Stranger Things is famous for its magnificent soundtrack, which highlights the greatest of the 1980s and presents these timeless classics to a new generation.

Season 4 of the Netflix programme is no exception, as evidenced by the comeback of Kate Bush’s song “Running Up That Hill (A Deal With God)” in Volume 1 as Max Mayfield’s (Sadie Sink) favourite song.

Volume 2 contains even more grandiose musical moments, including the return of Bush’s popular song.

Joseph Quinn previously foreshadowed an epic sequence in the Upside Down with his character Eddie Munson and a guitar, which was briefly shown in the Volume 2 teaser.

Eddie picks up his guitar in the scene as part of the Hawkins crew’s strategy to defeat Vecna. Eddie is jamming out to Metallica’s legendary hit “Master of Puppets” for people who are wondering about the familiar metal tune.

Eddie’s choice of music while in the Upside Down seems apt, given that Vecna is a puppet master in his own way.

Quinn told the Guardian that “the scale and ambition are astonishing” for the scenario, and that “all the seeds that have been planted bear fruit and it’s just carnage.”

“You know the finale is two-and-a-half hours, right? Ending with this monster, feature-length episode is so bold,” Quinn states.

Along with the previously mentioned Metallica song, Volume 2 (two episodes) has Journey’s “Separate Ways (Worlds Apart)” in a fairly touching scene towards the close of Episode 8.

Meanwhile, in Episode 9, Sink’s Max has a sequence where The Police’s “Every Breath You Take” takes centre stage, much like Bush’s “Running Up That Hill (A Deal With God)” did in Volume 1.

Fans who thought they’d heard the last of Bush’s 1980s classic would be mistaken, as the song appears heavily in the final two installments of Stranger Things Volume 2.
