Midnight (Iron Maiden) Easter Egg - Secret Message

If you play this song backwards there is a secret message, it reads:

HA-HA bet none of you find this. Why on Earth are you listening to Iron Maiden? They Suck!

After you hear that it just carries on with the song normally(but backwards of course)!

There was some backwards message that Iron Maiden used on their albums. "Piece of Mind", for example, album had one right before the song "Still Life". It was the drummer saying this. "Hmm, Hmmm, What ho sed de t'ing wid de t'ree bonce. Don't meddle wid t'ings you don't understand." Which is belch, and it means. "What ho said the monster with the three heads, don't meddle with things you don't understand." This message was mainly for the religious people who was giving them a hard time on "The Number of the Beast" album. Their also was one part on the "Powerslave" album on the song "Back in the Village". Listen to the part when they say "sixes all the way". If you have good hearing then in the background theirs someone else saying "six six six". Cool huh. Ohh yeah, by the way, Up the Irons!

"What ho sed de t'ing wid de t'ree bonce. Don't meddle wid t'ings you don't understand." is actually taken from the "Idi Amin" album by John Bird, It's roumoured that Idi Amin said he was visited by an alien and thats supposed to be "the Ting with the three bonces"

The song in question could be 2 MINUTES TO MIDNIGHT but why Maiden are putting anti-Iron's back masking on one of their records is beyond me.
