SongsusedbytheMilitarytoTortureampIntimidate Photo One component of warfare is psychological warfare or 'Psy Ops'.
These are various methods used to disorient, demoralize, and intimidate the enemy into submission.
Using loudspeakers to broadcast propaganda or music has been used even before World War One.
One classic cinematic example of psy ops is from the movie 'Apocalypse Now'
As the American helicopters fly in from the west to attack the Vietnamese, they play Wagner's "Ride of the Valkyries' to scare the enemy.
It has recently come to light that while detained in Guantanamo Bay Cuba, Iraq and Afghanistan prisoners were subjected to musical torture to get them to disclose information. The choice of music was chosen by whatever staff member was on duty, but the following songs contained in this quiz have been used at one time or another.
Can you pick the songs?

They should have hit 'em with the wishy washy soft rock bands. Then there would have been screaming and gnashing of teeth!
