Songs from the children’s television show “Sesame Street” are being used at Guantanamo Bay to torture suspected terrorists.  

The Daily Mail reports that terrorists held in the Cuban prison were subjected to days of the show’s educational music at deafening levels.

According to the Christian Post, a former prisoner cited the music as “some of the worst torture that they faced.”

Christopher Cerf, the composer of the music, was disgusted by the use of his product. Cerf could not believe “the horror of music being perverted to serve evil purposes.”

The “Sesame Street” tunes are latest to be added to the Guantanamo Bay soundtrack, joining the likes of Britney Spears, AC-DC, Metallica, Eminem, Pearl Jam and Nine Inch Nails.

“Born in the USA” by Bruce Springsteen and Barney’s “I Love You” have also been played to torment inmates.
