More Backmasking Songs

Because of my , I've been getting a lot of emails with requests for other songs that have backwards messages as well people sending me lists of songs that apparently have just that. Here are some excerpts (for those of you that care).

  • Cradle of Flith – "Dinner at Deviant's Palace" When played backwards, you hear the lord's prayer
  • Missy Elliot's song – 'Work It'
  • The song Karate by Tenacious D. At the end reverse the last word he says and it says, "donkey crap" quite clearly.
  • Led Zeppelin – Stairway to heaven
    In the end of the song there is an inverted message which goes something like this:
    "Because I serve Satan, God denies my and there is no escape" (I'm not sure about the exact words, because this was never played on that cassette; they only told that it existed).
  • Styx – Snowblind
    A inverted part:
    "Satan is moving our voices"
  • The Beatles – Number nine
    "Let me out, let me out, let me out" and then continues: "Turn me on dead men" or "let me under men", in the cassette that was described as a suicide message or something like that =).
  • And something else funny: if you found a .mp3 where the crowd is calling kiss back like "kiss kiss kiss, kiss kiss kiss", it sounds backwards 666, 666 etc.
  • ELO – Eldorado
    There is a part which goes inverted like this: 'He is nasty one, Christ your infernal'.
  • ELO – Fire and High
    There is some babble which is inverted: 'The music is reversible, but time is not, turn back, turn back, turn back'.

And along those lines another email message goes into that last one more specifically:

"Hey man, I really dig the site dedicated to backwards messages in songs. I was spinning Face the Music by ELO, and i found another hidden message. In the first track, Fire on High, during the halleluia chorus part in the intro, there is jumbled speaking, meant to sound freaky. If you spin the album backwards, it says 'Turn back now. Turn back now. The music is reversible.'"

And to finish off someone commented about one of the song clips I have on my site.

"I think that your clip of John Lennon's Imagine, when reversed, actually
says, 'Oh Beezelbub. Must have me.'"

Comments: 101

i know of another song with backplay like this. in the song "stay together for the kids" by blink-182, in the beginning there's a short part that sounds like screwed up feedback from the cd player, i can't remember what it's supposed to say backwards but it's something like the "empty spaces" one where it's something like "congrats on figuring this out motherfucker". yea and by the way this site is pretty cool.
"Darling Nikki"

Many more hidden messages can be found at:

"Darling Nikki," cited as porn rock before Congress, is about a dominatrix in a hotel lobby masturbating with a magazine. In part, the complaint was that the album cover (flowers, and Prince on a motorcycle) wasn't explicit enough to warn kids of the suggestive
lyrics. Senator Paula Hawkins apparently was not aware of a backward message hidden in "Darling Nikki." The last thirty-five seconds of the song is gibberish. The music changes abruptly and becomes a repeated glottal sound. Then a two-syllable sound is repeated twice, something like "heaven, heaven." Unintelligible
speech follows. At the end is a sound reminiscent of rain or bacon frying , and wind sounds.

Played backward, the message becomes:

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

It is clearly Prince and the Revolution singing this. The words are clear but the intonation is funny -- the linger on some words. Perhaps this is to make the reversed message you hear playing the record normally a little less conspicuous.

This is a weird reversal of the supposed secret message menace. Raunchy forward lyrics conceal a religious secret message.
how do i play your backmasted tracks
For Revolution No. 9 by The Beatles they accually say Turn me on Dead man, which they probably put in there purposly due to the Paul is dead rumor (same with I'm So tired.)

Someone should check out Europop by Eiffel 65. The begging is jibberish.
Hi...This is Vaughn. I am a Zeppelin FReak. OK look. thos satanic messages are bull. page didnt tintend on this, ok. im tellin you. he was alone wen he thought of the lyrics. he played for days whiler being high and wrote it... this part were the satanic message isnt about the devel. just because people cant figure out wut the hell it means. It isnt like ur gonna go and every song that u dont understand go play reversed. I am a Christisn so dont think "ohh he is just saying that because he is a poser..." well guess wut i believe in God and i believe there is a devil. and i also believe that (straight from jimmy's mouth)"im comming cloer to God" wasthe quote. he wanted to be a christian the days he wrote it. And i believe that the morals of the song ar this:::

(my part is inside the **)

There's a lady who's,sure
All that glitters is gold
And she's buying a stairway to heaven.
*there is this lady who is shurr she wants to die*
When she gets there she knows
If the stores are all closed
With a word she can get what she came for.
*She thinks ohh shit i cant buy my drugs*
Ooh, ooh, and she's buying a stairway to heaven.
*she will OD and die and she is aware of this*
There's a sign on the wall
But she wants to be sure
'Cause you know sometimes words have two meanings.
*She knows she will die but the two meanings are heaven and hell*
In a tree by the brook
There's a songbird who sings,
Sometimes all of our thoughts are misgiven.
*god is always there and always leading you but satan is there too and mis leadiong us. leading uss toeard hell*
Ooh, it makes me wonder,
Ooh, it makes me wonder.
*OOh it makes me wonder if God is out there*
There's a feeling I get
When I look to the west,
And my spirit is crying for leaving.
*She is dieing and she know it and want to leave*
In my thoughts I have seen
Rings of smoke through the trees,
And the voices of those who standing looking.
*smokin bot gets u high and as you exhale the smoke goes up and you gety closer to death... you are now high and voices are in your head*
Ooh, it makes me wonder,
Ooh, it really makes me wonder.
*Is God Out there? Some where*
And it's whispered that soon
If we all call the tune
Then the piper will lead us to reason.
*when you die if your saved God will take us to heaven*
And a new day will dawn
For those who stand long
And the forests will echo with laughter.
*youll be in heaven and happy while you stand with God ate the gated of heaven*
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.
*if there is something penetrating your bariaer(satin trying to enter your life) Its ok, its satin trying to perpat you for hell and hate againt god, but there is still time to follow God, and he will keep you away with your choise of believing or not.*
And it makes me wonder.

Your head is humming and it won't go
In case you don't know,
The piper's calling you to join him,
*times running up God is telling you to go to Him.*
Dear lady, can you hear the wind blow,
And did you know
Your stairway lies on the whispering wind.
*Can you hear God calling? you cant get to heaven unless thro him.*
And as we wind on down the road
Our shadows taller than our soul.
There walks a lady we all know
Who shines white light and wants to show
How everything still turns to gold.
*And as we all believe in GOd, there is more noon believers than believers,if we're in heaven yhoull se her and we'll ask her how she managed.*
And if you listen very hard
The tune will come to you at last.
When all are one and one is all
To be a rock and not to roll.
*if you listen to what God is saying, he will let you know wen we all are in heaven as 1family and we then are broken agian. and we should be solid not something to fly by.*
And she's buying a stairway to heaven.
*And she put her life to risk.*

email me at PLz let me know ur ideas
ill be happy to hear them... and yet again these are my opinions. soo if you are offended im sorry.

Dear Jeff. I have been veiwing your site for a while now (mainly the backmasking) and noticed Tenacious D's album had a song which appeard to have a backmask at the end of one song, as I have a copied album I didint know the song but your site has it now anyway. Another I noticed was Slipknots 'Before I forget' As the song ends somthing new plays which is a load of whispering, faintmusic and beeping. I thought you would be the person to come to on this and check out the whispering and see if the beeping is morse code?

Thank you
Hey Jeff
Nice site.

I was thinking about, maybe you will rewind or "findout" if this is right, HIM - I'ts all tears, backwards, about in the middel of the song, theres beeing said 666,666,666 very fast.

And Blink 182 - Feeling this, in the start, a man says something, i don't know. And at the end of the song, the 3 last "couriuos" or what ever it's called, I'm from Denmark. Backwards, first of all It sounds fucking cool, but it sounds like he is saying something, Mark. And ofcource stay together for the kids, can you rewind them, something I'dont know.

Lyng aka DC21
Dear Vaughn Willenbeger,
You musn't also forget the literal meaning of the song. The band hired a woman to build/rebuild a stairway up to the attic of thier house. The door of the attic had a "keep out" sign on it. "There's a sign on the wall but she wants to be sure." The attic room was believed to be a place where they kept all thier guitars and instruments, but later it was found out it was used a place of worship. Jimmy Page is also strongly considered a satanic worshiper.

P.S. - All of your secret meanings of the song arent even actually your own interpretations asshole, theyve been around.
I thought it was about the Sharon Tate murder?
I love the site man....but not to be disrespectful or anything.... some of the messages arent put there intentionally.....i recorded my self saying some of things and when reversed it says the same thing....its a really cool site tho....but i do know some songs that do have hidden messages such as Makavelis cd....The 7 day the site tho! its one of the coolest sites ive seen in years....any of yall who wana chat my aim name is duducks7 and my email is
chack out the end of Interlude (PSA) track 10 on the black album by jay-z theres a voice like "lelbum noar the black album"
ill try to play it backwards soon
HI jeff,me and my friend got ur site from a friend on the net and we have a tape,its not a song or anything like that but,its not a fake either.About 3 years ago me and my parents were watchin a movie on tv and were recording a show on my tv upstairs,after the movie was over i went upstairs and got the tape.When i put it in the vcr and it started playing,but the shows sound wasnt there.The picture was there but instead there was a really deep voice speaking some sort of gibberish,and there was a real deep low playing music in the background,like the instruments werent tuned,there were doors slamming and the sound of chains being graged,srry bout the spellin,on the floor.Im 12 and it made every single hair on my body stand up,we know are house is haunted but,we've never heard anythin like dis.The first thing i said was maybe u have to play it backwards to know what its sayin,but we dont know how to.If u could email me back on this,or any1 else who knows how to and would like to try,my email is,thnx for listening
Very cool man!
I've tried a couple of songs and I found a nice song:
Linkin Park - Standing in the Middle...

...I'm standing in the Middle...

...Alive Maniacs...

when i first read Cavoosey's post i thought he was joking. first thing i can hardly stand French people and i cant speak a bit of french. Even i knew what the chick was saying on Public Service Announcement. She says "Le Album Noir"...Or "The Black Album"....ignorant american
First of all, hello everyone! I'm sorry if i'll make some gramar mistakes but my english isn't so good.

A few days ago I've been listening to Britney Spears - Oops I did it again and since I saw on this site that she had a funny message on "Hit Me Baby One More Time" I've thought I can find some messages in that song too. Guess what? I did. It seems that played backwards, through out the song "I'm login Satan" is song and, at 1:12 (inverted song) something like "Satan is an enemy of Christ" is played.
Me and my freind sang hit me baby one more time into the mic played it backwards and it seemed to say "we got stoned but we didn't mean it" and if anyone wants to hear it i still have the file saved on my puter
Hair of the Dog by Nazareth - they sing "now you're messin' with -- a sonofabitch" over and over which sounds a lot like "same old lies" over and over.
Jeff, now that you've gotten some exposure on G4TV to re-ignite the controversies, here's a funny one:

"Weird Al" Yankovic decided to capitalize on the backmacking craze as well, in a song called "Nature Trail To Hell (in 3-d)". During a violin solo in the piece, you hear unintelligible sounds which, when played backward, says "Satan eats Cheez Whiz" in a really sneering tone.
also werid al's song antherone catches the bus sound like oral sex and say the same message about marjaina but is more warped
Is there any song by Evanescense that has a backwards message, my friend is a huge fan of Evanescens, but he also likes to play stuff backwards because he likes to "crak codes". I just want him to know that there is a backwards message if there is any.
Oh yes, if there is a backwards song in evenescense, please let me know by emailing me at you can also IM me there. My IM is greenleafpic
There's also a message in the live version of "Lake of Fire" that Nirvana did (a cover of the Meat Puppets), when played in reverse, theres a spot that says "The lord has given us christ and he is here to keep us from satans sin". Also, if you play Pantera's "Cemetary Gates" backwards at the part that says "I must reverse my life, I cannot live in the past", it comes out "I love satan so much"

hey i got quite a few well 3
black dog, heartbreaker and walk this way
black dog goes at 1 point near the begining "there was a magistate said get on your wheels get on your way"

heatbreaker is somehow black dog which is quite puzzling

walk this way is "ooh my saten" or something satanic

i just discoverd that if you play aerosmith walk this way on guitar backwars its the same tune as enter the sandman
how do you guys listen to the songs backwards? this is very interesting and i'd like to give it a try :)

Hey you should really check the Chicago song from little nicky, its probably not true but if it mis, I'm gonna cry out of laughter.
I think I found a backwards message
in the System of a Down song called bounce the one ware he talks about a pogo stick.Near the end of the song it plays soft eerie
music then you hear the guy speaking gibberish.
I cant figure out what it says because i dont know how to play songs backwards.
Cheap Tricks song, "I WANT YOU TO WANT ME". (Studio version). During the breakdown of the song, You can slow down the speed of the song, and hear what sounds like "The Lord's Prayer", but not in correct text. Sounds like he's mocking the prayer.
Oh man...the led zep backplay thing was really scary.
In Black Sabbath's "Iron Man" When The line,
Now the time is here for Iron Man to spread fear
is reversed
It says
And there's always the master, the one.
It's cool and I'm surprised no one else has found it
In the song "Enter Sandman" by Metallica, go to any part in the song where the lyrics "exit light" are. Now reverse it. Ironically enough, when reversed, you can clearly hear "Endless Day" being sang in the same style as "Exit light" at that part. Also, go to the part where it says "Enter night". Reversed, you can hear clearly "It's me, I know it's me." No real signifigance, but it's there.
In Led Zepplins "The Battle of Evermore" about half way through, you can hear VERY undeniably, "I am a Bible, please Spit on me, so funny." I even tested it by asking my friends to listen, and they came to the same conclusions. I think this would be cool to see on the site. Thanks for your time,

Jimmy paige is my idle and half of my wants to beleive that it was accedental and the unconcious mind is speaking to us but the other half of me wants to think that he put this in there on purpose. I also heard that in a live version of the song in 1976, there is verse of the song backwards that says. forgive me lord, forgive me lord, forgive me lord. How could this be considered satanic. It is a stairway to heaven not a stairway to hell. or somthing like that.

And any one who cant figure out how to play things backward I will tell you. It really helps if the file is saved as a wav. I have found it easiest to use a program called audacity and ues effects reverse, but if you dont have that and most don't you can open the wav file in sound recorder under accessories entertainment at the start menu. I have found either of these to work greatly. Using this I have found some messages that most havent. Such as right before the whole satanic thing it says there's no escaping it and plaaaay backward hear words sung. Also in God Called in Sick Today by AFI it says its not my fault its not my fault, you cant make me do it.
Yeah, theres definently something in Eiffel65 song's, but you can never interperet into anything or I can never get my hands on any good .wav files for those. I dont own the disc, I got a select number of tracks from the free napster days. And for another one of the blog comments on here, I dont think there was ever a song by Linkin Park titled "Standing in the Middle". I've checked Hybrid Theory, Reanimation, Collision Course, and Meteora. No song titled that is found.

Also, there is definently something in the end of "The Red" by Chevelle where it just sounds like he countinuously shouts "piss like you" or something like that.

Finally, theres also something in N*Sync's "pop" where you ca nclearly hear them say "you suck stick".

So there you go, hope it helped.
Well keep in mind that Linkin Park used to be called Hybrid Theory, and they have an album under that name (a lot of the songs on Reanimation came from it-"High Voltage"/"My December".) On LP's first album the song "Pushing Me Away" definitely says:

"Pull the knife out"
"Everyone avenges you,cut the skin"
"Cut the sin"
"Releasing what I feel inside... good news, you're dead..."

Very scary indeed. There goes their soccer mom image!
It seems like Taking Back Sunday has some subliminals in it too, but I had a hard time listening because it was a recording on Windows Sound Recorder from an external CD player, and it was an emulated copy of Windows 98 on an old iMac. I think "You Know How I Do" says something about "It's obvious, it is over". Maybe I should reverse all the tracks and overlay them, because they all seem to have similar messages.
On Incubus' A Crow left of the Murder the song "Smile Lines" in reverse sounds like:

"Free someone...stab them in the heart...(free them from the love?)"

I listened to this song forward once before I even knew about subliminals and I got kinda depressed and irritable and I actually did want to stab and kill someone, which is really f'ed up.

I think the song "A Crow Left of the Murder" talks about nerds and cutting yourself...I think it does, at least...
Marilyn Manson's song "Doll Dagga Buzz-Buzz" is completely new song in reverse. Of course, it makes very little sense forwards, the lyrics are kinda senseless and stupid. The reverse lyrics, however, have a very consistent meaning-hookers are Satan's workers. I only can figure the lyrics for the first half of the song on my own, the last 2 or 3 verses I can't make out. They sound religious though (" sweet lord..."):

Yeah, Satan does work all night
Yeah, Satan, he sucks on everyone -(x5)
Well somehow I don't get it, somehow I...wait...
Slut, ignite the fire...wait...
Stake out the fire...
Well somehow he...and somehow he...
wait...slut, ignite the fire...
Wait...Stake out the fire
Screwing everyone is your
Screwing everyone...
Ohh...everybody wants someone else
Lay your slit on the floor
Lay your pussy on the floor (x2)
Yeah, Satan does work all night
Yeah, Satan, he sucks on everyone

Then the verses I can't make out come in, punctuated by the chorus and "screwing everone is your way" parts.

I did this on an old iMac with Quicktime. I put the marker at the end of the song and hit the
apple + arrow keys to play in reverse.

Someone needs to rig a turntable and listen to these songs in reverse on vinyl. It would work so much better than CD quality digital.
Ok, if u listen to Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger by Daft Punk, within the 1st sixty seconds of playing it bacwards you can slightly hear "Gotta get the girl next door", it's crazy!
First of all, very nice site. I enjoyed it very much. I only have one comment to the people thinking that Backmasking can influence the listener... it can not. It is impossible to feel a certain way or wanting to do a certain thing because something is said/sung backwards. (If it is sung in a normal way, would you do it then?) If it could influence people, everything we said to eachother could do harm, even your mother saying that your eggs are ready. (Please look beyond my bad spelling and grammar)
Greetings San
Uhh.. To brandflakes, I notised that not too long ago... it seams there are other parts to it that song like: 'Erva take your cloths off. Erva and Milo'(I didnt hear the whole song though... I went to a different site and found a link to the reversed part of that song)
I found a new one. eminem's under the influence. in the 5:10 min to 5:17 min range on the song being reversed it says "cuz im the one who you think is not gon' sing for you slim shady,shady, shady. It's fake" it says all that including the it's fake part.

tell me if you would like my hear my backmasked song. i was just going through songs on my computer and said hey that might be a good one becasue of the mumbles. i use wavepad to do this. go ahead try this for yourself. jsut send me an e mail saying you want to hear it and i will send the file with the lyrics i think it is and the time area you need to hear by using select region feature.
my email is so e mail me if you want to hear it. ok
there are alot of key words playing stairway to heaven even forward like "somtimes our thoughts are misgiven" and the word piper commonly used as a slang term for the devil is used alot."And it's whispered that soon, if we all call the tune
Then the piper will lead us to reason" and "Your head is humming and it won't go because you don't know
The piper's calling you to join him"

Also try backmasking some jim morrison stuff I would bet you find somthing
on the song hit me baby one more time Britany spears at the point 2:25 - 2:19 played backwords it says "listen up ...woooowoww immmmmm ugly" then shortly after at point 2:11 -1:46 it says" i was a slut yes yes baby i baby i was baby i was..... sleep with me im not to young." listin to it and check it out and tell me if u hear the same thing.

Okay, in the song Crawling by Linkin Park. I used the method you said you used and recorded the minute into the song HE STARTED SINGING. Remember that. Click the record button when you hear Chester JUST START SINGING. I can't tell you the times. Also, listen to full minute. This is ALSO IMPORTANT.

Anyway, what to look for is this:

Something like, "Please believe me"
Something like, "Feeling Woozy" right after that.
And something like, "It is not my fault"

You do all the hard work after that. These, however, seem to have been done on purpose. Other then "Feeling Woozy", it's all on the same subject in a way. He's telling someone it isn't his fault and asking them to believe him.
I have played the pushing me away remix backward and found something!

Same with the other thing. Start recording EXACTLY when you hear singing. Or the second before. Which ever you like.

Instead of speaking backward, in one part, Shinoda is STILL saying some of his verses.

I'm not sure if it's at the moment he's saying them, but it's these two:

(Everything falls apart, even the people who never frown eventually break down)

(Everything has to end, you'll soon find, we're outta time, left to watch it all unwind)

You CANNOT miss them. This was probably also placed in there on purpose.
What you call backward message is in short pure bullshit! YOU WANT REAL BACKWARD MESSAGES??? LOOK AT VENOM! Venom made no bones about the fact that they put backward messages on some songs! Like the song In a League with Satan. Or Satanichist.
The way to recognize forward that there is a messagfe backward is you hear that vop sound in the forward track. This is because in order to put that track on a song it must be recorded forward then simply reversed for the song. It's not rocket science! But it isn't the BULLSHIT you mention! I'm surprised you didn't pull the stupid shit of Judas Priest did backward messages when THEY NEVER DID!
I played the "Are You Ready?" at the beginning of KoRn's "Blind" backwards, and I heard "YEAH...WE RULE."

At the very end of Powerman 5000's "Stereotype", the line "You're Just a Stereotype", is intentionally reversed on the album.

Another example is P.O.D.'s "Guitarras de Amor". Listen to it backwards, the vocals were intentionally reversed.

And, in Mando Diao's "sheepdog", i don't know the forward lyrics, but if you play the part were it slows down backwards, you hear "knife past the feline"
The reverse in the the Pushing me Away remix, is all that gibberish that Shinoda says. I just fiqured it out.
OKay, Vauhgn, 'ure' an idiot, page didn't wrie the lyrics, fag, robert did, they even say so in an interview. They were about to record for it for zoso, but there were no lyrics so while they were practicing, plant was writing them. Get your facts straight, and 'ure' spelling.
Hey can you play the song NERVANA backwards and see if it says anything?
You cant understand it playing normaly so why not backwards?
my website which u can contact me at:
Did you know if you play the beginning of the song Rocket(the LP version) by Def Leppard off the Hysteria album backwards, they clearly say "We're fighting with the Gods of War." Try it soon and post it on your backmasking site.

Hey guys, there's this game called Wario Ware Touched! for the Nintendo DS.

There is this song called "Ashley" or something like that. If you play the song in fast foward, it says

"I have granted the kids to hell."
and "I rise above hell."

Its really clear too. It should be on the website.
In "Enter Sandman" by Metallica, if you reverse it at 2:04 it says "It is I, the evil one"... Forward it is "And now I lay me down to sleep"
Thats really cool...
Hey are you the person who created that website where u can listien to those songs backwards? thats really cool.
If you are the person, and i have the right blog LMAO
Could u perhaps try to see if Nervana's song: Sounds like teen spirit says any thing backwards, u can barely understand it forwards, so what about backwards?
There is this song on the korns greatest hits c.d. It's called "twist" The whole song is gibberish and occasionally someone says "twist, twist". I think you should look into it. I am pretty sure that there is some Backmasking involved.
"Twist" is exactly what it is, just jibberish. "Before I Forget" has nothing on it too, I tried it first cuz it's my favorite song off that album. Smells Like Teen Spirit" I don't believe has anything cuz but I'll keep looking into it. BUt I did hear something on Avenged Sevenfold's "Unholy Confessions" something like "Always see the shadows" but not too sure.
This isn't a backwards message, but "Ashley's theme" on "WarioWare Touched" when sped up in-game displays satanic messages. For more info, visit

"First of all, very nice site. I enjoyed it very much. I only have one comment to the people thinking that Backmasking can influence the listener... it can not.

wrong! because the brain can pick up a massage backwards, this means that you do not really recognise it, so it doesn't go through your thought process, but still is in your brain, and thus is not thought over
Dragostea Din Tei sounds like it says "yea yea I think we should all have sex tonight" to me. I uploaded foward and backwards clips to my site
hey jeff love the site man we're hooked on it we've been trying ourselves to do the backmasking we love zeppelin, pink floyd, beatles all that stuff. This stuff is creepy an we love it! we may have found one for you. this is from the song us and them by pink floyd. In the first fourteen seconds of the first verse. It says " the one immortal we met him... then we ran all away now they war beside me...mad man sucks." thats what we heard check it out yourself it may not seem to you but please try. email us at and/or

hey jeff its matt and brendan again we are 13 years old and we just want to tell you that we found two more songs. we found another part of stairway to heaven that clearly says "cause we live with satan" its when he says your stairway lies on the whispering. the other one we found is on AC/DC's back in black during the chorus it says "I love satan, alright. And satan knows I love him. love him. love him!!"

Matt & Brendan
You missed one... at the end of Sgt Pepper, in the run out groove, you supposedly hear "We will f*ck you like Supermen".

I think people have found more backmasked tracks in Beatles albums than anything, because they scoured them for supposed "clues" about Paul's death.
Hello, i found your site on forums and i think it's very cool.The stairway to heaven is so freaking me out o_0. Anyway when i heard of backmasking i did a search in google and i found that in a Nirvana song (dont remember which but it's the one when it keeps saying "My denial" or sth) in reverse it says "I HATE YOU!" Also in prdigy breathe reverse there is sth like this "We are devils... you and me..)

Man im only 14 years old, and the secret message phenomenom had a huge impact on my "world undersatnding"

I cant belive that so many people are listenning to songs and they have no idea that probably they're being brainwashed...
Allo, allo, Jeff.

- I'm a huge fan of what you've done; it's always provided a good fifteen minutes worth of entertainment before I go off trying to find messages myself using the same method you have. I am proud to say that I've found three songs with possible messages.

1) "I Hate Myself and Want to Die" by Nirvana -- The beginning of the second verse, the lyrics "Broken heart and broken bones" in reverse turned into "Smoke more marijuana."

2) "You Know You're Right" by Nirvana -- The lyrics 'I will never bother you' in reverse sounds like 'Will you love me, then move on?' This one I am not completely certain with as I am with "I Hate Myself and Want to Die," but like a lot of these things, it's open to interpretation.

3) "Kashmir" by Led Zeppelin -- The beginning of the second verse, "Talk and song from tongues of lilting grace, whose sounds caress my ear" in reverse (and again, this one is open to interpretation, even moreso) sounds like "The answer is mass fear. . ." What follows has been a debate among a number of people I've shown this to. Some say "In Limbo's ponds" and the rest say it ends at "The answer is mass fear and the rest is gibberish.

Anyway, I hope you're still interested in this stuff and maybe willing to post it among the others.

- Thanks again!

- Dave.
I think i have discovered SOMEthing... In Gwen Stefani's what you waiting for, you can hear in a part that she says "satan's a sexy miss" Or something... Maybe she believes satan is a woman? Anywho, its not to easy to hear, but just try hard to hear it, you should hear it if you just listen...

This is how to backmask songs:

EASY - Have a converter* program on your pc, and convert an mp3 to Wav(wave), then open it in "windows sound recording*"
Then click "effects*", and "backwards*", then play...

Hard - Open sound recording on your pc, then click the red dot to record while you listen to a song in for example windows media player. If the song continues while the sound recording stops, just hurry and click record again. Then go to "effects*" and then "backwards*", and play.


*something like that, im just 13 and from Norway
I've found something really obvious, but on Nine Inch Nails cd single "Further Down the Spiral" There are a few songs on there such as "Eraser (Denial;Realization)," and "Erased, Over, and Out," That fastforwarded repeat the phrase "Erase me, erase me, erase me," over and over again, but you have to fastforward it, and not reverse, or rewind.
Enter Sandman off of Metallica's "Black Album" has subliminal messages in the chorus:

Forwards:"Exit light, Enter night-Take my hand..."

Reversed:"Game of his, Satan must play-Endless Day"

The "endless day" part is obvious, it's the rest that you have to listen hard to hear, but I assure you it's there.

Someone mentioned that Blink-182's "Feeling This" contains subliminals-I think I figured out what they say.

Forewards:"Fate fell short this time, smile fades in the summer-Place your hands in mine, I'll leave when I wanna..."

Reversed:"I don't wanna be lost on meaning, broken...hurt myself again, come back Jesus, save me..."

I don't think it was an accident though, because the foreward lyrics say "Are we alone, can you feel it? So lost and disillusioned." as though they're hinting at the subliminals.
hey, on the jay-z/beatles/dangermouse's grey album, on the interlude if you play it backwards it says lots of stuff like "murder murder jesus 666", "catholics i gotta murder them", "I can introduce you to evil". It's freaky as hell because the track is already has a pretty creepy beat.
Hi Guys,

I found this site just by doing a search on the song "Kiss" by Prince and the Revolution, and I wanted to see if anyone else found what I found. I've not yet seen the main pages of this site to see if Jeff already commented on this, but when "Kiss" is reversed, within the within the first 30 seconds of the song playing backwards (during the part where Prince sings "You Don't Have To Be Rich To Be My Girl" at the end), you clearly hear the following: "Ssik" ("Kiss" said backwards sounds like "Sick"); You then hear Prince CLEARLY shouting "The Lord Is In My Life;" "The Lord is Coming Soon For You"

Everytime I play this song reversed it sends chills up my spine eventhough it's not a satanic message. But I can't help but wonder if and why would these artists do this intentionally?

In 1987 on the now defunct T.V. show "Eye On L.A. / Eye On America," the host Chuck Henry did a story on teens committing suicide after playing Vinyl records backwards. The most notorious albums that were played backwards were those by Led Zepplin, Megadeth, and Metallica (The same songs you guys talked about here were also mentioned on that show back in 1987).

It was when Chuck tested songs by Prince (and other artists) to see if there were hidden messages in his music, that I heard for the first time Kiss's hidden message.

Fourteen years after I saw Chuck Henry's report about about "Kiss", in 2001 a found a recording of it (from the "Under The Cherry Moon" soundtrack), copied it to my .... and I tested it for myself, reversed it, and sure enough I heard what Chuck was talking about ..... it freaked me out for days when I tried it .... I recorded it to a cd and quickly ran and told other people about it. I had even told someone about "Kiss" in a chatroom. That person just happened to have the song on his computer, and when he played it the way I suggested it (reversed through the sound recorder program), all he kept saying was "Oh my gosh...""Oh my gosh!" He was shocked out of his mind.

Again, what you here is "Sick"; and "The Lord is In My Life"; "The Lord Is Coming Soon For You"

In my opinion, if this was a deliberately intended, it is one heck of an eerie backwardmask to hear eventhough it's message is good (I think). And then as a Christian myself, I must question ... who is he calling "The Lord"? Is he referring to Jesus or Satan? --We may never know for sure this answer, but one thing I can speculate is this: It was rumored during the 1980's that Prince became a Christian after he'd been involved in some religious cults, (this is before he changed his name to a symbol and converted to being Jehovah's Witness) ...

Interesting.... and Go figure!

Freaked out even more than before by your site (in a fun way),

another song I heard about is track 1 on Tupac Shakur's CD "Makavelli (The Seven Day Theory)"

Playing forward, towards the end of the track "Intro ...." you hear a voice that quickly eerily says faintly "Someone Shot Me."

That whole album and Tupac's music that was released after that is eerie, because it's like he told his own story of how he died .... The photo on Makavelli's cover has a picture of Tupac being Crucified like Christ.

And in the music video for "I Ain't Mad At Ya" ..... Tupac gets shot by someone riding in the car with him (whose face is blurred out in the video -- presumably it's Death Row record producer Shug Knight who stands accused of his murder).... Tupacs funeral is also depicted as he sings "I Ain't Mad at Ya"...

ooooh! SOOO EEEEERIE!!!!

Another thing is the reason why people chose certain nick-names. When you play them in reverse the reasons are stated, like one of my friends who was attracted to me gave me a nick-name, and in reverse it becomes "Please kiss me"! Very powerful, your subconcious is.
Im H.I.M.'s song "Wings of a Butterfly" the part in the chorus goes:

F:"Rip out the wings of a butterfly"

R:"Hail Satan, He'll bless you with nightmares"

I didn't use a recording of the song to do this, I just sung the lyrics the same way as in the song, recorded them then reversed them. The subliminals become clearer when you speed them up.
The Used's album, In Love and Death, has satanic messages in it.
The song "Take It Away"-

Forewards:"Burn the sun, burn the light,take,take,take,take,take, take it away,take my hand,take my life, take,take,take,take,take, take it away!"

Reversed:"Oh, yes yes yes yes yes, I can't help it, I can't help it,Oh,yes yes yes yes yes, can't help your self"

The song "Yesterday's Feelings" has even creepier messages-in the beginning of the song someone says something very quietly that I can't make out completely but I can tell it is normal forewards English. In reverse it very clearly says "Satan is here". It also says a few times throughout the song "Satan is..." (can't make out the rest) and "I need some evil". Creeps, I don't think I'll be listening to them anymore! I'm Christian.
Another thing that is very interesting is that your own speech and writings convey what is being thought in your subconcious mind. I recorded and played a few of my own writings in reverse on my PC and found some interesting things, like peoples names that I was thinking about and so on. I was getting hit on by a girl once while I was writing a poem, and when I played it in reverse it says "girl hitting on me, blonde hair"! I've recorded/played letters people have written to me in reverse and found what they were really thinking, how they really feel! You can tell if people are lying by doing so, because their subconcious is so powerful.

I honestly think that our subconcious mind thinks every which way, forewards, backwards, side to side. One of the letters I analyzed completed it self in more detail when I played it in reverse, with everything in reverse making sense, explaining itself in perfect order even though the first line was written BEFORE the second line, when they are reversed the first line EXPLAINS the second line.
Hey jeff,

Great site first of all. that led zepplin thing freaked me out until i read vaughns blog entery. i am a strong christian and i believe that satan does work through music. but if you lead not to temptation, you will have everlasting life. if you have read the bible, you will find out that satan is here on this earth and hes trying to corrupt the WEAK. do not let him corrupt YOU. the only way that you can get to heaven is to follow jesus and believe that he is your savior. please do not let the devil corrupt you!
Did you know when you play the Simpsons Homer's "Doh!" voice and turn it backwards it says "What!"
I have found that Hilary Duff has a song titled "So Yesterday" and in the song she sings "At least not today"
played backwards you can hear "Hail this nazi land". Just thought you might find this one interesting as well :D
Mindless Self Indulgence has some pretty messed up messages when played forwards, but when played backwards you get silly things like, "Do your Chores." "Obey your parents." "Go to school." They would do that kind of thing on purpose, knowing the lead singer...they're retarded like that.
Also, that ELO song "Fire On High" is really creepy played backwards. Gave me nightmares. >.< What's with the heckling Christian?
I didn't find these by myself the were in this site
It's quite intresting. In nirvana's song "Come as you are" when played backwards, you hear "Coward, I am the worst coward the worst- Aaauuggh!! Why am I insane? I need money, I need money, I need money, I need..."

This site is awesome :D
In Moby's "Lift me up" it says "It's fo' real" instead of "Lift me up", and in "Beautiful" it says "Oooh the window's falling out", "Oooh it's remarkable!" and "Wobble my shuttle, people". xD
If you play metallica's Enet Sandman backwards at the part where he screams "Grain of Sand", it sounds like Endles Sin
I know one backmasking part,and in the forwards version of the song you hear it backwards pretty clearly.It's in the song Iowa by Slipknot.At around 8 minutes and 25 seconds you hear random screaming that makes no sense at all.I have the clip backwards saved on my computer and the lead singer,Corey, is screaming "Don't Look At Me!" repeatedly.It's pretty cool.I like all the subliminal messages you have on here.
Hey this is to the guy name wtfmate in the song Bounce by system,I've listened closely and it says "Oh I like to spread you out, touching you everywhere" or something..I can't quite make out the last word because he interrupts it and makes his normal weird noises.
If you take Green Day's song "Holiday" and reverse the song right after PUN-ISH-MENT, you can hear "THE HONORABLE SLIMSHADY" very clearly.
burning down the house is a good one the full thing and you get another song god i hate them i have a link for were this was done on newgrounds

also got the words on screen as it plays
You guys are so naive if you think that those are not messages, you call yourself christians and listen to led zeppelin anyway? is that christian music, i dont think it is, actually i know it isn't, and i know that led isn't a christian, quote, "Seems that the wrath of the Gods, got a punch on the nose and it started to flow; I think I might be sinking." Going to California. "Soul of a woman was created below." Dazed and Confused. those are in songs, you really think that hes talking goodly about god. It says to look out for false prophets in the bible, you christians think led zepplelin is good, now do you? If you want go to media player and play his song backwards, they arent made from someone else, there directly from him. And i love how you say he was high, when your high thats when evil spirits can take over your body.
EVERYONE!! go to
you will hear the cradle of filth song backwards it really wierd because of the voice BUT ITS SO RAD trust.
