| "Evil Eye" (album)
| "She's giving me the evil eye, suck Satan's cock."
| Said at the beginning of the song. Lead singer Tim Wheelerremarked that "Yeah, we did hide a secret message in 'Evil Eye', but it's not that bad..."
| At the Drive-In
| "300 MHz" (EP)
| "...your enamel / made no reflection in our mirror / coughing up the coffins / cotton candy coated teeth / these pockets were clinching all filled with teeth / amnesia proletariat / in the unlikely event / that sarcasm is an unfitting dress / amnesia proletariat / amnesia proletariat / amnesia / coughing up the coffins / cotton candy coated teeth / these pockets were clinching / all filled with teeth / sharpened on the fucking hides of men..."
| Heard by reversing the song starting at the 94-second mark. The message is composed of rearranged verses from earlier in the song.
| The B-52's
| "Detour Thru Your Mind" (album)
| "I buried my parakeet in the backyard. Oh no, you're playing the record backwards. Watch out, you might ruin your needle."
| At the end of the track. May poke fun at psychedelia, or at the backmasking controversy.
| The Beatles
| "...the sun shines. Raaain. When the rain comes, they run and hide their heads"
| Gibberish occurs during the fade out (accompanying music is not reversed), actually sections of the vocal melody. This was one of the earliest instances of backmasking. The deliberate reversal was repeatedly acknowledged by John Lennon and others.
| "Free as a Bird"(album)
| "Turned out nice again."
| Can be heard during the song's fade-out. Was commented upon by many newspapers after the album's release in 1995 and the discovery of the message by BBC Radio Five Live producer Simon Clifford. Paul McCartney stated that, "We even put one of those spoof backwards recordings on the end of the single for a laugh, to give all those Beatles nuts something to do."
| "Revolution 9" (album)
| "Turn me on dead man."
| A debated message which fueled the Paul is Dead rumor. SeeBackmasking.
| "Loser" (album)
| "Soy un perdedor. I'm a loser, baby, so why don't you kill me"(entire chorus reversed)

| Bloodhound Gang
| "Lift Your Head Up High (and Blow Your Brains Out)" (album)
| "Devil child will wake up and eat Chef Boyardee Beefaroni"
