I heard it... and you can substitute anything in there and it could work

my friend showed me something about a poodle in it supposedly

Its the way the mind works. if someone TELLS you it sounds like satan when played backwards, your brain finds patterns in the nonsense and makes you beleive you are hearing it say **** about satan, if you had listened to it backwards without any prior knowledge about it being played backwards, you would probably hear something else, or nothing at all

It's almost like when you try to figure out what a screamer is saying in a song. When your told what it says you can hear it.

Exactly what I was going to say.

He might have inteded the lyrics to be heard as satan backwards, he might not have. I think the question we should be focusing on is, Who cares?

Looking for a new sig!

That would be extremely difficult to determine what a word would sound like backwards.

The power of suggestion. My teacher was telling us about this class she took in college. They played a song backwards for them. Everyone thought it just sounded like complete rubbish, and they didn't hear anything odd. The professor played the exact same song backwards again, but then told them to listen to the line "Smoke Marijuana". They began to hear it.

I'm sure if you play any song backwards, you can take any line, and associate it with something negative and people will think it was intentional.

If someone told you it sounded like the "if you're happy and you know it" song backwards and showed you the lyrics while playing it backwards you'd probably hear that too.

ive reversed it myself using on my comp. its kind garbled, and not as clear as somethings on the internet would have you believe. however, if you do listen with the satanic lyrics infront of you, it does seem to make a bit of sense.

Okay then, let's say I've got enough food to feed Yngwie Malmsteen for a day (about 6 months for regular people).

do you realize how hard it would be for zep to write a song that sounded coherent playing forwards but had an alternate coherent message backwards? doesnt make much sense.
