Everything About Fiction You Never Wanted to Know.

Detroit Metal City is an anime/manga series about the life of a Souichi Negishi, a young man who makes a living as a musician. He is very successful, but not in the genre of his dreams: while he loves to play relaxing music, his job demands that he play groove/thrash metal in the titular band as "Demon King Johannes Krauser II". Most of the story revolves around Negishi trying to balance being Krauser II, his love life, and his family responsibilities, with mostly hilarious results. The shows title is presumably a reference to the KISS song, "Detroit Rock City".

Not to be confused with that Metal City.
