Messages in Songs When Backmasked (Reversed)

Messages in Songs When Backmasked (Reversed)

Rock has been associated with the dark powers and satan as it has been labelled “The Devil’s Music” since donkey’s ages. It was bad when Elvis swung his hips, but only got worse as time progressed. As newer artists came into limelight with a more robust sense of “Rock” to their music, overly alarmist religious crowds began accusing bands of straying people away from God.

This thought was at its peak during the late sixties to the mid eighties, with bands like Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd and even Queen falling in the category. The same overtly inclined religious crowds began indicting bands. They accused them of inserting Satanic messages in their lyrics, which could only be deciphered if the song were heard reversed.

This phenomenon was termed as backmasking and has been a cause of major hue and cry over the music industry and their ways of divulging innocent audiences into a dark / satanic occult.

Is there any amount of truth to these mysterious messages or are people just spewing stories in their minds and using their imaginations a little too much? Read on to see for yourself.

“Another One Bites The Dust” by Queen (1980)

Starting off with a rather mild version of what people were implying, this 1980 hit from Queen not only possesses the powerful vocals from Freddie Mercury, but also ‘The Devil’s weed’. You guessed it right, when played backwards, the song does sound a lot like “It’s fun to smoke weed”. With marijuana associated with the devil since long, it is clear why we are getting this song done with,in a jiffy.

If you do not want to be associated with the devil in any which way, but want a wave of relaxation, we suggest you go for delta 8. Here is where you can find best delta-8 flower

“Baby” by Justin Bieber (2010)

The song that catapulted the pop icon’s career in the music industry has often been linked with the devil himself. The canadian pop star that swooned teenage girls with his voice, is said to be the evil incarnate, or his associate if nothing less. When heard in reverse, the chorus sounds very distorted yet disturbing.

The words and the way they are said, “baby, baby, baby, oh.” reverberate to

“Acknowledge my lord, lord. He’s here. I’m the evil one. Satanic new world, new world, new world. I want it. Let me in, let me in, yay war. Let me in, let me in, let me in, yay war.”

“Hotel California” by the Eagles (1976)

A timeless classic and an ode to the sinister and seductive draw of Hollywood, the most recognised song by Eagles has had its fair share of trouble with its lyrics. Both played normally and reversed. If you do play the initial verse while backmasked, you can hear “Yes, Satan organized his own religion,” “Yeah, Satan hears this, he had me believe in him.” along many other messages from the Devil himself.

Looks like the eagle did fly down, way down into the lair of the dark one indeed, or did it?

“Stairway To Heaven” by Led Zeppelin (1971)

Perhaps the most famous hidden message of them all, the connection with guitarist Jimmy Page and the occult goes way back. He bought famed Satanist Aleister Crowley’s mansion, and rumors persist to this day that he sold his soul to the devil in exchange for fame.There can be many associations with the devil in this song, as the antithesis to ‘a stairway to heaven’.

If you listen to the  “If there’s a bustle in your hedgerow…” verse of the song while reversed ,it seems to say “Oh 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 tool shed where he made us suffer, sad Satan.”
