Seems like there is no such way for stopping this monster, except for one thing, which is Music. It becomes very clear to us when the demon targets Max. This is the time when the gang discovers that the only strategy to save her from his curse is to play Max her favorite song. Her friends then play the song “Running Up That Hill (A Deal With God)” by Kate Bush, which helps in protecting Max’s life. Following this, a Twitter trend started used by a user named tonypraysick, after which, “What’s your Vecna song?” became a trick to ask for someone’s favorite song.

This is revealed in the 4th episode of the May-released new season of Stranger Things, Vecna the monster, who kills people from the inside out by occupying and possessing their minds can be defeated if one listens to their favorite song. According to the show, music has a unique way of bringing down people in reality. And though Bush’s song is the one that protected Max from Vecna, the Vecna actor himself admitted that he’s also a fan of the 1985 track. He said that Placebo’s 2003 cover of it would also have defensive powers over him.
