It's a well-known fact that music torture has long been a common tactic employed by the CIA to aid in the interrogation process of detainees.
Songs such as The Real Slim Shady by Eminem, Dirrty by Christina Aguilera and even I Love You from the television show Barney have reportedly, on several occasions, been played on loop for days on end in the hope of slowing down a suspects train of thought and break their will power.
And it looks like the Canadian police have taken inspiration from their US neighbours as it's now warning that those caught drunk driving over Christmas will suffer one of the most torturous experiences known to man – the music of Canadian rock band, Nickelback.
According to the BBC, the Prince Edward Island's Kensington Police Service took to Facebook over the weekend to warn people thinking of pushing their luck and driving under the influence this festive season would result in police officers playing the office's unopened copy of Nickelback's album Silver Side Up on the journey to the police station.
The message read:
'When we catch you, and we will catch you, on top of a hefty fine, a criminal charge, and a years driving suspension, we will also provide you with a bonus gift of playing the office's copy of Nickelback in the cruiser on the way to jail.
Now, now, no need to thank us, we figure if you are foolish enough to get behind the wheel after drinking then a little Chad Kroeger and the boys is the perfect gift for you.
'So please, lets not ruin a perfectly good unopened copy of Nickelback.
You don't drink and drive and we won't make you listen to it.
While the punishment is slightly unorthodox, there's technically nothing wrong with playing the Noughties pop music to wrongdoers on the way to the station.
Personally, I think this is the perfect deterrent to make sure people find a designated driver on a night out.
No one wants their night ruined with a listen of 'Rockstar' or 'How Your Remind Me', do they?
