Doom even managed to hide satanic imagery in its music

Mark of the beat

They say if you play Doom's soundtrack backwards, you can faintly make out the lyrics, "The devil is good, actually; the devil is good actually," in repetitive locust drones.

Well, not quite, but in a move that 30 years ago would have been dangerous sacrilege chronicled at the national level, there is some light satanic imagery nested within Doom's metal soundtrack. Of course in today's safe space millenial world it only registers as an "Easter egg." I just don't get why teens today think "666" is funny and racism is bad when back in my day the opposite was true and good.

Nevertheless, as YouTuber Nerd Sauce (via Reddit) has demonstrated through video, the track "Cyberdemon" manages to space out the numbers "666" with pentagrams in its frequencies.
