Stranger Things: Eddie Munson Actor Joseph Quinn Meets Metallica!

Eddie Munson would be scared right now. Much like Kate Bush Running up that hill was prominently featured in the first volume of the fourth season of Stranger Things, the finale used Metallica’s Master of Puppets to great effect. Netflix has released a video showing Eddie Munson actor Joseph Quinn meeting Metallica and getting to jam with them.

That Stranger Things finale found Eddie Munson (Joseph Quinn) and Dustin (Gaten Matarazzo) used as bait in the Upside-Down to distract Vecna’s demo bats and give Nancy (Natalia Dyer), Steve (Joe Keery) and Robin (Maya Hawke) enough time to to sneak into the villain’s lair. The scene found Eddie taking out his guitar and blasting the Master of Puppets to help save the day. Metallica took it Instagram to respond to the use of their iconic song on Stranger Things.

The way The Duffer Brothers have incorporated music into Stranger Things has always been next level, so we were blown away that they not only included “Master of Puppets” in the show, but to have such a pivotal scene built around it . We were all excited 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 people were able to guess the song just by looking at some few seconds of Joseph Quinn’s hands in the trailer!! How freaking cool is that?

Metallica continued, “It’s an incredible honor to be such a big part of Eddie’s journey and to once again be in the company of all the other amazing artists featured in the show.Master of Puppets was originally released in 1986, but its popularity has exploded after its use on Stranger Things, even entering the US and UK charts. Metallica’s Lars Ulrich has said that it’s all a bit of a mind f**k. “[It shows you] the power of film, the power of television, the power of fair culture,Ulrich said. “And of course, any opportunity you get to turn new kids or younger kids on to music, that can be a gateway to discovering what it is—whether it’s harder rock or different stuff, whatever’s on their radar, super cool But this is just crazy. It’s a little hard to fully understand, but it’s amazing. So we are very psyched.
