Question: Can Satan sing? Does the devil have any musical talents? Can angels, in general, only praise God?
Answer: They devil is a VERY real spirit being who is powerful. He is God's adversary. In fact, the word Satan used in the Bible means adversary, enemy and accuser. We read the words of Jesus in John 12:31
"Now is the judgment of this world; now the ruler of this world will be cast out." (NKJV, unless otherwise noted.)
In 2Corinthians 4:4 the apostle Paul writes:
"whose minds the god of this age has blinded, who do not believe. lest the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine on them."
Paul emphasizes this point in Ephesians 2:2 :
"In which you once walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air (Satan), the spirit who now works in the sons of disobedience."
The devil influences what we hear from the air -- meaning what is broadcast over radio, television, movies - even the Internet - whether spoken, sung or suggested. He certainly does have musical talent, but it is a twisted to create music that is destructive (especially self-destructive), degrading, obscene and anything else that opposes God's way. Be careful what you hear or sing.
To answer your general question about angels, let's look at Job 38:
"Then the Lord answered Job out of the whirlwind and said: 'Who is this who darkens counsel By words without knowledge? Now prepare yourself like a man: I will question you, and you shall answer Me.
