spoilers for stranger things Season 4 Volume 2 Ahead!
Were you ready for that epic musical moment in the stranger things Season 4 finale? It definitely wasn’t me! The talented Eddie Munson has certainly given the metal concert in world history. And I think I can say that most of us were just as impressed as Dustin certainly was.
Thanks to his beloved instrument, Eddie and Dustin were able to find the perfect way to lure the bats away from the Creel House in the Upside Down so the rest of the group could get to an unprotected Vecna and finally get rid of him once and for all.
“Chrissy, this is for you.” The bitchy rendition of the song “Master of Puppets” by Metallica was dedicated to the former cheerleader Eddie hooked up with in the first episode. Unfortunately, the cute girl was Vecna’s first victim.
In movies and shows, it’s hard to tell when an actor is actually doing something, or if the magic of television is making it appear as if they’re doing it. So, did the Eddie actor actually rock and give us the metal concert?
Did Joseph Quinn really play guitar in Stranger Things Season 4 Volume 2?
The answer is yes! Joseph Quinn, aka the actor who played new fan favorite Eddie, is just as talented as he is stranger things Character.
In conversation with Weekly entertainment, Netflix hit creators Ross and Matt Duffer (the Duffer Brothers) revealed they cast Quinn without realizing he can actually play guitar. But it was a nice surprise!
Here’s what Ross had to say:
I just remember we would text him or call him and be like, “Hey, can you play guitar by the way?” And he’s pretty humble, so he says, “Yeah, I’m pretty good.” He’s more than pretty good. He is great.
The Duffers said the actor spent many hours perfecting the performance. Those of us who’ve seen the episode know that it’s an important scene, and part three of the four phases that the group of friends dreamed up as they tried to take Vecna down. And I have to say, the choice of songs was perfect! The lyrics and the tone he set really worked for the scene.
It’s such a shame we won’t be getting more musical moments from the lovable actor and character. Eddie really grew on me and became one of my favorites. I’m still heartbroken that he’s gone!
stranger things Season 4 Volume 2 is now streaming on Netflix.
