Metallica reaches over 2M views on TikTok with viral Stranger Things scene

Talk about some face-melting metal!

Metallica had a hardcore response to the “Stranger Things” season 4 finale, and fans on social media are loving it.

On Friday, the heavy metal band — whose albums dominated the charts in the 1980s — gave “Stranger Things” fans something to pound their heads to on TikTok.

Metallica bandmates James Hetfield, Lars Ulrich, Kirk Hammett, and Robert Trujillo posted a TikTok video rocking out to the “Master of Puppets” scene with the caption “Eddie, this is for you!”

If that wasn’t enough of a treat in itself, the band was rocking the show’s iconic “Hell Fire Club” T-shirts while thrashing out.

Since the video was posted to TikTok it has already reached 2 million views and is closing in on 1.5 million likes.

While in the show Eddie Munson (Joseph Quinn) saves the day with an amazingly well-produced, thrashing tribute to the critically acclaimed song.

Metallica seemingly has done so as well with their TikTok duet.

It was something the world didn’t know it needed but is much appreciated.

One can only hope that Kate Bush follows suit.
