on Dio's Holy Diver there are some garbled noises in the fade out at the end. if you play those backward it says "I am the crucified" . When this album came out, I got the cassette and my auto-reverse tape deck would change directions but the head didn't click over to the other side of the tape, so we listened to a lot of stuff backward. not always on purpose.

A friend told me that if you play the Pokérap backwards it says "I love Satan I love Satan I love Satan".

...I can't say it'd surprise me.

my favourite backwards messages is from the first Soundgarden LP. track called 665 for obvious reasons.

Santa, I love you baby
My Christmas king
Santa, you're my king
I love you, Santa baby
Got what I need

i've read claims Cornell goes on to ask for a bike in the unintelligible stuff at the very end of the track following the reversed Santa blurb above. either way, far more hilarity than most of the 'devil' messages 'found' in most tracks.
i am the universe

Another pretty good one comes from the beginning of the They Might Be Giants song "I'll Sink Manhattan". If you play it backwards it says:

Thanks a lot guys, from the NYPD, we love you.

I distinctly heard Ozzy say, I can see you pissin" in Sweet Leaf. Sad but true story. I am a geek who has nothing better to do than play music backwards. o-0

Terence Hill, as recently confirmed during an interview to an Italian TV talk-show, was offered the role but rejected it because he considered it "too violent". Dustin Hoffman and John Travolta declined the role for the same reason. When Al Pacino was considered for the role of John Rambo, he turned it down when his request that Rambo be more of a madman was rejected.
Al Pacino = God

Of the 300 people tested, less than 10% claimed they could hear any messages. When a particular phrase was cited beforehand and the subjects prompted to listen for it, 90% were able to hear it, even when the phrase was not intentionally recorded. Vokey and Read concluded that if backmasking did indeed exist, it was ineffective. Their volunteers had trouble even noticing the backmasked phrase when the tape was played forward, were unable to judge the type of message (whether it was Christian, Satanic, or commercial) it contained, and were not led to behave in any certain way as a result of being "exposed" to the backmasked phrase. Due to this research, Vokey and Read were later called upon as expert witnesses in the above-mentioned trial involving the band Judas Priest."

Scientific studys show that if you were to play any song backwards theres a very likely chance you will hear a clash of words that sound remotely like "satan" or "666"...This is a illusion of mind, similar to that of ink block tests or shapes in the clowds, if you are expecting to hear a satanic message in a backwards recording, than you are more than likely to hear one...That being said there are still artists who intentionaly put backwards messages in their songs, many of them admit to doing this, and its usualy intended as either a joke, an artistic statement or a political statement, there are also many death and black metal bands who admit to diliberately putting hidden satanic messages in their songs, this includes Pantera and Darkthrone...There are also christian rock bands who admit to using backmasking for the purpose of getting people to repent and accept Jesus Christ as their personal savior.
Freddie was Zoroastrian. A Parsi. I think it is a matter of hearing things that you are programmed to hear by others. I don't buy into it. Just opinion, but, I listened to some, and, although some can be perceived as a reverse message, I think it is a matter of hearing what you want to hear.
