25 PMon
From Mother Jones:
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.
Among the torture tunes: the Barney theme song, the Meow Mix TV jingle, Eminem’s “Kim,” Metallica’s “Enter Sandman,” Christina Aguilera’s “Dirty,” Prince’s “Raspberry Beret,” and “Babylon” by David Gray.
