* IdiotBall: [[spoiler: JB agrees to put KG up as a bet for their rock-off with the devil...despite the Devil having said that he literally CANNOT decline a rock-off challenge.]]
** Averted: [[spoiler: In order to send Satan back to hell from whence he came. Jables HAD to strike a deal with him of some sort. Souls are probably the only thing The Devil would substantially benefit from (thus making it a deal), and he was about to take both their souls anyway if they lost. Plus it's quite likely that Satan, being who he is, wouldn't have let an opportunity like this slide by without specifically defining a Rock-Off as having some sort of stakes involved.]]

* BrokenAesop: The film starts off with Jables being ranted at by his fundamentalist Christian dad, who claims that rock and roll is evil and the work of Satan, to which JB says it's "not the Devil's work, it's magical and rad". The rest of the movie is spent searching for a pick that makes you an awesome rock star through the power of the Devil.
** There's even a line in the credits song that states that rock techniques were developed in hell.

* MushroomSamba: When Jables gets lost out in the woods, he survives by eating unidentified mushrooms, which results in this trope.
** Specifically, he has a trip wherein he becomes a baby sasquatch, and then begins singing about how his dad is awesome and shall protect him.
* MythologyGag: [[spoiler:The D are met by Satan and have to play a song to save their lives (and the world).]] After surviving, they are unable to remember the kickass tune they played, so they try to rewrite it from scratch. Mayhaps a ''Tribute'' to that song?
