Sounds like the local commercial radio playlist (minus the moronic local ads?) - HOT/Zinc/SEA - all owned by the same mob. No wonder it would make you insane.

Sounds to me like the Gitmo guards wanted something to keep them amused whilst at the day job. Mind you, "The Star-Spangled Banner" over & over again would do your head in.
