The Null Device

The triumph of Western culture

U.S. forces are using Metallica, Barney the Dinosaur to "break Saddam supporters". "Trust me, it works," says one U.S. operative.
The songs that are being played include "Bodies" from the Vin Diesel "XXX" movie soundtrack and Metallica's "Enter Sandman." "These people haven't heard heavy metal before," he explains. "They can't take it."

in the case of bodies (which isn't just from xxx, it's been used in like every second recent action film) it's not so much that they haven't heared metal before, it'd be more the fact that bodies is the worst song ever recorded in the entire history of music.
