While Kate Bush’s “Running Up That Hill (A Deal With God)” has seen a massive surge in streams since the season four premiere of stranger things, another song was just as driving throughout the season. Metallica’s “Master Of Puppets” was also given new life this season, seeing its popularity surge after the Netflix original’s season finale.
For context, the finale features a moment in which Eddie Munson (Joseph Quinn) plays a guitar solo from Metallica’s hit. Since the finale, the original group have taken to TikTok to perform a duet alongside the guitar solo scene. “Eddie, this is for you!” says Metallica.
Earlier, Metallica took to Instagram to praise series creators Matt and Ross Duffer for their creative way of sharing “Master Of Puppets” with a new generation.
“The way the Duffer Brothers have incorporated music into Stranger Things has always been next level,” the band said in a caption, “so we were beyond thrilled that they not only included ‘Master of Puppets’ in the show, but to have such a crucial stage built around it.
stranger things is set to return to Netflix for a fifth and final season.
