Queen... Lyrical Geniuses or Gay Potheads?


There was a time in the 80's where people believed that "the evil rock music" (such as was produced by Queen, Led Zeppelin, the Who, and the like) contained hidden messages when played backwards. The whole absurdity of this, of course, is that the music was intended to be played forward and the only people who heard the "hidden messages" were those that were playing the songs backwards with the intention of hearing those "hidden message." It's completely unrealistic to believe that anybody would write lyrics with the intent, that when played backwards, would convince the listener to "accept Satan", or "do drugs", or "join the Pepsi generation." Nevertheless, here's new evidence (actually I'm sure it's really old evidence) that Queen may have not been the lyrical geniuses that we all have grown to know and love, and instead are just a bunch of hippies trying to convince us all to "do the pot."

Listen Here to Queen's message.

Well, let me just say that I've never believed in this hogwash. I've always felt it's just some crazy people trying to bamboozle us with their paranoid tom-foolery.

That is... until today. This next clip undoubtedly confirms that the "play-it-backwards-for-hidden-message" theory is, in fact, real! Remember Britney back in the days when she was actually do-able? When you actually wanted to know what her vagina looked like? Before the days of Federline, shaved heads, barefoot public bathrooms, drunken rambling fits, and neglectful parenting? You know... the days of Britney's innocence?
