It been over a week since Netflix dropped the second half of Stranger Things Season 4 and unless you’ve been living under a rock, you would know that one of the most epic scenes in the Season 4 finale was Eddie Munson’s epic guitar cover of Metallica’s Master of Puppets.
The scene made Metalheads all over the world proud and these facts will make you stan it even more.
Joseph Quinn shreds a mean guitar solo. According to the Duffer brothers, they signed on actor Joseph Quinn without actually knowing if he played the guitar. The British actor was quite humble in saying that he was pretty good because his mad skills will put professionals to shame. Everyone was blown away by his talent.
As a matter of fact, he drove the Internet mad when they saw him rehearsing the piece.
It’s all in the family. Despite the fact that Joseph Quinn was a superb musician in his own right, the producers still had to make the scene as epic as possible, enlisting the expertise of Tye Trujillo, son of Metallica’s bassist Robert Trujillo to perform the master cut. His proud dad shared the news on his Instagram.
All fans are welcome. Just like Kate Bush’s epic renaissance, Metallica topped the Rock Charts again with Master of Puppets with a renewed interest in their music from new fans. As they welcome a new generation of Metalheads to their fold, they cautioned old fans not to gatekeep and be snobs. Also, they are not ashamed to fanboy over Eddie Munson and Stranger Things, paying homage to Hawkin’s misunderstood hero by doing a duet challenge on TikTok.
