“It was one other a kind of ‘it must be this tune,’ moments,” Felder stated. “This a part of the story was anticipated to be a pivotal and particularly hair-raising scene through which Eddie heroically stood tall for the battle of his life. I imagine the Duffer Brothers felt that enjoying ‘Grasp of Puppets’ all through the prolonged scene was the clear alternative.”

The headbanger is the second ’80s tune to skyrocket up music charts after making it to the soundtrack of the present’s fourth season.
