I hereby sentence you to...death by Manilow

One Colorado town is quieter after a judge got serious about punishing noise ordinance violaters: He started sentencing them to a hard hour in a room with Barry Manilow, Barney the Dinosaur or other music of HIS choice. The judge explains:

"These people should have to listen to some music that they don't like...particularly Barry Manilow. It think that's -- it's hard on the kids."

This CNN video is great. Old people seem glad for the crackdown, but teen garage bands like the Revolving Reverends (yes, they're absolutely every bit as bad as you imagine) vow to "still rock."
