Top 10 Most Famous Songs With Hidden Messages When Played Backward

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
1 Stairway to Heaven - Led Zeppelin

This has got to be a coincidence. How is that message supposed to mean anything? "The one whose little path would make me sad"? What's that supposed to mean? How is that supposed to get people to join Satanism?

Also, even if it did make sense, how are they supposed to do that live if they put it in the speakers?

Stairway to Heaven backwards is Highway to Hell, and Highway to Hell backwards is Stairway to Heaven.

When it's played backward, it turns out it was actually a Satanic message.

2 Another One Bites the Dust - Queen

Fake. It sounds like someone trying to say marijuana while the dentist does a checkup.

3 Revolution # 9 - The Beatles

Oh yeah, they made conspiracy theories ever since they went to America. With the Jesus joke, I bet Americans think that was a conspiracy theory.

You'll probably get something more pleasant altogether if you mish-mash it like fruit in a blender.

"Look at me, Satan."
I don't even think Satan would look at this creepiness, kiddo.

4 Hotel California - The Eagles

"Satan he hears this. He had me believe in him."

5 Strawberry Fields Forever - The Beatles

Paul is not dead. Paul is not dead. Paul is not dead!

6 Single Ladies - Beyonce
7 Gonna Raise Hell - Cheap Trick
8 Hell Awaits - Slayer

I love this song so much. If you play it normally at the intro, it sounds like they're saying "Satan!" a bunch of times. However, when reversed, it's actually "Join us!" a bunch of times. I've known about this since I was listening to Slayer for the first time, so it sounded like "Join Us" when I hear it normally.

9 Eldorado - Electric Light Orchestra

"He is the nasty one. Christ, you're infernal. It is said we're dead men. Everyone who has the mark will live."

10 Earth Song - Michael Jackson

Who knew a song about the earth, 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.

You just ruined one of my favorite songs. I hope you're happy.

Michael was against the Illuminati and wanted to spread love and happiness.

The Contenders
11 Dinner at the Deviant’s Palace – Cradle of Filth

When played backward, you hear the Lord's Prayer. It's believed that when said backward, this prayer will summon demons.

12 I'm So Tired - The Beatles

It sounds like he says "yah Newman" if you play the reversed lyrics backward.

13 Made Me Realize - Gravity Falls Theme

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 backward.

14 Bohemian Rhapsody - Queen
15 Die Young - Ke$ha
16 Iowa - Slipknot

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!"

17 One Last Time - Ariana Grande
18 Walk This Way - Aerosmith & Run-DMC
19 Dangerous Woman - Ariana Grande
20 How Are You - Cheap Trick
21 Damien - Iced Earth

At the end of the song, Jon Schaffer repeats backwards the message from the middle of the song. It's a quote from the movie "Damien" that inspired the song:

"Your pain on the cross was but a splinter compared to the agony of my father. I will drive deeper the thorns into your rancid carcass, you profaner of vices. You have done nothing."

I love this song. Unfortunately, I don't know the hidden message off by heart, so I can't repeat it.

22 Timmy Turner - Desiigner
23 Baby One More Time - Britney Spears
24 Lucifer - Jay Z
25 I Got You - Bebe Rexha
