Singing: Wah! Wah! Wah!

They say imitation is the best form of flattery.

Rock stars are okay with American kids try to impersonate them and their music on games such as Guitar Hero and other games (as long as the royalty checks keep coming in).

But some of them are upset with the US Government putting their music to good use--against inmates at Gitmo.

One man's symphony is another man's interrogation session.

From Comrade Karla:

This is just amusing. I mean, some of this goes beyond civilized norms.

(Citing Associated Press)

Based on documents that already have been made public and interviews with former detainees, the archive says the playlist featured cuts from AC/DC, Britney Spears, the Bee Gees, Marilyn Manson and many other groups. The Meow mix cat food jingle, the Barney theme song and an assortment of Sesame Street tunes also were pumped into detainee cells."

I actually have to agree with this in part: Millions of American parents were tortured when their children tuned in to Barney.
