torture

“Time Life” presents: The Torture Classics collection. All the “make me talk hits” in one mind fucking compilation, remastered for that “detention-cell perfect sound.”

Ubermorgen and James Powderly have collected all reported torture-tracks from Abu Ghraib to Guantanamo Bay, from “Born in the USA” to Puddle of Mudd to the Meow Mix song. What happens when you blast three Eminem songs simultaneously and consequentially for 24 hours? A CIA-crafted mash-up that “makes torture pure magic.”

Just listen to these reviews of the interrogation technique, condemned by the United Nations and the European Court of Human Rights.

Sgt. Mark Hadsell:

If you play the same song for 24 hours, your brain and body functions start to slide, your train of thought slows down, and your will is broken. That’s when we come in and talk to them.

Guantanamo Prisoner Ruhal Ahmed:

… It makes you feel like you are going mad. You lose the plot. And it’s very scary to think that you might go crazy because of all the music, because of the loud noise, and because after a while you don’t hear the lyrics at all, all you hear is heavy banging.
