So all the impressionably young kids of the day bought every heavy metal album they could get their hands on so that they could listen to them backwards and hear wonderful phrases like “Worship Satan,” “Smoke Marijuana,” and “Kill Your Parents.”
Here is an old radio broadcast from 1981, in which evangelist Michael Mills fuels the insanity with an attack on Black Sabbath, The Beatles, Led Zeppelin, Judas Priest (who famously went to trial and won over bullshit accusations of backwards masking), and even Bow Wow Wow and Adam and the Ants.
