Season Four of Netflix’s Stranger Things incorporated Kate Bush’s classic hit song “Running Up That Hill,” and it became an instant hit again. Fans loved the music and the inclusion of the song in the series was a success. Subsequently, the second part of the fourth season of the show featured Metallica’s 1986 single song “Master of Puppets”.
And once again, like Kate Bush’s song, this song too was loved by fans and became quite popular. Metallica then released a statement expressing their joy at this.
Metallica Responds to Their Song Reaching Dizzying Heights After Inclusion In Stranger Things
The band expressed enthusiasm for their song being featured in the show. They stated in an Instagram post:
“The way the Duffer Brothers have incorporated music into Stranger Things has always been next level, so we were beyond psyched for them to not only include ‘Master of Puppets’ in the show, but to have such a pivotal scene built around it,” “We were all stoked to see the final result and when we did we were totally blown away… it’s so extremely well done, so much so, that some folks were able to guess the song just by seeing a few seconds of Joseph Quinn’s hands in the trailer!! How crazy cool is that?”
They then shared their gratitude for being a part of the show and wrote: “It’s an incredible honor to be such a big part of Eddie’s journey and to once again be keeping company with all of the other amazing artists featured in the show,”

Actor Joseph Quinn who plays Munson in the show shared his experience of filming the popular sequence with Entertainment Weekly. He said:
“We had a backing track and I was playing along with it,” he said. “I wouldn’t wanna mess with what they’ve already got, but it was very useful to be able to play along character-wise. It’s a pretty adolescent fantasy to be a rock star, isn’t it? I felt like one for a night. It was great having Gaten [Matarazzo] up there with me. They really turned it up when they played ‘Master of Puppets’ and the whole crew were there. It was the first time that everyone felt like they were seeing live music—I say ‘live music’—since the pandemic. So it felt like a real celebration.”
All in all, the inclusion of these classic hit songs in the series has added yet another element of brilliance to the amazing show. Fans love it and the artists feel honored. This adds yet another feather in the cap for Netflix’s Stranger Things!
Stranger Things can be streamed on Netflix.
