Metallica has released a statement on social media about having “Master of Puppets” featured on Netflix’s Stranger Things:
“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.”
The hit show takes place in the 1980s, and has brought success back to some music from that decade, including Kate Bush‘s “Running Up That Hill”. What it has done for Metallica‘s track? It’s now on Spotify’s Top 50 most played songs (As of now, it’s at number 17).
