Eddie Munson is easily the best part about Stranger Things 4. The character has become a beloved part of the fandom and actor Joseph Quinn has become a breakout star for his role. During the show, Eddie delivers an excellent performance where his character fights off flesh-eating bats with the power of metal.
Eddie Munson plays a face-melting rendition of Metallica’s song, Master of Puppets, during a critical scene in Stranger Things 4. The infectious energy and visceral power he brings to the screen was actually so impressive, it managed to catch the attention of Metallica themselves.

To prove how much they loved it, yesterday, Metallica paid tribute to Eddie’s iconic guitar solo in the show by adding his face to their live performance, which you can see below thanks to the Twitter account bestofjosephq.
Stranger Things is no stranger to musical tributes, as Twenty-One Pilots delivered a tribute performance surrounding the show during a recent live performance.
