For Your Waterboarding Mix Tape

According to a British law group, here's a few of the songs used by the U.S. military to torture detainees in Guantanamo, Iraq, and Afghanistan.

"Enter Sandman," Metallica.

"Bodies," Drowning Pool.

"Shoot to Thrill," AC/DC.

"Hell's Bells," AC/DC.

"I Love You," from the "Barney and Friends" children's TV show.

"Born in the USA," Bruce Springsteen.

"Babylon," David Gray.

"White America," Eminem.

"Sesame Street," theme song from the children's TV show.

Other bands and artists whose music has been frequently played at U.S. detention sites: Aerosmith, Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera, Don McLean, Lil' Kim, Limp Bizkit, Meat Loaf, Rage Against the Machine, Red Hot Chili Peppers and Tupac Shakur.

Don McLean? Yeah, a couple hours of American Pie and I'd confess to just about anything.
