Backmasking - Fact Or Hype?

Today's in depth investigative report will be about the Satanic plot to hide messages in rock and/or roll music.

This is not a new plot by any means. Clearly, Satan invented rock and roll music in an attempt to destroy America. Luckily, various Christian groups like The 700 Club noticed this plot in time to alert everyone. Like the FBI. The FBI spent who knows how much investigating The Kingsmen smash hit "Louie, Louie". And we still have no idea what the words to that song are. This is what makes it such a classic drunken party song. All you have to do to "sing along" is make random noises to the beat of the music. There is no need to remember any complicated words, because there are no words. This is the final result of the FBI investigation.

But what about real Satanic messages in music? I decided to find out! I report, you decide. I stole that line from an asshole who shall remain nameless.

My investigation starts with classic rock music. Lets start with bands that start with the letter A. So without any further delay, AC/DC!

Here is a clip from "Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap" played forward.
And this is the same clip played backwards.

So, did you hear the "satanic" message? Well neither did I. But people think it is there! They swear they can hear it plain as day. What do they hear? Apparently, they hear "Yea I'm the nazi. Ohhh and I love it. Who the F are you?" WOW! I guess now that someone told me what to hear I kind of hear some of that. Sort of.

And I have more goodness from AC/DC! Here is a clip from "Back In Black" played forward, and then backwards. Someone with a great imagination thinks the backwards clip says "I love Satan, alright. And Satan knows I love Him. Love Him. Love Him!" They must have better hearing than me, because I do not hear anything except gibberish.

There is also supposed to be all sorts of hidden Satanic crap in Led Zeppelin songs. And there are supposed to be Satanic drawings and symbols on Led Zeppelin album covers. I have some backwards clips, but I can not hear anything there. Even when I am reading the supposed words while listening to it.

Do your kids watch that horrible Pokemon TV show? Then you probably know this song. But should one play it backwards this is what you hear. Clearly, the evil menace that is Pokemon needs to be stopped!

But what about sweet innocent Britney Spears! She would never place any backwards messages in her songs now would she? Lets fine out! Here is a clip played forward. And here is the same thing played backwards. Did I hear "sleep with me, I'm not too young"?? Who knows. I think that mesaage was placed there simply to sell more records.

But not all these backwards messages are bad. Some are just plain common sense. Like these clips from Queen's "Another One Bites The Dust". Here is clip 1 and clip 2 played forward, with clip 1 and clip 2 played backwards. Did you catch that? Clip 1 sounds like "it's fun to smoke marijuana" and clip 2 sounds like "It's all for fun... smoke it... get stoned". OK THEN! Like we did not know this before.

And then there are the bands who decided to just have fun with all this crap. They decided that since staff from The 700 Club was busy looking for Satanic messages in music, they might as well throw them a bone. Here is Fred Schneider from the B-52s telling us what happened to his pet parakeet, along with some tips to make your LP last longer. This is the clip played forward.

The J.Giles Band points out that "It doesn't take a genius to know the difference between chicken shit and chicken salad" in this clip, and here is the clip forward.

And then there is the king of intentional backwards messages - Frank Zappa. His song "Hot Poop" contains lyrics that were removed from another song by record censorship people. Here is another wacky example, from what sounds like Moon Unit. This is the clip played forward. Notice that it sounds like gibberish. But we would expect no less from Frank Zappa. He was the man.

Not to be left out, They Might Be Giants recorded a song called "Subliminal". I wonder if this song has any messages in it? Yup. Put there intentionaly. Here is the clip forwards, and backwards.

Another jokester who got in on the gag was Weird Al. In this clip he reveals what Satan's favorite snack food is. This is the clip as you hear it on the album normally. Can you hear it? Clearly, Satan eats Cheez Wizz. Who would have thought that? But then again, cheese in a can is some evil stuff. It will plug you up like nobody's business. You will never poop again if you eat too much of that stuff.

There are other examples too. There are a few from Pink Floyd. In "Several Species Of Small Furry Animals Gathered Together In A Cave And Grooving With A Pict" contains the message "That was pretty avant-garde, wasn't it?". And in one of the songs from The Wall (Empty Spaces) is the message "Congratulations. You've just discovered the secret message. Please send your answer to Old Pink, care of the funny farm, Chalfont."

But what I have to say about all this was already said by Weird Al. Here is the cip, from the song "I Remember Larry" - of course played backwards. And what is that message?

"Wow, you must have an awful lot of free time on your hands"

Well said Al. Or is it Mr. Weird?

Special thanks to for the clips and stuff for this post!

By the way, has anyone ever tried to play recordinds of Pat Robertson backwards? I wonder what good stuff would come from that little experiment?

Your Frank Zappa and B52 clips are the same. Which is which? I'm betting the clip is the B52 one.

Great post! I love it! Guess you were inspired by my magnificent post, huh? What, ouy tnod eveileb ni neddih segassem?

LOL. Great post kid. Loved it. I was born in 1941, so I was not yet old enough to go to see the movie "Rock Around the Clock," when it came out around 1955 or so. You had to be 16 to get into see it. Can you BELIEVE that?

"Louie Louie" came out in 1957 when I was 16. We loved any song that grown-ups thought was dirty. But seriously, it's great to party to.

I fixed the links. Try not to stare into the subliminal for as long as you can.
