Music Trivia -> Backwards Messages -> D

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

"Dance, Dance," Fall Out Boy
The whisper before the first chorus says "Joe Trohman is lame". Joe Trohman is the band's guitarist.
"Darling Nikki," Prince
At the end of Darling Nikki, there is a message that says Hello How Are You Doing? The Lord is coming.
Tim Hall
"The Days Of Pup ande 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.
Wade Brock
"Detour Thru Your Mind," B-52's
All the lyrics are nonsensical, but the end there's a backwards message and if you play the song backwards, It's 'I buried my parakeet in the backyard. Oh no! You're playing the record backwards! Watch out, you might ruin the needle'.
Paul Warren
"Ding Fries Are Done," Peter Griffin of "Family Guy"
You can hear "Where's that f***in' hamster?" in parts of the song played backwards.
"Ding Fries Are Done," Peter Griffin of "Family Guy"
Throughout most of the song played backwards, you can hear "Where's the donkey?"
"Dinner at Deviant's Palace," Cradle of Filth
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".
A Stranger
"Don't Stop," The Stone Roses
If you play this song backwards you can make out some lyrics from the previous song on the album, "Waterfall". This is because the song "Don't Stop" uses the backing track of "Waterfall" reversed.
A Stranger
"Don't Stop The Music," Rihanna
When you play most of the song backwards, you can hear the Spanish word for Jesus.
"Don't Try Suicide," Queen
During this 1980 B-side, if you listen to it backwards you hear drug-related things like "have a snort", "do a snort" and "I must have my speed". Odd, because the A-side was Another One Bites The Dust, which of course has drug-related messages...
