Metallica may be on track for a Kate Bush-style Gen Z revival after its song “Master of Puppets” was used in the season four finale of the Netflix show “Stranger Things.”
The song just hit No. 1 on the iTunes rock chart, some 36 years after it was originally released.
From the band:
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?
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.
