* VargVikernes critizises this trope on his website. He argues that BlackMetal is not, nor can ever have been Satanic, because "Satanism", as it were, has never existed. Every recorded case of Satanism or Devil Worship before modern times has actually been genuine Pagan practices which have been demonized as "Satanism" by the Church. [[JerkassHasAPoint He is actually right about this.]]

* Inverted in a ''Series/SaturdayNightLive'' sketch, where Music/GarthBrooks sells his soul to the Devil (Will Ferrel) for a hit song, but it turns out the Devil's songs (and guitar skills) suck, coming up with such gems as "Fred's Got Slacks." Interestingly, though, the Devil's sub-par skills end up inspiring a song, so he wound up helping after all.

The Prince of Darkness struggles to get his guitar in tune, and the best songs he has to offer are banal novelties like "Fred's Got Slacks." Slacks," or just Smash Mouth songs with reworked lyrics.

* Charlie Daniels' song "The Devil Went Down to Georgia" is one of the straightest examples, except that it's not rock guitar, but country fiddle playing.
** Remarkably, it nevertheless rocks, ''hard''.

* The 1986 film ''[=Crossroads=]'', starring Ralph Macchio, an [[MagicalNegro old black man]], and a hot chick, is built on the legend of Music/RobertJohnson. The old man sold his soul for the ability to play harmonica; to get him out of the deal, Macchio goes double-or-nothing in a guitar duel against the devil's champion (played by Music/SteveVai). Involves a lot of awesome music.

* Subverted in ''Rock 'n' Roll Nightmare''. A heavy metal band goes to practice at a farmhouse where the family that once lived in it died mysteriously years before. The Devil takes an interest, and kills the band off one member at a time... [[spoiler:and then the lead singer, John Triton, reveals the truth. He's the ''Archangel'' Triton, the band was an illusion (modeled after horror film characters - Satan angrily comments that he should have recognized the bass player), and he's come to avenge the family that was killed. Yes, folks, it's ''Rock Me, Gabriel''!]]

* In the video for his song, "This Town", Music/ElvisCostello plays the Devil, who makes a game-show out of tempting people into sin.

** The Adam Ezra Group adapted Daniels' song into "The Devil Came Up to Boston", which not only plays up every HollywoodNewEngland stereotype imaginable, but is a subversion in that it makes the Devil [[TheDevilIsALoser significantly less impressive]]; instead of a golden fiddle like the original, he tempts a young man into a fiddling contest with a [[ComicallySmallBribe lotto scratchcard and a pack of cigarettes]]... and he still loses.
