4Mohamed el-Qasabgi - Zikrayati (My Memories)

Another form of torture is to use their religion against them. It's against Islam law to listen to Arabic music. To make matters worst, they would play the music on Ramadan.

3Christina Aguilera - Dirrty

Why was a song like Dirrty by Christina Aguilera used as torture? It's not heavy, it's not loud. It's a form of humiliation; the track is sung by a woman and is sexual. It's against their practice and beliefs.

2Dope - Take Your Best Shot

After hearing this song on repeat for a few hours, prisoners could no longer hear the lyrics anymore, just the loud beat. Some of them lost their minds rendering their intel useless.

1Eminem - The Real Slim Shady

Sure, they probably learned all the lyrics to the song but this was a serious torture. Binyam Mohamed had to endure this song for 20 straight days. It was so bad that he would hear captives in other cells smashing their heads against the wall. Pretty brutal.
