Metallica And ‘Stranger Things’ Team Up For Hellfire Club Merch

·2-min read

Here’s a collaboration Eddie Munson fans will surely want to get their hands on.

Legendary metal band Metallica has teamed up with Netflix hit series Stranger Things on an official collection of Hellfire Club merchandise. The line comprises a raglan shirt, black T-shirt and hoodie, all of which are emblazoned with Metallica’s distinctive logo and feature the Hellfire Club emblem flanked by blazing guitars.

For the uninitiated, Metallica recently saw a resurgence of mainstream interest after the release of Stranger Things season 4, where an episode saw the popular character Eddie Munson (played by Joseph Quinn) effortlessly shredding the band’s ‘Master Of Puppets’ in the Upside Down. That scene was so memorable it got people listening to the 1986 tune again, and even propelled it into the Billboard Hot 100 for the very first time. Click here for a refresher.

As Eddie Munson’s the leader of The Hellfire Club — a Dungeons & Dragons interest group — in the show, the new Metallica x Stranger Things collection is only apt.
