Nick Mason Discusses Hidden Message in Pink Floyd's 'The Wall:' 'Complete Nonsense'
Did you know that one of the tracks on Pink Floyd's "The Wall" contains a hidden message? Well, it does, and it was even discussed by drummer Nick Mason during a recent Sonic Reality interview.

During the chat, Nick explained that the band got the idea of a secret message from all the public drama at the time about rock songs containing hidden messages about various controversial topics.

"At the time, people were always looking for messages in albums," Mason explained (via Ultimate Classic Rock). "So we thought, 'Oh, well. We better do one.'"

If you thought that the message contains the meaning of life, you were wrong. It's located in the "Empty Spaces" track, all you have to do is play the tune backwards and at one point you'll hear the following words: "Congratulations. You have just discovered the secret message." Charming, isn't it?

Asked on whether the message has a deeper meaning, Nick responded with a chuckle, "It's complete nonsense."
