From the AP wire:
FALLUJAH, Iraq – In Fallujah’s darkened, empty streets, U.S. troops blast AC/DC’s “Hell’s Bells” and other rock music full volume from a huge speaker, hoping to grate on the nerves of this Sunni Muslim city’s gunmen and give a laugh to Marines along the front line.
They also mix in a few insults in Arabic, such as “you shoot like a goatherder”.
Now this beings up an interesting question. What music would you play to drive an enemy (or cube mate) crazy? I’m thinking that AC/DC, albeit grating and annoying, isn’t quite enough to be truly cruel.
Some nice Britney Spears, perhaps. Or that class of music that one only hears at stoplights (and even then, just the bass). Come to think of it, just a large bank of subwoofers would probably have some respectable destructive potential.
Or maybe that classic album of William Shatner’s where he sings Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds. That’s sure to be a hit.
But then again, that’s probably against the Geneva convention…
