Did you know that if you play "Stairway to Heaven" backwards, you can hear Robert Plant talking about making a deal with the devil and encouraging you to do the same? It's true!...well...not really, but certain groups wanted you to believe that for a time. They called this process backmasking (or back masking). And it wasn't just Led Zep; many groups were accused of hiding satanic messages in their music using this technique. Groups accused include The Beatles, Queen, Judas Priest, AC/DC and even Weird Al! And some of them were actually guilty! Kinda.
Join Eric and his guest cohost, Brian Toney, as they talk about the history of backmasking from how it started innocently as a studio trick pioneered by non other than John Lennon all the way up to the Satanic Panic of the 1980's. Was there any truth to the accusations? Is such a technique even possible to master? Can our subconscious be affected by hearing backward messages? Find out in this rocking episode of Spooky A S!
