Midnight Metal

Friday 12:00 a.m. Midnight

Metallica has partnered with Netflix’s hit series Stranger Things for a new line of Hellfire Club merch.

The metal giants shared the news via Instagram where they wrote, “We’re having the most metal meeting ever of The Hellfire Club so we’re scouting out “lost sheep” and outsiders to join. Do you think you have what it takes? Then suit up!”

The merch features an enhanced Hellfire Club logo along with Metallica’s iconic logo. The designs are available in three shirt varieties: A standard t-shirt, a raglan shirt and a hoodie.

All three designs are available at Metallica.com. However, if you just want a Hellfire Club shirt like the one Eddie Munson wore, you can pick one up at Netflix.Shop.


Metallica has been enjoying the love they received after their classic song “Master of Puppets” was used in the season four finale of Stranger Things. Following its use in Stranger Things, the track made its debut on the Billboard Hot 100 chart 36 years after its initial release.

Metallica went on to close out their headlining set at Lollapalooza on July 28 with “Master of Puppets” and projected Stranger Things character Eddie Munson performing the track on their onstage screens.

Joseph Quinn, the actor that plays Eddie Munson, said in a recent appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon of filming the “Master of Puppets” scene for Stranger Things, “It was kind of nerve-racking, but it was a weird point in the pandemic where no one had seen any live music for ages…I was nervous, but it was kind of like a rock concert, and I got to feel like a rock star for one night, and that was pretty great. That’s all I need.”
