From TalkLeft came a link to this disturbing New York Times article about the treatment of detainees at Guantánamo Bay. Nestled on page 2 was this paragraph:

Military officials who participated in the practices said in October that prisoners had been tormented by being chained to a low chair for hours with bright flashing lights in their eyes and audio tapes played loudly next to their ears, including songs by Lil' Kim and Rage Against the Machine and rap performances by Eminem. [emphasis mine]

Now, Rage Against the Machine's music is very loud and upbeat. But their lyrics are not exactly the most ringing endorsement of the American goverment.

Other types of aural torture included that annoying jingle from Meow Mix commercials.
