Metallica and Stranger Things fans unite! On Friday, Metallica's official TikTok account posted a video of the band members dueting with Stranger Things' Eddie Munson (Joseph Quinn) on "Master of Puppets," a song used in a critical moment of the Season 4 finale.
In the video, which has amassed nearly 3 million views on TikTok, Metallica can be seen on the left side of the screen wearing Hellfire Club shirts and playing along to their 1986 song. Meanwhile, on the right side, Eddie plays the heavy metal classic in the Upside Down in an effort to lure the bats away from his friends.

Netflix posted the video to Twitter, saying, "Currently losing my mind over @Metallica duetting with Eddie Munson on Master of Puppets!" The streamer even commented on the TikTok video itself, proclaiming, "Hellfire club forever."
Metallica has been enthusiastic about the inclusion of their hit song in the series. The band posted a clip of the now-infamous scene to Instagram with a caption reading, "We were beyond psyched for [the Duffer Brothers] 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," the group added. "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?"
Stranger Things Season 4 is now streaming on Netflix.
