Default Re: Song lyrics and other cloaked references

Some of us old folks will remember back in the day when Ozzy was constantly accused of subliminal messages in his songs (whether played backwards or whatever). He was even taken to court over this.

Jay Leno quipped in a monolouge to the effect, "Listen to the content of his songs I wonder what subliminal messages are hidden. Stay in school? Eat your vegatables? Listen to your parents?"

I think if you play "Stairway to Heaven" backwards you can hear some satanic stuff too, but I'm pretty sure it's completely coincidental and wasn't intentionally done.
Yeah, I've heard it, but it's a stretch to say it actually says that.

I would say beyond a doubt that the most misunderstood cloaked lyric of all time was "In The Garden Of Eden" by Iron Butterfly.

I have an extensive collection of old Blues songs from the 1930s and upwards that have many cloaked lyrics that I have never figured out either.
I listen to these songs over and over and I can't fully understand the true meanings of the words.

Just about any rock record played backwards, and/or way slowed down, sounds evil. And people just start to read into the gibberish they hear.

Yup, he was taken to court over the song "Suicide Solution". The song is supposed to be about the evils of alcoholism, but parents of a teen who committed suicide sued Ozzy claiming the song told it's listeners to kill themselves. Ozzy won, as the teen in question had suffered clinical depression, and the record had sold millions of copies yet no one else killed themselves over it.

Judas Priest faced a similar lawsuit several years later, in which they also prevailed.
