During the Stranger Things season 4 finale, Eddie and Dustin attempted to guide the bats in the Upside Down away from Steve, Nancy, and Robin, who were attempting to approach Vecna’s lair. In what has now become one of the show’s most iconic moments, Eddie performs Metallica‘s legendary 1986 single “Master of Puppets” on the roof of his trailer to attract the bats.
Metallica’s thoughts about adding this song to the Stranger Things season 4 finale:
“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.”
During his appearances in a few magazines, Stranger Things star Joseph Quinn shares his favorite metal and rock music bands of all time:
- Black Sabbath
- Led Zeppelin
Stranger Things star Joseph Quinn revealed his Top Five Inspired Music Bands of All Time during his interviews with magazines. Here is the Joseph Quinn picks as follows:
“I have always liked some eighties nostalgia. A lot of the music made back then I really enjoy. I have been listening to Metallica a lot lately.”
Master of Puppets is the third studio album by the American heavy metal band Metallica, released by Elektra Records on March 3, 1986. It was the band’s final album to feature bassist Cliff Burton, who died in a bus accident in Sweden during the album’s promotional tour. It was recorded in Denmark at Sweet Silence Studios with producer Flemming Rasmussen.
“Master Of Puppets as well, Slayer… All that kind of stuff. That was my way into that whole world, really. Black Sabbath were my guys and Led Zeppelin too, but I guess they’re less metal.”
3. Black Sabbath
In a latest interview with Metal Hammer, Joseph Quinn pick the Black Sabbath as his favorite music band:
“Listened to Master Of Reality by Black Sabbath over and over. Master Of Puppets as well, Slayer…all that kind of stuff. That was my way into that whole world, really. Black Sabbath were my guys and Led Zeppelin too, but I guess they’re less metal.”
4. Led Zeppelin
In a latest interview with Metal Hammer, Joseph Quinn talked about Led Zeppelin:
“Master Of Puppets as well, Slayer…all that kind of stuff. That was my way into that whole world, really. Black Sabbath were my guys and Led Zeppelin too, but I guess they are less metal. Been woefully under-practiced in recent years. My dad played guitar and my granddad played for a time, so it’s something we’d do as a family. We are by no means virtuosos, but we all have a go.”
“Jimi Hendrix is an obvious one. I was always very enamored with him. Nirvana was my first proper band obsession – I was obsessed with Kurt Cobain and had all of his posters on my wall. It’s kind of cliché, but it’s true.
Not much. We all have moments where we feel vulnerable and maybe overcompensate. I joined my school two years late, so I guess there was maybe a little bit of overcompensation there. But I’ve been very lucky, I’ve always had friends and haven’t felt like too much of an outsider. But with all of my characters, if you don’t humanize them, you don’t care about them. And if people aren’t vulnerable and themselves and authentic, you tend to not really want to be around them. I think we’re far more drawn to someone that’s offensively imperfect than someone that’s constantly trying to be perfect and impressive.”
Bonus – Tears for Fears
“I have always liked some eighties nostalgia. A lot of the music made back then I really enjoy. Master of Puppets” by Metallica, and “Head Over Heels” by Tears for Fears (pop band).”
“‘You know that song in ‘Donnie Darko’? That’s a banger, love that song [‘Head Over Heels’ – Tears for Fears].”
