Music Trivia -> Backwards Messages -> Index

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.

"Twinkle Twinkle Little Star," Jane Taylor
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
Mark
"We Are Number One," LazyTown
If you play "We Are Number One" backwards, the song title is "Now we're under you"
Yello Jello
"Whip It," Devo
If you play the song backwards, you can hear Mark saying "Hey, come over here!"
Yello Jello
"Secret Messages," Electric Light Orchestra
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?
Evil Man
"Paranoid," Black Sabbath
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"
James D
"All Apologies," Nirvana
"All in all its all we are" in reverse is "I was nirvana"
Tony
"Love Bites," Judas Priest
In actuality, the backmasked "message" played over the verse is just the verse played backwards.
Evan
"Prophet Song ," Queen
In the part that goes " now I know" over and over, backwards of course it says "won I won". The song has many tricks in it like that....I always wondered if there wasn't some competition going on between engineers or whomever.
Kurt Finguerra
"New God Flow (featuring) Pusha-T," Kanye West
The title of the song functions as a palindrome--that if you read it in reverse, it can say "Wolf Dog Went--Ah Sup". The chorus of the song in reverse is a back masked "Get off that. Gotta get off that. Get off that. Gotta get off that. Get off that. Money? Y'all sick on that sh*t".
Nosilla
"Stockholm Syndrome," Muse
In the chorus when played bacwards you can hear something like "You can't see me, we sneak off. I lost to love. Please ... save the night wind and high above, I lost to love. Sing, save"
Nurul
"Let It Go," Idina Menzel
In the song, if you play it backward, it clearly says "I'm standing with ammonia".
Rik
"I'm Blue," Eiffel 65
If you listen to it backwards, it sounds like "Hide the body, eat the body!"
Crafthead
"woC eht rehtorB yM," Mudhoney
The hidden final track on their "My Brother the Cow" album, is the entire album played backwards!
Danny Hates Dubstep
"Let It Go," Idina Menzel
If you play the line "can't get to me at all" backwards it is "Oh damn he must like me”
William
"Vogue," Madonna
When I hear "What are ya looking at?" Backwards it is "Tacky butting ass" This only happens if you play it in iTunes, I'm not sure what happens in the part in the beginning if you listen to it on the CD.
William
"Let it Go," Cast of "Frozen"
A curse word is heard when it is played backwards "Ooh damn he must like me" I don't know what lyric it replaces but it is true. Someone help if they can.
william
"Whip It," Devo
If you play the intro backwards, it sounds like Mark is saying "Hey, Hey, you, yeah you!" I don't know why it's there, but it is....
G
"Sweet Emotion," Aerosmith
The whole song just says F You Frank when played backwards.
G
"Imagine," John Lennon
When you play the line, "Imagine all the people," backwards, it sounds almost like, "The people all worship me."
OTTO
"Snowblind," Styx
At 1:08 (backwords), there is the start of what sounds like a backwards message, Incomprehendable (possible other language?) until 1:18 (backwards). It says "Satan is mercy,Save me Satan,Save Me now" Creepy,eh?
