* Music/{{Fireaxe}}'s 4 hour MagnumOpus ''Music/FoodForTheGods'' has several songs featuring the devil, but ''Welcome to my Realm'' deserves special mention. It's a ReligionRantSong sung by the Big Man Downstairs himself to the new arrivals using the screams of the damned as the [[EtherealChoir choir]].

The Devil is involved directly in rock and roll, whether it be grabbing a guitar, or giving a musician [[DealWithTheDevil some form of supernatural assistance]].

* 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 has been demonized as "Satanism" by the Church. [[JerkassHasAPoint He is actually right about this.]]

* DeadmanWonderland has [[EvilRedHead Genkaku]] who plays a v-guitar that doubles as a two machine guns. He even gets this line in the English dub. "DEATH IS ROCK AND ROLL!"

* 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 [[SatanPlaysLeadGuitar play lead guitar]] and drums.

* 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 Danish heavy metal band Mercyful Fate sang about Satan or the worship thereof in pretty much every other song on their first two albums, and its frontman Music/KingDiamond is openly a ([=LeVayan=]) Satanist. However, when the band split up and frontman King formed his own eponymous band, he phased this trope out in favor of occult-themed [[ConceptAlbum Concept Albums]].

* The final stage of ''[[GuitarHero Guitar Hero 3]]'' is a rock-off against a demon who may or may not be ''the'' Devil [[spoiler:but is your manager, [[LouisCypher Lou]]]], with your band's souls on the line. Set to a rock cover of "The Devil Went Down to Georgia", no less. (Charlie Daniels thinks this use of his song is a perversion of it, and finds ''Guitar Hero 3'''s content for Lou's Inferno to be shocking and inappropriate.

* ''WesternAnimation/ReBoot'': In the episode "Talent Night", Megabyte rocks the hell out, and then has a guitar duel with Bob. This scene wouldn't look too out of place in ''GuitarHero''--and keep in mind, [[OlderThanTheyThink this show predates]] ''GuitarHero'' [[OlderThanTheyThink by about a decade]].
