Daniels is angry because the song is "supposed to be a lighthearted novelty about a fiddling contest between a country boy and the devil and the devil always loses.

I do like the song and the devil does lose in it... but it's a boss fight (which I really don't like in Guitar Hero). Didn't Charlie Daniels give the okay to use his song in GH3? If so then he can't complain to much right?

he gave up (or lost) the rights, but I guess, just like anybody he is entitled to his opinion.

Well obviously they have to make him Boss-like or it would be too easy...=/
