Metallica’s James Hetfield Dressed as ‘Stranger Things’ Eddie Munson for Halloween
Eddie Munson was a popular Halloween costume this year, thanks to the popularity of Stranger Things' fourth season that was released over the summer. The character was such a hit that Metallica's James Hetfield even dressed up as him for Halloween.
There have been many ties between Metallica and Stranger Things over the last few months since the fourth season of the show became available on Netflix, and it all started when Munson shredded along to "Master of Puppets" during the finale. Because of that one scene, the song went viral on TikTok — creating a whole new generation of Metallica fans — and entered the Billboard Hot 100 chart for the very first time, and received a few other accolades as well.
Metallica showed their appreciation for the show in a variety of ways, such as making their own TikTok jamming to "Master of Puppets" alongside Munson, paying homage to the character during festival performances and teaming up with the show for an exclusive line of merchandise. But, if you thought they'd had enough, you thought wrong.
Hetfield revealed his Eddie Munson Halloween costume yesterday on Metallica's social media, and the outfit consisted of a dark wig, a denim jacket with a Hellfire Club shirt underneath, jeans and high-top sneakers. Of course, he threw up the good 'ol horns and stuck his tongue out too, just as Munson did in a particular scene in the show.
