2. Muse - The Small Print
According to the Muse Supermassive Wiki, this track from 2003's Absolution album is a re-telling of the classic story of Faust by Goethe… but from the point of view of Satan, who makes a diabolic deal with the titular Student Of Prague. "Be my slave to the grave / I'm the priest God never paid."
