Southwest Airlines have grounded 80 of their jets after problems with their in flight tannoy caused grunge rock band Hole's album " Ask For It" to be played on a continuous loop for the duration of all flights.

The 1995 album is widely regarded by music pundits as their worst album by far (and in fact only reached number 172 in the Billboard chart) and travellers exposed to the unscheduled soundtrack variously described the experience as "mind numbingly boring", "more excruciating than root canal treatment" and "bad enough to put you off music for life".

The airline released the following statement:

"We apologise most wholeheartedly for this unfortunate incident.

"We at Southwest Airlines have always prided ourselves on providing a first class customer experience to all our customers.

"Regrettably this was definitely not the case on these occasions.

"At this very moment our customer service team is attempting to contact all those who have been affected with a view to funding any counselling or psychiatric treatment requirements".
