Metallica are “beyond psyched” and “blown away” that the popular Netflix series, Stranger Things, used their song during a pivotal moment of the Season four finale.
The show featured Metallica’s hit, “Master Of Puppets,” from their 1986 album of the same name, for a moment in the show where Eddie Munson shredded on guitar to the rock hit to attract a swarm of demonic bats towards hims so that his friends Nancy, Steve and Robin could enter villain Vecna’s lair undetected.
The award-winning rock group took to social media on Tuesday (July 5) to react to the successful Netflix series using their song, “Master Of Puppets,” within the show.
“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,” the band collectively wrote.
Metallica continued, “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?”
The band concluded their statement by saying, “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.”
Stranger Things account commented on their post saying, “MOST. METAL. EVER. 🤘♥️”
The show enlisted Tye Trujillo, son of Metallica bassist Rob Trujillo, with some help with Kirk Hammett to record the solo on the show.
