Metalheads are now hot, according to the internet

Forever considered cultural outsiders, the alternative to the norm, it appears us metalheads are finally becoming “cool” – on social media at least. In fact, according to TikTok and what has now racked up as billions – yes, billions – of searches related to Stranger Things‘ Eddie Munson on the platform, we’re now also being kind of…um…fetishised?

Eddie Munson captured the hearts of millions in the latest season of Stranger Things after he saved his friends from nightmarish creatures who reside in the Upside Down, via a kickass playthrough of Metallica’s Master Of Puppets. Since then, Munson’s status as a pop culture hero has taken on new significance via TikTok and other social media platforms – he’s now considered a total heartthrob, too.
