And Now, for a Different Playlist

According Mother Jones, the following—known as The Torture Playlist—is a group of songs routinely played at US "military prisons and on bases to induce sleep deprivation, 'prolong capture shock,' disorient detainees during interrogations—and also drown out screams."
While a few are obvious choices—Deicide, Metallica, Neil Diamond, Barney, the Meow Mix ad—we don't really understand the inclusion of most of the other songs. Different strokes and all that, right? Hmm...
