“Fight The Good Fight Of The Faith”

“In the early '70s, backmasking—or the practice of recording vocals and instruments backwards and then reinserting them into the forward mix of a song—was something a music savvy (and possibly stoned) Beatles fan might bring up. A decade later, it had become a cause célèbre for conservative religious leaders, school teachers, parents, and even politicians. Whether it was the reversed voice of Freddie Mercury declaring "it's fun to smoke marijuana" on "Another One Bites the Dust" or Styx imploring Satan to "move through our voices" on "Snowblind," there seemed to be mounting evidence that rock music was literally becoming a mouthpiece for the devil.”

- tekststykket herover beskriver i korte træk og ganske godt, hvad denne velskrevne og interessante artikel, ’The Fight to Save America From Satan's Subliminal Rock Messages’, fra magasinet Atlas Obscura handler om. 

God læselyst
