Ted Nugent & Muzak

"The brainchild of World War I veteran General George Owen Squier, the Muzak company has been guilty of sucking the lifeblood from countless melodies since its founding in 1922. It once even considered adopting the slogan 'boring work is made less boring by boring music.'

"Muzak's existence so irked Ted Nugent that in 1989 the guitarist offered to buy the company for $10 million just so he could destroy its tapes."

[During the 1960s, the U.S. Navy experimented with playing Muzak on Polaris submarines to help ease sailors' frazzled nerves.]
