Because fundamentalists ran out of things to judge

I think that some people, especially religious fundamentalists, think rock n'roll is the devil's music because they thought that's what makes teens sexually aroused, addicted, violent, anti-social, or just plain wild.
If they can tell that rock music has something to do with the devil, they either listen to the music for any lyrics related to immoral behavior or play it backwards to find any "hidden" satanic or drug-related messages. Example: If you play The Eagles' "Hotel California" in reverse you'll hear references to Satan. Also, reverse Queen's "Another One Bites The Dust" and listen to "It's fun to smoke marijuana" in the chorus.
Some people charge that any type of rock music sometimes promote death. Emo music, for example, promotes self-harm in their lyrics and has lead to reports of teenage suicides.
It's ridiculous to hear that, as what you said, KISS (allegedly) stood or "Knights In Satan's Service". Rock stars may be accused by concerned parents or religious leaders, but they would still make music and attract fans. And don't forget: most rock music doesn't promote immoral behavior and is sometimes toned down by some music promoters.

Rock came from Blues which was originally called the Devils Music.

lots of reasons. first of all, most rock originated from blues back in the early days and blues was already known as "the devil's music." it seems that many of the things that made rock popular in the early days were provocative and offensive to the older generation (take elvis's pelvic thrust dance for example). i suppose that it was that sort of stigma that stuck with some people.Source(s): foolish assumptions

I think it stemmed from parents being appalled by the way Elvis' music made their children dance... in a "posessed" type way. Ever since then, parents have been saying that rock is "the Devil's music!".

A lot came from the Robert Johnson selling his soul legend.

When it first started back in the 50s people thought it would lead to sexual activity. In the sixties they thought it would lead to drugs and sexual activity.
