Metallica Played Master of Puppets Alongside Footage of Eddie Munson in Stranger Things
During Stranger Things’ fourth season, the beloved Eddie Munson quickly became a fan favorite in no small part thanks to his passionate performance of Metallica’s “Master of Puppets.” And now, Metallica has honored the show by giving fans the closest possible thing to a live Eddie Munson concert.
Last night, during Metallica’s headlining performance at Lollapalooza, the band gave a shoutout to Stranger Things by playing a clip of Munson shredding along as they played “Master of Puppets.”

Since the premiere of Stranger Things’ fourth season, the music from the show has become relatively iconic. Kate Bush, whose song “Running Up That Hill” also appeared in the season, thanked fans after her song returned to charts nearly 40 years after its initial release. The season itself has also become wildly successful, recently surpassing 1 billion hours streamed.
We gave Season 4, Part 2 a 9 in our review, saying the lengthy finale packs in “just about everything a Stranger Things fan could ask for.”
