Back Masking

Back Masking? Yeah I know that I am late now posting this 'cause it aroused before I was born >.<

I first realized it when I and my classmates talked about it. I only know that when you play the song backwards, it has other meaning, but i didn't know that they called it Back Masking. wew. Noob Girl.

Anyway, BackMasking, on what I learned from them (my classmates), is playing a song backwards and catch the other meaning of it. Majority of the Backmasked songs is satanic, my classmate said that the songwriter, while writing the specific song, is possessed (you know). But there are some Christian Song that when you backmask, it has other meaning too: praising and worshiping God :)

I'll give you a sample of a backmasked video courtesy of YouTube.com

Backmasking (also known as backward masking) is a recording technique in which a sound or message is recorded backward onto a track that is meant to be played forward. Backmasking is a deliberate process, whereas a message found through phonetic reversal may be unintentional.

Backmasking was popularized by The Beatles, who used backward vocals and instrumentation on their 1966 album Revolver. Artists have since used backmasking for artistic, comedic, and satiric effect, on both analog and digital recordings. The technique has also been used to censor words or phrases for "clean" releases of songs.

Backmasking has been a controversial topic in the United States since the 1980s, when allegations from Christian groups of its use for Satanic purposes were made against prominent rock musicians, leading to record-burning protests and proposed anti-backmasking legislation by state and federal governments. Whether backmasked messages exist is in debate, as is whether backmasking can be used subliminally to affect listeners.
