Metallica has premiered the live video of their Stranger Things-themed performance of “Master of Puppets” at Lollapalooza last week.

During the song’s solo, the stage’s video screens showed footage from the Netflix sci-fi series, specifically of the character Eddie Munson shredding the 1986 thrash classic during the season four finale. The “Master of Puppets” placement in Stranger Things has led to newfound popularity for the track, which charted on the Billboard Hot 100 following the finale’s premiere last month.

You can now watch the “Master of Puppets” live video streaming on YouTube.

The Metallica and Stranger Things collaboration continued throughout Lollapalooza weekend when Eddie Munson actor Joseph Quinn met the metal legends for the first time backstage at the festival. Netflix posted a video of the meeting, which saw Metallica and Quinn jam “Master of Puppets” together. Metallica also gifted Quinn with a signed replica of the guitar he played on Stranger Things.
