List of Songs the CIA Used to Torture Muslim Prisoners

Just imagine for a second that you are alone in a small dark room while your head chained between your legs and you has been forced to listen same song again and again for numberof hours and days with headphones which you can’t take off. Music torture has been normal practice for the CIA after it started its “improved examination program” in the early 2000s.

The U.S. Psychological Operations team member Sgt. Mark Hadsell, said:

“If you play it 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.”

Any torment technique is of easy to refute merit — music torment was, partially, mainstream on the grounds that it appeared to be more tasteful to the general population. Anyhow to find out about the knowledge of individuals who’ve been subjected to these tunes is to see exactly how frightful it is to have a darling tune betrayed you.

Following are the list of songs which CIA used to torture their prisoners:

“The Real Slim Shady” by Eminem



“Take Your Best Shot” by Dope

  1. Who ever wrote this artical did not proof read or take the time to make corrections. The result discredits not only the artical, but also the topic it is on. It discredits the website and the people that use it as BS posts.

  2. Id add few of tracks like; Vital Remains – Dechristianize, Urgehal – Satanic Black Metal In Hell, Craft – Fuck the Universe, Legion Of the Damned – Bleed For Me… 🙂

  3. Regardless of whether it’s real or fake, how have we become so desensitized to the practice of torture enough to add our own personal favorite tracks to this list? Yes, they’re prisoners and yes the act of torture has been common since practically the beginning of time but that doesn’t mean it’s something to take lightly, whatever form it may be in.

    • Don’t have a like, +, or other quick nod of approval…I was close to making a clever comment about a song or two when I had noticed the very same thing.

    • Someone must bring their war to them. They bomb a church, we bomb ten. They hijack a plane, we take out an airport. They execute Americans, we tactically nuke an entire city. We should make terrorism so horrific that it becomes unthinkable to attack Americans. This would be total, epic war…

  4. This piece is poorly and unprofessionally written! Sadly, “hqanon” has no business wasting this space on the internet. If there is a next time for this inarticulate writer, please see to it that he makes a point with some credibility.

    • Maybe english is their second language.
      Like myself.
      I have ADHD.
      Often, there is no time or no one to proofread- is it not better to HAVE the article, that some backlog never seen?
      I adore pedants, as they teach me much that I have mixed before medication, as well as providing info I cannot recall.
      But seriously, offer your own perhaps quite excellent skills. Beautiful construction of sentences is a thing of beauty, and often a joy for a very long time ( oh classics, I adore Thee!)
      We need rules for writing ( see David Foster Wallace’s excellent article on such ) or it falls to chaos.
      But also – we need people to fufill roles that lie empty. Everywhere.

      • No one to proofread it? Anonymous has thousands if not millions of members. I’m pretty sure some are articulate and can proofread it. Or, the writer could simply copy and paste it into a seperate window that has spell check (ex. Microsoft Word).

        No excuses for a badly written article. If you don’t have the time to do either of those, why should I use my time to read it?

  5. I believe this, of course they’d put fuck your god on while torturing Muslim prisoners because the government probably told them too.

  6. Fake or not, it is a bit humorous and fantastically evil… Barney… And mostly crap tunes. That is definitely torture. This made me giggle.

  7. I wanted to make fun of some of the song choices…but I realized that was because I could not reference how horrible the torture was. Without a clear record of exact rights violations, no one should fear a government doing anything physical to them…much less, if ever, simply for possibly, maybe having information. How can we(I’m from the U.S.) say we are born with rights and then deny other people those rights for convenience sake…people, governments, allies, and enemies do not soon forget how easily and hypocritically you dehumanized others. I’d hate to imagine a world where my only allies remained as such for economic or strategic reasons. When someone stands with me, I’d like it to be out of mutual and sustainable respect and trust in my actions and world view.

    • Skinny Puppy was also used ( lets just say that the prisoners got a excellent earful of real education at the same time. )
      I listened to SP for ten years nonstop ( no other CDs ), although not at ear bleeding decibels. It did me a world of good, and also, brain change. Cannot describe, but a hell of a trip. I knew very little beforehand. After, I knew what and where and why, of many things not found pre-internet. Rather.
      SP also sued the Govermint agenz for royalties. Well done!

    • That’s the song my kids used to torture me with when I wouldn’t give them their way. It worked. But seriously I can’t see that the playlist for torture was the important part, right?

  8. Wow! Everyone is commenting more track suggestions, or how amusing they find this! Disregarding all the breach of human rights and the level of disrespect to one’s beliefs.

    • Remember 9/11…people jumping rather than burn to death. Then turn up the volume to 11 and shock their nuts with a car battery.

      • Torture is torture. It is always wrong. Very few, if any, of the people tortured had anything to do with the terrorist attacks of 2001. And if you think that we should just punish “them” because they are Arab, Muslim, Iraqi or… whatever… then that is collective punishment. And that is prejudicial.

  9. Thanks for caring about Muslims, most of the jokes in comments that because they never tested the real situation, so they are thinking it’s funny.
    but let’s see when that will happen to them.. I am sure they will hate the moment when they will start listen to the “intro” of any songs here.

  10. The only thing which can bound our world together is music –
    but they use it to hurt and distruct people. .
    horrible. .
    music is the only real good thing in this world!
    no one should use it to made things like tortures – I could turn out totally or cry when I read such articles!

    America : why did you try to kill everything what’s good in this world? :,(
    Isn’t it enough to hurt and kill people? Isn’t it enough to torture them with any other things?
    Did you really need to take the only thing ,what can heal these souls which are destroyed by your mistakes, to destroy them completely?

    Fuck you CIA!

  11. Well, there is one thing I have to admit… They have a great taste of music… I expexted something like Nyan Cat, Look at my horse, Epic sax guy etc…

  12. I was thinking yea, yea, yea, Now hold on a second *no-one* deserves to hear the Barney song, that just going too far. ;P

    Add in Sweet ‘Caroline’ (currently cant get that out of me head), and ‘Hay, hey were the monkees’ hehe

  13. Imagine, if you will, all the people beheaded by the brothers-in-arms of all these “torture” survivors. Imagine, if you would but take the time, the thousands of people these same “survivors” have tortured (notice there are no quotations)by using the real and barbaric forms of torture practiced throughout the world by, shall we say, less than completely civilized nations throughout the world. Imagine, if you will but get your head out of your ass for one moment, that we are fighting a war against a group of people who do NOT subscribe to the Geneva convention and really don’t give flip about your rights (much less Human Rights).

    Now tell me , Sunshine, how would you fight this war? How would you try to save the lives of your fellow countrymen? You think the same people that will massacre their own people because they refuse to convert to the prescribed religion or join their terrorist ranks will respond in a positive manner to please and thank you?

    WAKE UP you liberal idiots!!

  14. im not a muslim but its bullshit how people say muslims are terrorist or torture them wtf is that shit they are humans too so why doesnt everybody quit their fucking thougths about each other and we will live in peace!

  15. Not one of you understands what it is to be an American, much less a human being. Espousing torturing a bunch of brown-skinned human beings brainwashed by religion. Those men are victims, and you are all blaming the victim. My United States of America does not torture. Thank God for President Obama putting a stop to torture on his third day in office, which I’m certain was about three days too late for him. Shame on every one of you.

  16. و يتغنون بالديموقراطية وحقوق الانسان
    لكن هيهات هيهات موعدنا يوم الحساب
    عند رب العباد

  17. Someone should contact the corporations that hold the song rights to each of these songs and make them pay for the repeated use to broadcast this for the purpose of torture … Im sure there should be a whole lot of royalties needing paid for use an broadcast to the prisoner’s and an ethical point of view that im sure the producers an song writers would not allow the use of there songs for torture purposes …… Wake Up people an spread this around …..

  18. Music does distort a humans mind, over-time you would develop psychological disorders, schizophrenia, stress, anxiety, musical hallucinations. At least one of them, depends on your mind and how you use it.

  19. I totally believe this, its like a mental torture device. I could see why someone could go insane from 24/7 music such as the ones listed. Including the Barney song I actually cringed at that because I could only imagine some normal person going completely insane and or mentally fucked since he/she was forced to listen to it 24hrs a day. And imagine… the songs like a minute long…

    • Conditions matter, you sleep in your bed, they don’t actually get to sleep much so even a simple sound can be very painful to them, less to say an ‘utter crap song’ 🙂

  20. The strangest torture I’ve ever seen, I want to give the CIA a hint about how to torture people, use Justin Bieber or Nicki Minaj.

  21. Marilyn Manson and Deicide ? you’ve got to be kidding me…seriously the C.I.A should organize a huge metal festival or something if they use quality music like that :)))

  22. Am I the only one here who knows why these songs are selected? In case you’re wondering, it’s the reverse and subconscious of the song that’s important. And these songs have a specific subconscious that would have been appropriate for the situation. So they would work to the will of the “CIA”. I don’t know if this is a true story or not, but THIS is the reason why that would happen.

  23. We know a song that will get on your nerves, get on your nerves, get on your nerves. We know a song that will get on your nerves, get on your nerves, get on your nerves

  24. What no Beatles, John Lennon or Nickleback on the list? Having to watch the videos would be worse then hearing the music alone. I like the meow mix song.

  25. Im a Muslim. If they catch me and play these songs ill be dancing the whole night singing them. Coz these are my favorite songs 😀
