** Guantanamo Bay, which uses rock and Barney songs as part of their "enhanced interrogation techniques".

** During the US military's invasion of Panama to oust Manuel Noriega, psychological warfare specialists blasted rock music at the building he was holed up in, which ran counter to Noriega's personal taste for opera. One of the songs played was Music/TheClash's "Should I Stay Or Should I Go?", the irony being the band ''opposed'' U.S. military interventions in Central America. Noriega eventually surrendered.

Another, Music/VanHalen's "Panama", seems oddly adequate. Noriega eventually surrendered.
