The final episode of Netflix series Stranger Things season 4 was a huge hit among fans. When the last two episodes were released on July 1, several scenes in the series caught the attention of viewers.
The series first boosted the popularity of Kate Bush’s Running Up That Hill. And now that the last two episodes of Season 4 have aired, another song is gaining popularity: Metallica’s Master of Puppets, performed by the heroic Eddie Munson in the Upside Down. The band has now spoken out publicly about using their hit song.
Metallica, the legendary rock band, took to Instagram on Tuesday and shared a video of Eddie Munson performing upside down to distract the bats from his friends. They also praised actor Joseph Quinn, who played “Hellfire Club” leader Eddie Munson and shredded on the guitar.
“The way The Duffer Brothers have incorporated music into Stranger Things has always been next level, so we were more than psychic for them to not just include “Master of Puppets” in the show, but to have such a crucial scene to build around it. We were all excited to see the end result and when we did we were completely blown away… it’s done so extremely well, so much so that some people could guess the song by a few seconds of Joseph Quinn’s hands in the trailer!! How crazy cool is that?” wrote the band.
“It’s an incredible honor to be such a big part of Eddie’s journey and to once again be company with all the other great artists featured on the show,” the post continued.
The video has been viewed more than 2.4 million times in just one day, leaving fans speechless. Users have flooded the comment section with praise for both the music and the performance.
“Best scene ever,” wrote one user.
While another said, “Thank you for making your music a part of this scene.”
A third user wrote: “I was on my bed screaming throughout this scene!!!!!! Hell Yes!!!”
