This Is What It Sounds Like When You Sing ‘Stairway To Heaven’ Backwards. The Result Is Better Than You Think

By 11.21.13

Led Zeppelin will turn you and your firstborn into Satan-loving freaks. So goes the rumor that if played backward, the lyrics to “Stairway to Heaven” say, “Here’s to my sweet Satan/The one whose little path would make me sad, whose power is Satan/He will give those with him 666/There was a little tool shed where he made us suffer, sad Satan,” to which Robert Plant once responded, “Who on Earth would have ever thought of doing that?”

As a sort-of spoof on the rumor, Dutch artist Jeroen Offerman spent three months learning how to sing the song in reverse, according to Dangerous Minds. He “then filmed himself…[reversing] the footage.” It’s pretty great.
