Hotel California has a satanic message: Forwards lyric: ...in the middle of the night, just to hear them say... Backwards lyric: Yeah, Satan hears this, he had me believe in him.
Radiohead originally made this song by reversing a demo version of another song, "I Will", which they later recorded for their next album (Hail to the Thief, 2003) in a different arrangement. If you play "Like Spinning Plates" backwards, you can hear similarities to "I Will" in the chord progression and Thom Yorke's vocal melody.
"The Music is Moving (Its Beat)," Mabel Pines
At the end of the song, a strange message appears. Reverse it, and you get a weirdly sexual message.
If you put :Music Sounds Better With U" in reverse, it says "I'm not asking".
The whisper before the first chorus says "Joe Trohman is lame". Joe Trohman is the band's guitarist.
The "da ba dee da ba daa" melody when played reversed sounds like "Hide the body, eat the body".
When reversed, one part of the song sounds similar to "Yes, an alien must know," which is followed by "Ah, I'm sure you'd believe that;" almost a subliminal jab at conspiracy theorists who believed in backwards masking.
If you play part of the lyric "He left yesterday behind him, you might say he-" it will sound something like "Yes, someday he'll be the Satan!" or "Yes, someday now be the Satany!"
The B-side to his 1966 single “They're Coming to Take Me Away, Ha-Haaa!” is basically the song played backwards! Kinda weird if you think about it...
When the song is played backwards, you can hear Chester screaming "You should brush your teeth and you should wash your hands!" Hence the song's title, which is "Public Service Announcement" with the words in reverse order.
When the line "Broke off his horse's head" is reversed it becomes "He's a saucy f**ker". Not sure what else needs to be said here...
While recording the lyrics for the song "Groovy Tuesday" singer Pat Dinizio sang "design in blue" and everyone in the studio erupted in laughter. This little snippet was isolated and inserted at the song's end backwards. Producer Don Dixon did it as a joke and the band liked it.
RIP Pat Dinizio
If the line "How I wonder what you are" is put backwards you get "I wish there were no Allah" Allah means God in Arabic

If you play the song backwards, you can hear Mark saying "Hey, come over here!"
This song has a secret message that basically says, "What are you looking for? Turn the needle back and play this thing forward." ELO has made several backwards messages on their previous albums (none of them the rumored 'Christ infernal' message - it was never made), and the 1983 'Secret Messages' is peppered with just that. Other messages on this LP include counting numbers, cheering for the Birmingham Bluebirds Football (Soccer) Club, marching chants and a shout of BEATLES FOREVER! Not very Satanic, is it?
When the lyric that goes "Make a joke and I will sigh and you will laugh and I will cry" is played backwards, you can hear what sounds like "Is that you I saw dancing with the devil"
"All in all its all we are" in reverse is "I was nirvana"
In actuality, the backmasked "message" played over the verse is just the verse played backwards.
