Torture Chamber

For those of you who missed the story - Im still LMFAO.

From SMH:
Torture chamber
May 20 2003

US interrogators in Baghdad are using a mix of heavy metal songs and the Sesame Street theme tune to break Iraqi captives.

American officials said subjecting prisoners to long sessions of the "culturally offensive" music encouraged them to talk.

"These people haven't heard heavy metal before," Sergeant Mark Hadsell told Newsweek magazine.

"They can't take it."

The interrogators' favourite tracks include Metallica's Enter Sandman and the Drowning Pool song Bodies, from the Vin Diesel action film XXX.

They also use children's music, such as the famous Can You Tell Me How To Get To Sesame Street theme, and a selection of songs from Barney, the jolly purple dinosaur.

The're using Metallica? Pfffft, whimps!

The SASR do the same thing during selection, they blast death metal out of the barrack's PA system all night long.


Oh and in a conversation with a friend last night, we decided that Monty Python's "I've got a lovely bunch of coconuts" is the best song to play when rolling a tank column into battle.

It was more the "can you tell me how to get to sesame st" and the emergence of the purple dinosaur that made my day.
