These are INTENTIONAL messages that groups have recorded and placed in their songs. This differs from backwards masking in which
bands supposedly sing a song in a special way so that when played backwards a hidden message appears.

"Amish Paradise," Weird All Yankovic
When you play this parody song backwards, you can hear in part of it "You're a wise little muffin."
"Another 1 Bites the Dust/Another 1 Rides the Bus," Queen / Weird Al
Backwards in the chorus of the Queen version, you're supposed to hear "decide to smoke marijuana" or "you're supposed to smoke marijuana." In the Wierd Al version, same passage, (also backwards) you're supposed to hear "someone's on marijuana."
"Another One Bites The Dust," Queen
Forwards: Another one bites the dust Backwards: It's fun to smoke marijuna
This is a couple of backwards (cover art) messages from the Grateful Dead. The album "American Beauty" says "American Reality" if you look at it. The album "Aoxamoxa" the lettering spelling the "Grateful Dead" says "We Ate The Acid" in a mirror.
In the song "Arise" by Amebix there is a backwards message saying "Listen to Hawkwind, Motorhead, smoke some glue....".
"Assult & Battery (The Golden Void)," Hawkwind
