Latest Entries

The 20 most recent entries are listed below. There are 129 entries in this section.

"Fire on High," Electric Light Orchestra
The beginning of the song contains the backwards message "The music is reversible, but time is not. Turn back, turn back, turn back, turn back" underscored by some twilight zone-esque music.
"Overnight Sensation (Hit Record)," Raspberries
After the song completely fades out, you can hear the intro to "Go All The Way" very low. This is on the vinyl LP "Starting Over" and not on the CD.
Gregory Hulak
"Cannonball," Skylar Grey featuring X Ambassadors
The "foreign chant" you can hear between where Skylar sings has been suspected for "eat horses**t!". It is "Be your shield". You may need to reverse to hear it.
"Hailies Song," Eminem
In the rap part, the line "So glad her mom didn't wanter" is censored. Some misthought it as "abort her". If you reverse the part you clearly hear want her.
"Weezer (The Green Album)," Weezer
Weezer's 2001 album often known as The Green Album is home to a perculiar hidden message. If you open up the CD case and look behind the CD tray (to see the rear back cover) and look down the spine to the right, you will find the message 'No'. This might sound weird, but perhaps not when I tell you Radiohead's OK Computer has a message in the same place that reads "I like you. I like you. You are a wonderful person. I'm full of enthusiasm. I'm going places. I'll be happy to help you. I am an important person, would you like to come home with me?". The Green Album is answering OK Computer's question, basically.
"Everlong," Foo Fighters
In the middle of the song, you can hear the following being whispered: "So Dad would take the Sundays off, and that's the only time he could ever get any rest. And so, because we were loud on Sundays, he'd make us hold his construction boots over our head, till we'd sleep. And they were really heavy boots and I'd used to say "Dad, come on, please," and, like, start crying, 'cause they're too heavy."
"Mood Rings," Relient K
After the song ends, Matt Thiessen can be heard in the background saying "That was terrible".(in reference to the closing lyric: "The complex infrastructure known as the female mind").
Jonathan S.
After the last listed track ("The Pendulum's Promise") there is silence for a few minutes, then Violent J and Shaggy 2 Dope have a "putdown" contest, then there's a track possibly named "Right Here". Then there's a recorded phone conversation.
Aladdin N. Sayne
"Dangerous," Roxette
This song is a single from the duo's smash hit album Look Sharp! Right at the end of the song as it's fading out, if you listen carefully, you'll hear Per Gessle saying, "Due to the exceptional weakness of this song, play loud". Funny.
"Live Life Loud," Hawk Nelson
About 1 minute and 15 seconds into the song, you can hear someone say "Turn that music down or I'm calling the police"
"To This Day," K's Choice
In track 6, To This Day, on K's Choice's second album, Paradise in Me, David Haas recites an excerpt from Julio Cortazar's novel Hopscotch. And if you listen you can understand what he says. But about a 1 1/2 minutes from the end he starts speaking again. I cannot understand what he says, though.
"The Power of Equality," Red Hot Chili Peppers
In the beginning of the song, you can hear Anthony Kiedis say "Hey batter batter" a few times, followed by him saying "Swing", leading into the first verse.
"Fireproof," Pillar
In the beginning of the Pillar song "Fireproof", you can hear Rob Beckley say "A, E, I, O, U, sometimes Y"
"Hot For Teacher," Van Halen
On the "1984" album right after that song is over you will hear somebody say,"Wuhf!" or something that sounds like that.
Got It Bad, Got It Bad, Got It Bad
"The Wall," Pink Floyd
If you listen very quietly at the very start of the first track "In The Flesh?", you hear the words "we came in..". Then, if you listen at the very ened of the last track "Outside the Wall" you hear the words "isn't this where?". This is done so if you play the album again straight away, the words become a question, "Isn't this where we came in?". It is also a reference to the fact the last track on the album is similar to the first track on the album, as if the Wall story started all over again.
"Rattle and Hum," U2
I've already posted about the hidden message on How to Dismantle an Atomic Bomb, but on the original LP of Rattle and Hum there is a hiden message. Look on the inner groove on side 1, you will find the words etched "We Love You A.L.K.", ALK is Anne Louise Kelly, the band's production manager.
"Gangster Trippin'," Fatboy Slim
The background voices that play a few times at the start of the song actually "we're gonna kick that gangster s**t"
"Sexual Healing," Marvin Gaye
If you turn your volume really loud, when the song fades out, you can hear "Please don't procrastinate, it's not good to masturbate …"
"She's Got Nothing On (But the Radio)," Roxette
Now here's a shocking one. At the beginning, you can hear Per Gessle say what sounds very much like, "What the f**k?" And at the end, he's moaning... exactly what was happening in that studio? I am suspicious of these two.
"The Road to Mandalay," Robbie Williams
(Note this only applies to the version which appeares on the album Sing When You're Winning). On this song, everything seems fine. But after the song has "finished", leave the song playing for another 25 minutes and you will hear Robbie say "No, i'm not doing one on this album". This was a reference to people that possibly were expecting a hidden track to fulfill that slot.
