Solving the problem of evil in the twenty-first century

Guitar Hero 3:Legends of Rock Boss Battle Against the Devil

Guitar Hero 3: Legends of Rock is a music video game developed by Nerversoft. The game was released in October 2001 for the PlayStation 2, PlayStation 3, Nintendo Wii and Xbox 360 gaming consoles. Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock is the first game in the series to feature a storyline for the Career mode, portrayed through animated cartoon scenes between venues. Your band starts as a neighborhood sensation, and after signing a recording contract with a shady music producer named Lou, gains worldwide fame, performing at venues around the world. However, when the band attempts to break the contract, Lou reveals himself to be the Devil, and their recording contract is actually a contract for their souls. Lou forces the band to play against him in hell, but the band is able to succeed, forcing Lou to break the contract. The band returns to the mortal world in flying motor cycles as Rock Legends.
The motif of the Devil as a trickster is present when Lou deceives the band with the contract to actually sell their souls. When the band is dragged to hell, the player gets a chance to fight the Devil Lou for the souls in a rock duel. The player has to literally bestow the Devil in a rock challenge to win the game. The song for the duel happens to be a rock version of The Devil Went down to Georgia by the Charlie Daniels band covered Steve Ouimette. Just like in the song The Devil Went down to Georgia the player has to win the musical contest in order to bestow the devil but instead of winning a golden fiddle in the game you get the band’s souls back. During the battle the player and Lou play to get as many notes as possible and the occasionally opportunity to ruin each other’s performance for a while by attacking each other and ruining the others guitar. If the player manages to land enough notes, the Devil Lou gives up and leaves the player to continue the song which happens to be the part in The Devil Went down to Georgia were Johnny defeats the devil and challenges him to come back. After the winning the duel, the Devil Lou falls into a fissure depeer into hell, while the band rises from hell as legends of rock.
