Despite the annoyance of some fans of Metallica because one of his songs was used in the Netflix series, stranger thingsthe members of the band have shown to be very happy to be part of the soundtrack and have even just made a brief collaboration with Joseph Quinn, the actor who played Eddie Munson.
For better or worse, the rage over “Master by Puppets” has made Metallica trending for several weeks now.
As expected, Netflix took advantage of the situation and joined the thrash metal band with the actor backstage at the Lollapalooza festivalin Chicago, United States.
Through its social networks, the streaming platform shared photos and a video where the coexistence of celebrities is observed. “You are taller than on TV”, Told him James Hetfield to Quinn during their meeting.
Likewise, Hetfield recognized that from the first season he became a big fan of the series produced by Netflix.
In addition to the friendly meeting, the metal band invited ‘Eddie Munson’ to have a “dove” with them, before going out to give his concert. Later, already on stage, when “Master of Puppets” began to play, the scene of Eddie playing the guitar in “UpsideDown” was projected on the giant screens to distract the henchmen of Neighbor.
It is worth mentioning that the band Metallica had mentioned that they were excited because Stranger Things had included one of his songs in this fourth season.
“The way The Duffer Brothers have incorporated music into Stranger Things has always been on another level”
Previously, nora feldermusic supervisor stranger things explained that the executive producers Matt Y Ross Duffer they intertwined the Metallica song into the script during pre-production.
“It was another one of those moments where it has to be this song. This part of the story was anticipated to be a pivotal and especially hair-raising scene in which Eddie heroically rose up to fight for his life. I think the brothers Duffer they felt that playing ‘Master of Puppets’ for the entire extended scene was the clear choice. No other song was discussed, and we jumped right into it,” he stated.
He also revealed that “in a way, the song and everything in the scene aligns with Eddie’s seemingly arrogant and nervous public persona.” And he finished by saying: “Eddie’s talismanic qualities of guitar and punk metal music help him reconnect with his well-kept traits of love, care and courage.”
So successful was choosing the theme of the iconic American band that, the leader of Metallica, James Hetfield, has stated that the song, from Metallica’s 1986 self-titled album, is prodigiously regarded as one of the band’s all-time classics. The track is very significant because it oscillates between smashing riffs and a progressive rock midsection. The band Metallica is a big fan of stranger things and all authorizations regarding the use of the song in said scene had to go directly through her, who signed its release.
Finally, it should be noted that the show that the band gave in Chicago included other classic songs such as “Enter Sandman” or “Nothing Else Matters” and others such as “The Memory Remains”, “Wherever I May Roam” or “Battery”.
