No, the Apollo 10 Astronauts Didn't Hear 'Alien Music' Behind the Moon - by Jeffrey Kluger/ Ideas/ Space/ Time/ time.com

"An Internet rumor turns out not to be true.

There are two ways to try to get attention on the science blogs and in the space nerd circuit: One, claim that there’s a deep, unexplained secret NASA is keeping about an alien encounter during the Apollo era. Or two, don’t claim that there’s a deep, unexplained secret NASA is keeping about an alien encounter during the Apollo era. Which do you think gets you more attention?..."

But we do know that Stanley Kubrick helped NASA fake the lunar landings.
I read that on the internet, so it must be true. ;)

NASA Releases Recording of Strange 'Space Music' Heard by Apollo 10 Astronauts - by Sophie Jamieson/ Science/ Space/ The Telegraph/ telegraph.co.uk

"The astronauts heard the strange 'whistling sound' when they were orbiting the moon.

When three astronauts orbiting the moon noticed a strange “whistling sound” in outer space, they thought they were imagining things.

In fact, the men were so perplexed they worried about whether or not they should tell their bosses, for fear they would be laughed at and not allowed to go on future missions.

Now nearly 50 years later, the strange “space music” has been shared with the public for the first time.

Nasa has released the sounds heard in May 1969 by the trio of Apollo 10 astronauts as they circled the moon.

The story behind the unusual whistling noises emerged in a programme on Discovery, as part of a series called Nasa’s Unexplained Files..."

About That 'Spacey Music' Astrnauts Supposedly Heard Behind the Moon - by Eric Mack/ C/Net/ Sci-Tech/ cnet.com

"Sorry, but Apollo 10 astronauts didn't meet Pink Floyd or any extraterrestrial musicians when they took a lap around the moon in 1969.

If you pay attention to what's trending online, you might think NASA recently declassified audio and transcripts from Apollo 10 -- the "dress rehearsal" for the first moon landing a few months later -- that show the astronauts heard crazy alien music while they were out of radio contact traveling behind the moon and then decided never to speak of what they heard.

This story smelled fishy to me when I first saw it Saturday, and within about 30 seconds of searching, I was able to find this "newly uncovered" transcript online (PDF link), on NASA's history site, where it's been sitting in plain view since at least 2008. It's not a transcript of the radio transmission between the three astronauts and mission control on Earth like we're used to hearing. Rather, it's a transcription of a recorder that's mounted inside the command capsule, recording all the crew's interactions with each other and mission control.

The transcript does mention hearing "whistling sounds" the crew describes as "outer spacey" music, and at one point they discuss whether to mention it to anyone. Astronaut John W. Young does say "nobody will believe us" about the music. This part in particular has been cited by some of the more conspiratorial-minded corners of the web for several years now as evidence of a government cover-up. The story went viral over the weekend because of a partial clip from an upcoming Science Channel show that emphasizes the mysteriousness of the sounds and claims that the tape and transcript were hidden from the public for 40 years..."
