Top Ten Most Famous Songs With Hidden Messages When Played BackwardFinch Many songs have pointed lyrics in them. Unfortunately, fewer and fewer these days actually tell a story worth hearing. Some songs, however, seem to have more of a story that you'd expect.
While it is rare to find a song with a message in it other than sex and fame, it is even more rare to find a song with two messages in it. But they seem to exist. Rumors of hidden messages in songs, only heard when played backward, have been around for decades. From The Beatles to Slayer, evidence, whether intentional or not, suggests that many bands have more of a story to tell than they advertise.
Below is a list of the most famous songs to allegedly have backward playing lyrics in them. The format is: Song Title - Artist and please put the backward lyrics in the comments.
The Top Ten
"Here's to my sweet Satan/The one whose little path would make me sad, whose power is Satan/He will give those with him 666/There was a little toolshed where he made us suffer, sad Satan." - Finch
Completely changed my feelings about the song. - Puga
Well luckily, the members of the band have vehemently disputed that any backmasking was intentional and they said they were appalled that someone would accuse them of such behavior. Take it for what it cost you though. - Finch
Yeah! The epitome of all songs with backwards messages.
When did they say that - simpsondude
It's the part that says' "If there's a bustle in your hedgerow, don't be alarmed now, it's just a spring clean for the May queen. Yes there are two paths you can go by, but in the long run there's still time to change the road you're on." You can find plenty of YouTube videos with the song played backward and the lyrics to accompany. - FinchV 2 Comments
"It's fun to smoke marijuana" four times - Finch
"Turn me on, dead man." - Finch
You'll probably get something more pleasant altogether if you mish-mash it like fruit in a blender. - PositronWildhawk
The Beatles are pretty much a crapshoot as far as conspiracy theories and hidden messages are concerned. I, for one, love the band and don't think they are guilty of anything more than some fun and propaganda but, I'm biased. - Finch
"Look at me Satan"
I don't even think Satan would look at this creepiness kiddo. - Puga
"Satan he hears this. He had me believe in him." - Finch
I heard this one. Pretty spooky but I still like her - JaysTop10List
"You know Satan holds the key to the lock." - Finch
I love this song so much. If you play it normal at the intro it sounds like their saying "Satan! " A bunch of times but reversed its actually "Join Us! " A bunch of times. But I've known about this when I was listening to Slayef for the first time so it sounded like "Join Us" when I hear it normal. - SirSkeletorThe3rd
Must be a song about the illuminati - ruJILLous
"Join us" 45 times - Finch
Who knew a song about the earth and love and good things would have a demonic message played backwards? Anyone! That's who! It's good and has a positive meaning forwards, but backwards it's WAY different.
When played backward, you hear the Lord's Prayer - believed that when said backward, this prayer will summon demons. - Finch
Because of the background of the video
The whole music video has satanic symbolism and even has the Illuminatis 'All Seeing Eye' near the end
"Paul is a dead man, miss him, miss him, miss him." - Finch
I'm not surprised. This show is a master at hidden messages. That's why this show is awesome!
Stan is not what he seems is what the whispering says backwards. - RalphBob
Around the middle of the song it sounds like Corey growling "Gah! Making noises! " But played backwards it's actually "Don't look at me! " And "I said don't look at me! " - SirSkeletorThe3rd
I love this song. Unfortunately, I don't know the hidden message off by heart. So I can't repeat it. - IronSabbathPriest
