27It's Like Metal

Metal is an extreme subgenre of rock music so there are similarities between metal and some other rock subgenres.

But there are also many differences and I wouldn't say that rock (in narrow sense) is like metal. - Metal_Treasure

38It plays a big part in music
39It's not at all satanic

Even in metal, most of the bands are not satanic. Only black metal is satanic but it's a very small part of metal music.

Yes, in metal one can often hear words like demons, devils, evil, hell, and so on, but usually metal bands don't glorify them.

Dave Mustaine of Megadeth said:

"I've never believed in singing about Satan and thinking he's cool because he's not". - Metal_Treasure

None of it is satanic! Rock is the only music that won God's approval!

Some rock is, primarily in metal. But most of it isn't. - RiverClanRocks

The devil is only used as a theme for song lyrics!
