Songs With Supposed Backwards Satanic Messages

It's a recording trick known as backmasking, whereby words and phrases are reversed and inserted into songs, so that when played backwards the secret messages with hidden meanings can be heard. Backmasking was "exposed" by right-wing Christian groups in the '60s, '70s, and '80s as an attempt by major recording artists to convert unwitting people to the Devil, insisting that the reversed lyrics seeped into a person's subconscious and altered their minds (also known as subliminal messaging, which doesn't at all work like that).

Here are notable examples of music with backwards lyrics, most of which are purely imagined, though some are real and intentionally inserted into the songs.
