Musicians like Trent Reznor were horrified to learn that their music is being used to torture detainees at the prison at Guantanamo Bay. Everything from Reznor's "March of the Pigs" to Eminem's "The Real Slim Shady" to to Queen's "We Will Rock You" to Bob Singleton's "I Love You" (from Barney) is being used to try to convince prisoners to give up information by depriving them of sleep or by making them hate life, which is what the Barney theme does to most Americans. Only one group is proud to have their music used to torture: The lead singer of Drowning Pool, whose shitty song "Bodies" is a favorite of interrogators, called it "an honor." [MSNBC]
