Top 10 Songs with Backward Vocals

These songs contain hidden lyrics and to hear the words you have to play some song sections backward.
The Top Ten
1 Hell Awaits - Slayer

It's in the intro: "Join us! " (x45), followed by "Welcome back".

2 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."

3 Stormbringer - Deep Purple

When played backward, at the beginning you hear "We're fighting with the gods of war."

5 Disease, Injury, Madness - Between the Buried and Me

"You must wait for the rest of the non-believers/If you disagree, you will sleep/You must wait for the rest of the non-believers"

6 Still Life - Iron Maiden

You have to play backward the beginning of the song where drummer Nicko McBrain gives a speech, haha.
"Hmm, Hmmm, what ho sed de t'ing with de t'ree bonce. Don't meddle with t'ings you don't understand", followed by a belch.

7 Empty Spaces - Pink Floyd

"Hello, Luka. Congratulations. You've just discovered the secret message. Please send your answer to Old Pink, care of the funny farm, Chalfont." (voice in background) "Roger! Carolyne is on the phone! " "Ok"

Backward lyrics are the other part of the chorus: "I put my thing down, flip it, and reverse it", and, "Watch the way Missy like to take it backwards"

9 Azwethinkweiz - Incubus
10 Announcement Service Public - Linkin Park

When played backward, you hear these phrases: "You should brush your teeth, and you should wash your hands."

The Contenders
11 665 - Soundgarden

CjWriter1997 - yep, rock and metal are actually SANTAnic and not satanic but rockers don't want to admit that, haha (you can hear them worshiping Santa Claus only when play tracks backward).
Also, don't you think Tom Araya's hair and beard make him look like Santa Claus? (Tom Araya of Slayer)

"Santa, I love you baby. My Christmas king. Santa, you're my king. I love you, Santa baby. Got what I need."

Such a perfect troll to those who think rock music was satanic. More like SANTAnic amirite guys?

12 My Name Is - Eminem

"It is Slim" / "It's Eminem! "

13 I Remember Larry - Weird Al Yankovic
14 Rain - The Beatles

I think this is too low at 50. It's one of my favorite Beatles songs, and it was the very first song with backwards vocals.

15 Loser - Beck
16 Karate - Tenacious D

"Eat donkey crap."

17 Whookam - Steve Vai

A long message, beginning with "There is a god; the universe is not without a creator, sustainer and protector. He is the ocean of bliss",...

18 Darling Nikki - Prince

"Hello, how are you? I'm fine. 'Cause I know that the Lord is coming soon. Coming, coming soon",

21 Jesus Wrote a Blank Check - Cake

"Don't forget to breathe in."

Sounds like they're saying we miss him. It's referenced to "Hillel Slovak", a former RHCP member who died by herion addiction.

24 Revolution 9 - The Beatles
