Metallica’s James Hetfield paid tribute to “Stranger Things” for Halloween.
There's a non-zero chance that the Eddie Munson character, his style and mannerisms, were based on Hetfield's look from Metallica's early days. Compare Munson's hairdo to Hetfield's long locks from the mid-'80s.
While Hetfield might not have had to look outside of his own closet for his Munson gear, his enthusiasm for Stranger Things is genuine. The singer says his family has watched the show together since its debut in 2016.
- Hetfield posted a pic to the band’s Instagram account showing off his costume, where he was dressed like Eddie Munson.
- Hetfield is striking one of Eddie’s poses in the pic, holding two hand-horns to the top of his head with his tongue sticking out.
