The only thing that could save people from Vecna’s trance is music, as Nancy and Robin find in Season 4 Volume 1’s episode, Dear Billy. It is shown that Kate Bush’s “Running Up That Hill (A Deal with God)” saves Max from Vecna and she is able to come back from the Upside Down as Dustin and friends play it on her cassette player.
The scene became a prominent moment in Stranger Things, and the song with its emotional lyrics made the 1985 song popular. It has even seen an unexpected resurgence thanks to its usage in an important moment in the show. Nearly 40 years after its release, the Kate Bush single climbed the top spot on the U.K. charts as well as the top ten on U.S. charts, thanks to the show. The song has amassed over 465 million views on Spotify.
Stranger Things Season 4 Volume 2 dropped on Netflix on July 1. The promotional material for the show teased an absolutely huge season finale involving monsters, explosions, and even Eddie playing the guitar in Upside Down.
