Stairway to Heaven Backwards Full Lyrics

Because I’ve noticed some people searching for the “full lyrics to Stairway to Heaven reversed” and probably find my lacking in that regard, I will post an email that I received this morning, partly here and partly in the comments. (It’s too long to include the whole thing on the main page.)

Well, you have certainly caused a stir here. It seems that everybody is flocking to your site. Nice work. I must tell you, though, you have it wrong. Here are the lyrics to the part that you have on your site:

So here’s to my Sweet Satan.
The other’s little path
Would make me sad,
Whose power is faith.
He’ll give those with him 666.
And all the evil fools,
they know he made
us suffer sadly.

I have discovered that the ENTIRE Stairway To Heaven is a full and COMPLETE backwards message. EVERY word from start to finish is undeniable and distinguishable.

Easily heard if you know what to look for. I wired an old record player’s motor to run in reverse, and got out my old copy of the album. It’s very scary. As I played it backwards last night over 10 times, I got chills down my spine every time. How it was done, I haven’t a clue. I have changed my opinion that the computer is the best vehicle to listen to it backwards. It was definitely made for vinyl, and the needle moving in the wrong direction combined with the grooves of the record make it clearer. I don’t think that the computer can duplicate that. THIS below is the absolute and correct translation of the lyrics to ‘Stairway To Hell’ WORD FOR WORD without any chance of there being any mistakes.
Trust me, THIS IS IT:

Plaaaay backwards,
Hear why its sung here, oppositioner..
Allll on track, all arriving
They all sing, and they are one.
Shall I loathe you now, parishoner?
Oh hear Him, Christian within me.
It stirs my sin; the river,
Oh, she swells with our lousiness.
All my life will end for him?
We’re all out of signs,
I know I’m sorta shocked
To hear The Lord,
My God now will save me!
Oh I will n’er be saved,
Because I live with Satan..
One wish today;
That you’ll all pray for
Three who will make it here late.
Pray now and you’ll see..
The ‘Lord’ turned me on,
But, oh, I was the shaggy fool..
Clothed in agony,
Lost at a height.
There’s no escaping it,
Nor his woes..
So here’s to my Sweet Satan.
The other’s little path
Would make me sad,
Whose power is faith.
He’ll give those with him 666.
And all the evil fools,
they know he made
us suffer sadly.
Ohohohoh…
“Family won’t get loose,
They’re offered me.”
Always soothes the worker.
Always will be as we know now
“I see ruins,” said he,
“the world they offered me?
Who wished the Lord’s fall?”
If we lose feather,
Say you’ll save me!

And no wimps can bend the rules..
And no wimps can do..

Hunt next to the shore,
‘Cause they see all from there,
See here’s the news,
Who walks with mute grief!
Perhaps no-one found thee…
“Heavy, lift me out,”
Spake the Reve,
“Someday, failed, we’ll lose one line-up,
They’ve gotta leave forsaken.”

And no wimps can do..
And no wimps can do…

He, who say the lords
Thoth have our laws,
Maat must be superb. Mass is ended..
Over there,
He who should learn thee.
Any moot that serves by my sworn music,
I wish it with snow be shushed,
All for my mass’s sake.
Hear why its sung,
here, oppositioner, Ohh..
He who should show
May make his show worthy,
To look, for us, odd.. sickly,
There’s one chance – take his show.
Hold thy head,
Hear why its sung here. oppositioner.
Who owns this earth built below?
Oh sweet Israel…

Granted the lyrics he provides are possible, but I still hear the lyrics I originally posted. I listened to the whole song backwards with these “full and complete lyrics” in front of me and yeah a lot of them you can hear – the power of suggestion is pretty strong. But a lot of the words are hard to hear imagine, even when you know what you are listening for. Let me just finish by saying that anyone who believes this whole Stairway to Heaven backmasking thing is anything more than a neat coincidence is not the sharpest crayon in the box. Sorry guys, I know its fun and everything but let’s get real.

For example, I had a different person recently thank me in an email and tell me about how she was throwing her old albums away because of it…

Dear Jeff,
Thanks for your Stairway to Heaven (and other songs) backwards! I’m putting my old Led Zeppelin albums from the 70’s in the trash straight away!

Much appreciated!
Rita

I can hardly believe it. Next time you or anybody you know, wants to throw out collectors items including their old Stairway to Heaven vinyls, please send them to me instead.

  1. I think it may have been on purpose with the one clue of the forward song not making TOO much sence. I reversed the whole song and it did sound very clear. So I wasn't really convinced. I wanted to reverse a record but the needle broke. Well now I'm rambling. I'm really not sure what to beleive, currently. Also, to the people saying all the stuff about throwing away all of their Led Zeppelin things, shut the hell up. Because of one possible message in the greatest song ever, by the greatest band ever, you shouldn't get ride of it all. One should not be so eaisly decived by what others say. And that all I can think of…

  2. I'm just curious, has anyone played the exorcist backwards? maybe it has a message about God :)

    Cheers

  3. oh my gosh…..very very very very very creepy….i tried it as well on audacity wiht the real verision of stairway to heaven from the album early days and …oh man its just creepy..i wonder if they did tat on purpose..i hope not well is til love the song,….

  4. First of all, either God is a completel failure or does not exist. Why? The greatest thing He created was us, or so you'd all like to think, and that's just embarrassing. Take a look at the world, the ignorance, and hell, the posts in this forum. If God is responsible for this, hail Satan. God is all powerful. God would not want evil to exist. Evil exists. Simple logic, it's all bullshit. Religion saves no one; it starts WARS.

    Wonder why people heard voices while talking to a burning bush? THEY WERE ON DRUGS! AND PEOPLE WERE TWICE AS DUMB 2000 YEARS AGO AS THEY ARE NOW!

    Everyone believes what they want to believe. People fear nonexistence. People are too stupid to explain everything. The result is religions. The same goes for listening to music backwards. You can read the lyrics a person has come up with for the "backwards messages" while listening to the song, and they will seem to make sense. Listen to a completely different set of lyrics, and they could just as easily make sense. Even something as simple as "Play backwards. Hear words sung" is being argued as something else. Even foward lyrics can be confused with other things. I used to think the song "Get your freak on" was "Get your freaky ho". I was sad when I learned the truth. Basically you're all hearing a sound similiar to "Satan" and filling in the words around it.

    All of this, and the previous posts, proves you're idiots, and yes, that includes me. I'm just self aware.

  5. oka, well this is waht i ahve to say about this

    i heard the short clip and now i heard the full clip backwards, i used traktor version 1, and i wasnt really freaked out at all.. although i found it really interesting

    im a christian, i was sort of offended but i dont kno why i ddint freak me out the first place

    but to the earlier post, someone said, what if hearing the song forwards is about walking UP the stairs to heaven, but if u hear it reverse, ur actualy walkign DOWN the stairs away from heaven? like going up is to hear the song forwards, and hearing the song backwards is to go down the stairs? that kinda made me think, im not agreeing with that idea, but it kinda makes you think twice about this whole idea

    also, i heard the live version of this song, and played it backwards, and yeha, u can stil hear the lyrics, not as much as clear as the studio cut orginal version of it tho, but if the satanic mesages are stil heard backwards in the live version, than this is NOT a coincidence by Led Zepplein, kuz they mustve done it on purpose, and i dont think a normal human can come up with lyrics and write a santanic message backwards at the same time

    but have you guys ever thought, what does *reverse function* symbolize? i dont know, what *playign backwards* symbolizes, not neccesarily playing a song backwards, but that function it self

    and if u guys are really questioning this often, i would highly encourage someone to go up to one of the band members, or the person who wrote the lyrics to this song personally and ask him, or them, waht they have to say about how they wrote this song

    hah good luck doing that

    PS: is LEd Zeppelin still touring?

  6. RoooOOoOOoOoOOoOoOOfl
    I have an opinion on this matter, but im not going to share it with any of you… whoever moderates this should ban some of the total and utter morons from posting comments.

    Anyway i quickly made this account so i could laugh at all of u, except the guy who did this.
    He had a nice idea, and im sure his intentions were good, i liked hearing all the backmasking, esp the plainly obvious one by Pink Floyd, and the funny as hell Britney Spears one.

    The preacher guy garnered a little bit of my respect tho.

    Check his main detractor:
    "What kind of preacher are you? you never did say what God you worship!!!"
    – Comment posted by faithfulservant at 8/15/2004

    Interesting, interesting indeed, I was brought up to believe there is only 1 god, how many do u believe in heretic?!?!?!

    HAHAHAHHA

    anyway, in all likely hood I'll never be coming here again, so…
    1) thx to the guy who did the flash piece it was interesting
    2) and thx to the ppl who made me laugh
    3) dont bother replying to this post

  7. Apparently Led Zep bought a tool shed where a satanist wrote a satanic poem, so maybe that shed part in the backwards lyrics is refering to the shed they bought, this could be evidence that it was intentional. Of corse I am basing this on rumor, I don't know if any of that was true, so if you are interested see if you can find out more about their shed.

  8. Hey people, I've read a ton of your comments about how you're so disgusted by the evil message of satan here, however, seeing as there IS no satan, you should be disgusted with your own ignorance. The word satan, and the idea behind it, was derived from the egyptian words "set" and "an", set being the brother of osiris, he was considered evil because he was envious of osiris, and tricked him, and then he cut osiris into 14 pieces and scattered them around the earth. "an" means dog, and was closely associated with the star sirius (set's realm) just as osiris is asociated with the constellation of orion. Now, Set was a God, and when the catholic church came into power, they set about branding the Gods and followers of all other religions as evil. There never was a real "satan" in catholicism, however there was a Lucifer. Lucifer was alleged to be an angel who was kicked out of heaven. However.. He never did go to "Hell" nor does Hell exist, Hell was contrived as a tool of controlling the masses, as incentive for followers of the church to devoutly follow its practices. It was also used to scare other cultures into converting to a monothiestic faith. And if they didn't, the church just killed them. :P But my point is that, even if we humour the morons who take the bible literally, Lucifer was the ruler of EARTH. God cast him out of heaven to dwell forever in the underworld. The world under heaven. When Jesus is tempted in the desert, lucifer takes him up to a high point and they are looking down over all the kingdoms of the world, and Jesus is told that all this will be his to rule, if only he should worship Lucifer.. and its made very clear that it is indeed Lucifer's to give.
    Anyway, the bible is all about symbolism. You can't actually believe there's a little pointy tailed devil with a pitchfork dancing around in lava trading souls for fast cars and singing careers.. That's why I hate Christians. They can't think for themselves. Everything in the bible, and indeed in backwards stairway to heaven is SYMBOLIC. Use your minds people.

  9. i'll start out by saying i reallize that no one except for someone hwo has nothitng to do in the middle of a hurricane (<< me) has actually read down this far.

    i am atheist, but very open to listening to everyone's beliefs. i think because of this perspective (as an atheist) that i have a more open mind towards things like this.

    what i want to know is, Led Zepplin has possible satanic messages in their song(s)….SO WAHT? nowadays you see outright, straightforward messages against go all the time. what if Led Zepplin wrote this song the other way around? so that waht 99% of what everyone heard was a "satanic message"? would everyone freak out like they are doing in this post?..probably not, it would just be another song on another cd.

    personally i think it is a very cool twist onto the song. i have it forwards and backwards on the same cd. i just see it as another song.

    for those of you who still are "freaked out" or whatever to the point of throwing away your records…dotn burn them, dont throw them out, talk to me, i will gladly take them, pay for them, whatever.

  10. This is another song from1971 that deals with the Charles Manson murders. It is written about Susan Aktins, who stabbed Sharon Tate to death in August 1969. Manson taught his followers that to kill was to give live. She was looking for her stairway to heaven. The Manson bunch used to hang out a place called the Spiral Staircase. The song is about a lady (Susan). The song talks about all that glitters is gold. Charlie told the their was a city of gold beneath Death Valley. The song says there's a sign on the wall. This is the words that Susan wrote in Sharon's blood. The song says the words have two meanings. When Susan wrote the sign in blood she was trying to throw the police off as she was trying to blame black Americans for the crime. Charlie was into air, trees, water, animals. ATWA. He has a website named ATWA.com The song BIRD (animal) sits by the brook (water). Sometimes all of our thoughts misgiven. Killing is migiven, that's for sure. And it's whispered that soon. All the rockstars knew Manson, a wannabe rockstar, was behind the killing before the police knew. The piper will lead us to reason. Manson is been called the pied piper, if you've read book on him you'd see this and only he knows the real reason behind the reason for the murders. And it makes me wonder. This is the singer, Plant wondering aloud, why the murders occurred? There are two paths you can go on. The Manson bunch were facing the death penalty and offered a deal. Tell us what you know and get life in prison or else we seek the death penalty. Your head is humming and it won't go because you don't know. The piper calling you to join him. Susan didn't even know why she killed these people and Charlie was asking her to shut up since she was talking to much. Dear lady…Again it's Plant talking aloud in song. When all is one and one is all. The Manson believed everything one is one and one is all. Check out Charlie songs, he sings about this in 1970 before this song was recorded. Going to California is also on this album. Listen to that song and it's also written about these murders. It referrs to the mountains and canyons shaking. Sharon lived in a canyon and these murders shook up California. The sea was red and the shy grey. Sharon's blood and the darkness these murders caused. The song opens with then singing about meeting a girl who drank all his booze and smoked all his stuff. Charlie was connected with famous rockstars and he and the Manson girls were dealing drugs and have sex with the rock n' rollers. They zep boyz were heavy into drugs and I bet they met Charlie and some of the girls back in the day. There is also a hidden Santanic meesage on Stairway to Heaven, not a coincident since Manson was called Satan, as well as Jesus Christ.

    Found this on a diferent blog.

  11. take it from someone who took a college psychology class: IT'S ALL IN YOUR MINDS. if you were to listen to the entire staiway to heaven backwards, you would only be able to "make out" a couple words, MAYBE phrases. but since someone posted the "lyrics" for backwards stairway, your minds have been contaminated. you see, the brain was built to make connections. because you're seen the supposed lyrics, your brain tries to connect those lyrics with backwards stairway.

    i still don't know why people are freaking out, because even these supposed lyrics don't make sense. i can make sense of 90% of stairway, but these "lyrics" someone posted just don't make any damn sense. add a dash of rumors (such as led zeppeling buying a tool shed) and you think they have significance. led zeppelin could not have written backwards lyrics too, because they would have to write 8 minutes of lyrics for the song forwards, then by trial and error, replace and fix lyrics so that it makes sense backwards too (which it does not make sense backwards).

    i have a record player, but i'm not about to ruin a perfectly good led zep vinyl by playing it backwards because some anonymous person comes on a message board saying that you can only hear it correctly on one form of media. playing it backwards digs groves, and i like to take care of my stuff.

  12. Hey, I just can't see why everyone's so upset about this. Stairway To Heaven is one of the greatest songs ever made, so what if there is a "satanic message" hidden in it? I mean, it's just a song! Personally, I see this as a funny thing, nothing to be taken too seriously. I don't understand why everyone's all "Oh, this is so creepy, I'll never listen to Led Zeppelin again, 'cause they worshipped Satan". Damn it, I didn't even think people so religious even existed any more! This is like something from the Middle Ages… why don't we all go hunt witches too?
    Seriously, if all you people think Stairway to Heaven backwards is creepy – have you ever listened to black metal? There you have satanic messages. And I don't believe in them either. I just hope nobody accuses me for being obsessed by Satan just because I happen to like Mayhem.
    I just wonder who first came up with the idea? This is really interesting.
    Finally, if my English is bad – excuse me, I'm Swedish and fourteen years old, so I might have used poor grammar and spelling, but I think my message will be clear anyway.

  13. I have a program that lets u reverse tracks and i reversed the song and amazingly its true. The porblem is i dont know how to post the mp3. if someone would help me do that, everyone could hear the full song so post it if u know how

  14. you can just convert the mp3 to wav and play it in the program "sound recorder" that comes with windows computers.

    to convert an mp3 to wav, download dbpoweramp (dbpoweramp.com). then download the proper codecs from the site (if needed). it's free, by the way.

  15. Thank you for this song and by the way i don't believe this song is writen FOR satan i think it's written BY satan. It can't be that a person sing for words and when you reverse it the tekst is so clear. i tryed it when i sing the text and reverse it i can't hear anything of satan an when i sing the reversed tekst i hear nothing about the staiways to heaven song… hard to be coincedence???

  16. when you play Led Zeppelin's Stair Way To Heaven beckawrds you hear evil messages but i assure you that its no BS its true. Sure, i was skeptical too the first time i hear it. so do what i did. Buy an old record player at a garage sale or radio shack and a copy of Led Zeppelin's Stair Way To Heaven. Put the record player in neutral and manually turn it backwards. It might take you a little while to get the speeds right but when you do listen closely to the lyrics. Personally i think its easier to reverse play the record a little faster then normal speed because the lyrics are high pitched and it is easier to make the words out.

  17. When you think about it, it makes perfect sense. When you reverse the direction of a stairway to Heaven, where does it go? Hell, of course.

    -Will

  18. please forgive what im about to say if you will get offended.

    When i read poetry or someone writes a poem.. what is the most important bit? The last two lines.

    Look this stairway stuff.. the guy with the vinal who im gonna assume knows wat hes talking about gives us his word his assumption is unquestionable. For the sake of argument.. lets assume he is correct. The first part of the "poem" slightly, ever so slightly praises satan, however it does say he causes suffering? meaning hes bad? i dont know im assuming. The second half spins a negative look towards satan. Now im not religious but i know my religious history and ive studied christianity etc. Israel is not a place for Christians! It is a place for Jews, who according to the Talmud, are not to associate with Jews.

    Now whether u know or not, after the battle of waterloo, basically the whole of England was bought by a jewish family as the stock market crumbled, (legally, so nothing wrong with it of course) and who ever has money makes rules of course. Hence why israel was able to be delcared a state even tho palestinians were mistreated.

    i think that Led Zep are trying to say somehing witht he last two lines, and bieng open to all points of information and making my own mind up.. I think these last two lines are the focal point, FUCK SATAN, who cares if its a coincidence, they were probly High and wanted to do wat every toher rocker was doing in the 70s.. now of course im gonna get people questiong small parts of what ive said to make me appear ignorant, so im not gonna read any replys or update. Ive said wat ive said. Who CARES! The music played forward is Good.

  19. Just finished reading all the way down here and decided to experiment with reversing my own voice. In the song, the word Satan is an illusion. Record yourself saying yes and reverse it. You will get 'Satan' but wuth no 'tan'. your mind creates the tan sound because 'satan' is a sound you recognize and are looking for.

  20. Okay for those of you who want the full backwards song, I have it.
    But I'll only send it to you if you have MSN Messenger; I don't have the time or energy to try sending it through email or linking it.
    So if you have MSN, add me at Kitty_wiity_baby_kitten@msn.com and I will send the song.

  21. "Just finished reading all the way down here and decided to experiment with reversing my own voice. In the song, the word Satan is an illusion. Record yourself saying yes and reverse it.

    THANK YOU!!

    your brain strives to make connections, so it's natural that it will make things that aren't actually there. if you listen to the song backwards without these "lyrics", then you will hear almost nothing. but if you read the lyrics BEFORE you listen to it backwards, your brain will want to make the connection between the lyrics and the song because it thinks there is an actual connection there.

  22. finnaly someone with some sence… I mean, DOH! without some crazed individual posting some ****ed up lyrics on a site you wont be able to distinguish any of that nonsence. The middle part, I admit, it sounds strange. could be coincidence, could be zep's satanic message or it could be nothing, but the rest is just plain PARANOIA! could example with the "yes"="satan"

  23. Hey guys,
    I've been really displeased with the way you have been talking about my band… when we wrote this song, we didnt have any satanic intentions… we were just a little high. Please don't make anymore posts in this blog. I'd appreciate it if you all didn't spread rumors about the band.
    Thanks, Bye

  24. HEY!! i head the song and it is creepy as hell but the song really confuses me… is it really satanic? cuz in the beggining he said he was with god and then he wasnt and at the end it says oh sweet isreal!?!?! What is happening through out this song?

  25. The guy who wrote this song would have had sold his soul to the devil to make it since it seems impossible.
    Even if robert plant didnt mean for it to be satanic he should say it was, yea people will think hes satanic but they will also think hes a genius. And can some one please explain to me what the song is about, like what the toolshed is about and what the bustle thing means.

  26. I have all the Answers needed!

    I know because i have read the same story in 3 magazines, 2 websites, and 2 books.

    Some bored guy was playing his old albums backwards on his new record player for fun.

    He heard it and got excited and told every body…

    This whole thing is demoting god and about worshipping satan!

    I would tell you everything but i'm short of time.

    Its kind of funny, because the song forword doesn't make any sense ;p

    Anyways, people are saying they don't understand how it happened. I have looked into this matter, and have come to the following conclusion

    The subconsious mind is much more powerful than the Concious mind. People use that when the perform REAL psychic feats and when they spontaneously combust and such things. This part of your mind will go off, bells and whisles on anything. When you see some kind of random math problem on a billboard or something, you'r mind will figure the problem out before your consious mind does, and it is also the source of your dreams.

    Your subconcious mind will play any sound you hear forward, backward, sideways, and upsided down (dont ask) so you will beleive and remember anything you hear backwards even better than what you hear forwards.

    So, you're mind will also take words and phrases that sound like each other backwards (somewhat) and will create messages based on what you truely beleive in. this is how this entire song was made, so there for it was not exactly *Purposeful*.(this is the same part of you're mind that becomes possesed or allows people to speak in tounges)

    There are other songs that are completely backward messages too, revolution #9 says things "Get HIM OUT, GET HIM OUT" and something like a car crash I could hear Paul's voice saying "GET ME OUT OF HERE"

    I forget the other ones though

    Even the most common and childish songs may have messages. infact, "Happy Birthday" sounds something like "When will you be back" or something like that.

    Incase you are wondering I study the paranormal

  27. A few weeks ago, I found this site, telling the story of the song, and what it could be about. Those of you who think the song doesn't make sense should read this, since it seems to be pretty true.

    http://thinkcap.com/articles/pop/zeppelin_stairway.html

    This site mentions Jimmy Page had an Occult Room. The IMDb (Internet Movie Database – imdb.com) says that at one point, he owned the house of Aleister Crowley, a satanist. So if this is true, Jimmy had beliefs of Satan, but it doesn't prove he worshipped Satan.

    As for the whole backwards thing, I only heard backwards the short clip of the "If there's a bustle…" verse. I thought it sounded a little like it, but I believe that's just because I read the lyrics beforehand, and subconsciously heard what I was told.

    As for the whole backwards speech thing, listen to the Iron Maiden song "Still Life". At the beginning there is backwards talking. This is actually Nicko McBrain, the drummer, saying "Don't mess with things you don't understand", or something like that. The guy from ReverseSpeech.com ignores this, and says that a different part of the song backwards says "The evil man is there". I personally don't hear it.

    "Still Life" is actually about a dream Steve Harris (the band's bassist) had (he writes alot about his dreams*). This site says that speech played backwards contains different messages, subconsciously placed there, and often has the truth or what we are really trying to say. Supposing this is true, Jimmy would be telling us of his Satanic ways (the song was also written by Robert Plant as well, and I can't find anything to say that Plant had anything to do with Satan).

    I, personally, don't believe in God, Satan, Heaven, Hell, or that reverse speech contains subconscious messages. But think about this – a video of someone running forwards reversed. They run backwards, i.e. what happens when it's reversed is the opposite of what actually happened – the song isn't actually supposed to be about Satan.

    *Interesting sidenote – Iron Maiden's hit "The Number Of The Beast" doesn't praise Satan, it's another song about one of Steve Harris' dreams. In the band's recently released documentary, "The Early Days", Steve says he isn't a Satanist.

  28. Okay, it is feasible that they may have written a Satanic song and backmasked – it is possible, though each person has the right to interpret that as they will.

    The thing that you have to remember is that on one of his later solo albums, Robert Plant also did a song called "If I Were a Carpenter", which was clearly a pean to Jesus.

    So even if people dabble in the occult, they can still be Saved. And for those who don't believe, it just shows that people – even Led Zeppelin artists – can change over time.

  29. I've listened to Stairway in reverse (on my computer, seeing as I don't want to do any damage to what I want to remain a mint copy of Led Zep IIII), and I don't know if it sounds any different on reversed vinyl or what, but I can definately say that the vocal line between the solo ("As we wind on down the road" to "To be a rock and not to roll") is as you say it is. I can't be sure about the rest.

    Also, you could damage your stylus reversing a record like that, it's designed to pull, not push…

  30. hi

    its just gross to brainwash 8-10 year old children who like pokemon and i never liked led zeppelin but my friend told me that they were good and i was in some chatroom and someone said that theare was hidden message in led zepp songs so i googled it and found this page and listend to it and now i hate led zeppelin
    worshipping satan is just gross and theare was an teacher in new york universiti who playd the song for his class, then he asked everyone to write the first thing that komes intoo their mind when they listend to it. half the class wroted something sbout satan or lucifer so the brain does her the message. its just terrable to brainwash peoble like that!

    p.s. i like metallica would you check if theare is any satanic messages in their songs

  31. Isak…
    One personally I don't think led zeppelin was intended for 8-10 year children. Two its a fact that the brain can't process music backwards and forwards there is just too much information. Three the song isn't necessarily written for satan but about satan. Lastly buy a dictionary.

  32. Hi, i think this is real but my parents say its a hoax i want to prove to them that this is real!! My friend and i were looking for what was satan backwords and its played three times so we looked for the only word that was played three times and that was "there's" i love Led Zepplin and i think its really stupid to like someone until you hear satanic messages in their songs then be all like omg eww gross i hate this person now. I would love to have a record player and this record just to prove my parents wrong and show them that I for once have been right! I wish i could prove this and be sure, i really want to know so i am not going to read the full lyrics until i get a chance to hear the full song backwards in person because then i won't know what i'm listening for. Thanks for your information Jeff.

  33. hey jeff,
    its cool that you flipped all these songs. my best friend told me about this. That yoko ono thing just scares the shit outta me. my friend told me to listen to it backwards with the lyrics hidden. actual ive heard about the same things so ur not insane or retarded like some dude said. pleeeease flip the whole entire song. thanx! -Lilay

  34. After reading the first 30 posts and pgdn-inng the rest I would have to say that this blog is full of kids.
    religious bits:
    If your christian, fine
    If your anything else, fine

    This website is fun – reversing any audio (or video for that matter) is funny and there are several things that are done deliberatly done – take the reverse earth episode of red dwarf for example (for you americans its a BBC program)
    If you get 'wierd'(whether you consider them to be satanic or not) messages when playing audio backwards – good for you but for christs/ sorry [insert deity here] sake don't fear it!
    Don't ask me stupid flaming questions either like 'what God do you worship?' as if He/It is a football team that just shows no respect for YOUR creator. My message to you all is…
    FOR F**KS SAKE DO NOT TAKE REVERSE MESSAGES SERIOUSLY, ITS JUST A FLUKE.
    On a lighter note has anybody reversed german/spanish whatever songs to see if there are any 'wierd' messages in either english/german/ whatever?
    With the sheer number of languages out there, we could reverse ANY audio and find a message backwards in a different language – how many of us actually know all the languages currently in use on the planet?
    This is why I'm telling you not to fear any of this.

    remember also that some time ago a very famous person was jailed for saying the Earth goes around the Sun by fellows of some of the people posting on this page.

  35. Led Zep still rules. Sorry, if I'm insulting anyone, but some people here are mixing up Jimmy Page and Robert Plant in this forum. Robert Plant was the singer who created this song because he wanted to give up the Sex, Drugs and Rock and Roll life and become a Christian. As many people know he has his own soft rock Christian band. He was the one who wrote the song. Jimmy Page was the Guitarist and did not write this song. He does own a house that was owned by Aleister Crowley, but who cares. When I heard about this I thought it was cool and didn't care. If a person is going to destroy stuff from Zeppelin they should destroy stuff from great bands like Alice Cooper, Iron Maiden, Judas Priest', Black Sabbath and Ozzy Osbourne. People are mixing up the words. (It is crazy how if you look at the phrase "And She's buying a stairway to heaven" turns into "Play backwards". The words just don't fit in. ) Led Zep and Stairway to Heaven still rule and this is just something interesting that someone found one day.

    "FOR F**KS SAKE DO NOT TAKE REVERSE MESSAGES SERIOUSLY, ITS JUST A FLUKE."

    Just tell me… how does an entire song have a backwards message in it that is just a fluke? EXPLAIN THAT ONE!!!

  37. also… that "Earth" episode of Red Dwarf is called "Backwards" and the whole point is that it is a backwards universe… in the book it is universe 3, while ours is the cock up universe where things go wrong all the time. universe 3 is SUPPOSED to go backwards… I suppose people who listened to this song backwards there would also be wondering "Why are there "Christianic Messages" in a song about Satan? Then you would be complaning about how people where being childish for reversing a satanic song and hearing a PERFECT reverse message… although then technically you would be complaning to them BEFORE they done anything becuase you are complaining AFTER they've done something in this universe…

    Sorry, i get carried away when it comes to red dwarf

    But still, the reverse song is pretty much a 1 in 1 chance of it being made on purpose

  39. As a hardcore Led Zeppelin fan, I am gonna completely deny that this was done on purpose. I can't find my vinyl copy of Stairway to Heaven but when I do, I'm going to rig my record player to play backwards. When I hear it myself, I might have my suspicions.

  40. I cannot believe all of you! Do you have any idea how many English words sound like Satan when played backwards? This sounds kinda sad but me and a mate of mine spent an hour saying words into a mic and then playing them backwards, we found no less than 24 words that sounded like Satan!

    The whole song backwards makes LESS sense than the song forwards!

    If I may make a comment to "faithfulservant", you said that we were made in god's image and that we should therefore be able to understand songs backwards when they're played forwards. What a pile of cr@p! IS HUMANKIND CAPABLE OF CREATING WORLDS?! IS HUMANKIND CAPABLE OF BEING ALL FORGIVING AND KIND?! NO!!!

    amh1010, you know what I mean and probably understand the idea better than I do. I agree with you fully, your mind interprets the gibberish that you hear into words that make a weird message.

    The message is a simple coincidence, I have seen so many versions of interpretations on the internet that it's lost it's novelty.

  41. omg no one made a comment about one of the band members possibly posting

    Hey guys,
    I've been really displeased with the way you have been talking about my band… when we wrote this song, we didnt have any satanic intentions… we were just a little high. Please don't make anymore posts in this blog. I'd appreciate it if you all didn't spread rumors about the band.
    Thanks, Bye

  42. bear in mind the sound "NATTASE" has to be said somewhere in the song to hear Satan played backwards

  43. to the guy two or three posts up… is there a god? hard to say really as there is no proof he exists… the bible isnt proof as that is an all ages story book

  45. Theres a part @ 4:30-4:35 min while played backwards or the part"And its whispers that soon then we all call the tune"forward is "Lord forgive me for saying or using the word santan"

  46. Hey I'm no Satanist Nameless child (Although I am probably the only person who could be bothered to read that backwards message he wrote)!!!

    There are some songs that only sound like backwards messages when you see backwards lyrics. These songs HAVEN'T ogt backwards messages in. The songs that have backwards messages are the ones where you can here them clearly without having a single look at the lyrics, as i did
