Whitesnake song soothes rather than tortures


A Guantanamo Bay terror detainee found the annoying old Whitesnake hit song “Here I Go” again gave him strength when it was intended to torment him into compliance.

Whose side are you on, David Coverdale?

…he says singing the lyrics to Whitesnake’s Here I Go Again – which US authorities used as part of a noise torture tactic which involved playing loud music and white noise – helped him focus on the day he would finally be free.

Psst… for future reference, the correct answer is either Skinny Puppy or Bananarama. Five minutes of that crap and they’ll tell you everything you want to hear.

Read the whole story on the BBC, or just the part that Classic Rock Magazine thought was important here.
