* 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.

* ''Varg Vikernes'' criticizes 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.]]

* Brook from ''Manga/{{One Piece}}'' is a living skeleton who's also a skilled musician. While aboard the ship he plays sea chanties but during a brief interlude in which he's trapped on an island of cultists who've confused him for Satan, he composes darker, more rock-inspired music, including his hit song "Bone to be Wild".

* Jareth, the Goblin King in ''Film/{{Labyrinth}}'', was explicitly designed to essentially be {{Satan}} as an irresistibly alluring rock star. Boy, did they ever nail ''that'' one -- not least because he's played by Music/DavidBowie.

* On ''Series/GoodEats'', Alton tells a legend about a blues singer who made a DealWithTheDevil that helped him bring his music (and hot tamales) to the Mississippi Delta, in exchange for his soul. Alton then goes on to explain that at least the part about the hot tamales is a myth: that was not the result of a pact with {{Satan}} (or any other demonic force), but rather cultural exchange between Mexican and African-American laborers.
