Quinn had previously said in an interview that he had decided to learn the track, after seeing it on the screenplay.
“On the day, me and Gaten [Matarazzo] just got up on top of the camper van, and just got into it”, he said.
“I played most of it. We got a kind of black belt metal guitarist to come in and do the solo, because I’m a human being. It was very fun”.
‘Master Of Puppets’
Metallica had previously spoken of their delight that the Netflix show was using their track.
Joseph Quinn’s character Eddie Munson plays this track during season 4, to distract demonic bats protecting the lair of main villain Vecna played by Jamie Campbell Bower.
“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?”, Metallica said in a statement.
“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”.
Stranger Things has also played a big part in the resurgence of Kate Bush’s 1985 single, ‘Running Up The Hill’. Find out more on this here.
