* OlderThanTheyThink - the 19th century Italian violinist Niccolo Paganini was, if anything, the first example of this trope. Although many historians like calling piano virtuoso ''Creator/Franz Liszt'' as "the first rock star", Paganini nails this trope pretty spot-on. The virtuosity and showmanship he displayed during performances led people to claim that he had been under the devil's influence while playing. He played a mobile instrument, unlike Liszt. His gaunt face helped further this image.[[https://d3d00swyhr67nd.cloudfront.net/w1200h1200/WMR/WMR_RAOM_2005_2549.jpg His hair]] [[BreadEggsMilkSquick was long.]] He even played the ''guitar'' for crying out loud.

** It is interesting to note that in those days the violin was pretty much the equivalent of the electric guitar in modern times. It was sometimes associated with the devil (as in [[Creator/Goethe's]] [[Literature/Faust]]).

* In ''Film/TenaciousDInThePickOfDestiny'', the titular pick itself was crafted from one of the Devil's teeth, and was owned by some of the most famous guitar players in history. And then there's the movie's [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wJTYp1tvd3Q&fmt=18 final song]], a rock-off against Music/DaveGrohl as the Devil, who really does play lead guitar and drums.

** Expanded on in the sequel, "The Devil Comes Back to Georgia". Features more modern Country Rock from Travis Tritt, and "narration" by the late, great Johnny Cash, who was inherently hardcore. Actually fits the trope better than the original, where instead of it being clear the devil lost, the musical duel plays out the song with no resolution.

* ''TabletopGame/MageTheAwakening'': ''Grimoire of Grimoires'' has a band composed of varying flavors of Satanist (who are generally no more evil than most mages). Their entry has an album that is more or less deliberately invoking this trope, including back-masked occult secrets [[spoiler:combined with a spell that influences anyone listening to the record backward to rebel against authority]].

* Played with in ''TheConduit'' by Fang Jorgenson, host of the "Fang Bang Metal" radio show. He starts off as a stereotypical heavy metal DJ, but as the game's AlienInvasion proceeds, he interprets it with unrestrained glee as a demonic uprising.
