Music Trivia -> Hidden Messages -> C

Aside from backwards messages (which is a seperate page), bands have found other interesting ways to hide things in their music or in their album covers.

Entries Beginning with C

"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.
"Cemetery Drive," My Chemical Romance
If you strip the song (taking out headphones/earbuds slightly and tilting it until you can no longer hear the lead vocals) you can only hear the back-up vocals. It says a message that makes surprising since when put together...
"Cherub Rock," The Smashing Pumpkins
Once, just after Billy says "Come line up for the big fight! Tonight!" Listen closely. You'll hear an alien-like noise. If you slow down the song it sounds like "Them!"
"Chickenfoot," Chickenfoot
They used some kind of special ink, I assume, because when you first take the album off a CD rack, everything on the front and back cover is black except for the logo and track numbers. Keep it in sunlight just a little while, though, and pictures of the band (as well as the track listing) become visible. Similarly, a small triangle on the inside cover eventually reveals the message, "Think Again," whatever that means.

"Come Together," The Beatles
During the chorus, it sounds like John Lennon sings "Shoot me.... Shoot me... Shoot me" Then Mark Chapman shot him.
"Concrete and Gold," Foo Fighters
Right at the end of the title track, which closes the CD - there is a few seconds of silence and then Dave Grohl shouts out, 'F*** you, Darrell!'. This seems to be a playful jab at Darrell Thorp, who helped record the album. He said that the Foo Fighters were fun to work with, so that indicates that little outburst is really just a studio joke.
Shout It Out Loud, Brotha!
