I remember growing up in the 80's, this whole satan backwards masking thing was really big. My next door neighbors became born again christians and would preach to my mother about the evil Proctor & Gamble logo and the evil backwards masking in music, in addition to why they put their daughters on strict diets (???).

The neighbor had a tape of some religion show where they played music backwards and interpreted it. On it were version of Prince's "when doves cry" which when played backwards is "I Sleep With My Mother" (at a young age I really didn't understand why this was bad) and ZZ Top's "Legs" translated to "Black Raindrops from Satan"

When I got home I chucked my beloved 45 of "when doves cry" into a remote corner, hoping to never find it again (I think I dug it out a few days later)

I remember being on the playground and ZZ Top's mantra was constantly running through my head

If you ever get a chance watch the film "The Stairway at St. Paul’s" by Jeroen Offerman
http://www.lff.org.uk/films_details.php?FilmID=237

"Inspired by rumours of satanic messages hidden in rock records, Offerman memorised and performed the vocal track of ‘Stairway to Heaven’ in its entirety, backwards. A continuous shot taped outside St Paul’s Cathedral is reversed to present the classic song in a skewed, but legitimate, new way."

I saw it at a CinemaTexas screening last year. Offerman was in the audience and after the showing, during Q&A he sang the last verse backwards for us. Amazing!

Jake

jay z backwards, this looks intentional b/c it's from clips of noise on the track.
