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.
Entries Beginning with D
At the end of Darling Nikki, there is a message that says Hello How Are You Doing? The Lord is coming.
"The Days of Pup and Taco," Lawndale
On the album "Beyond Bar B Que" at the end of the song it says "Looking for Satanic messages is bad for your needle." Lawndale is on SST Records and is a bit hard to find, but they are a great surf band.

Throughout most of the song played backwards, you can hear "Where's the donkey?"
The words are solely the Lord's Prayer being said backwards, a practice commonly used in the Black Mass and other demonic rites. However the band used it "purely for effect".
