While Stranger Things may be getting a lot of Metallica love right now, it is worth nothing that the band’s hit song “Enter Sandman” is part of a soundtrack for another major TV show. Granted, it is not the original thrash banger, but a classical remix of the song. We have checked it out for ourselves and really enjoy this spin on the thrash gem.
“Enter Sandman” is part of the band’s fifth studio record, The Black Album. The classical mix of this song is part of the season four soundtrack to Westworld (starring Evan Rachel Woods). The science-fiction HBO show has been running since 2016, and follows a plethora of existential themes. The classical remix of this legendary Metallica cut is performed by Ramin Djawadi. You can check out that song below.

There has been a lot of buzz surrounding the Metallica song cameo that appears in the latest season of Stranger Things. During a recent conversation, the son of Metallica’s Robert Trujillo, Tye Trujillo, spoke to how he landed the gig that allowed him to work on the “Master of Puppets” cameo in the show. There is also some new footage that has appeared online that shows off Stranger Things actor Joe Quinn practicing his guitar skills and playing the awesome Metallica cut. It is also worth noting that the big scene in Stranger Things where Eddie plays the song was also written with that classic thrash banger in mind. Links to all these stories can be found below.
