Oh, come on, baby. Oh, come on, darling. Let me RANK these moments for you now.
Stranger Things Season 4 had some pretty EPIC moments, and most of them were underscored by some pretty iconic songs.
So I ranked all of the most important musical moments from the whole season because it simply needed to be done. Let’s go!
**WARNING: MAJOR — and I mean MAJOR — SPOILERS AHEAD.**

Thought he was gonna die.
Thought she was gonna die. Then she did. :'(
Wasn’t too worried about her dying, but you never know!
Definitely thought he was gonna die, and hated being right. Whyyyyyyyy :”'(
Was too distracted by whatever this outfit was to think he was gonna die. But maybe in the back of my mind.
Felt like they couldn’t possibly let her die, but they made it seem like maybe!!
Did prayer circles with my witch friends to make sure she didn’t die. You’re welcome.
And then Max bravely faces her fate. Like, what a fearless little badass.
And then it all crescendos with this final shot of the Creel House and says, “You ready for the finale, bitch?”
“Master of Puppets,” by Metallica
Max is trying to escape the prison in her own mind. Relatable.
Vecna is looming around every goddamn corner rasping, “Maxiiiiiiiine.” So off-putting.
Literal shit tons of Demobats are on the move, and they did not come to play — they came to slay. But, like, for real.
oh well! Jason’s here! Just what we needed!
Why not throw a horrifying memory of Billy into the mix? Might as well!
But at the end of the day, this scene was ÉPIQUE! And Eddie is an angel and a rock star, and we’ll hold him in our hearts till the end of time.
“Stranger Things Theme (Orchestral Arrangement)”
Like Karen Wheeler, who said, “I’d like a larger role in Season 5, plz.” And we said, “Yes, Mawmaw! Us too!” (And Holly was also there.)
Erica and Lucas gave each other knowing looks, like, “What if we just peaced? Lol…but, like, what if?”
These three took a break from PB&J duty, and I’m not sure they asked.
Dustin got a shot all to himself. Lil’ diva.
Elle was pissed about the flowers. Anything but the flowers.
Mike and Will showed us all that gays and straights really can be friends. Who knew?
Hopper and Joyce were perfect, and I made no jokes about them because I love them too much.
And then we got this shot and all collectively pissed ourselves.
“Running Up That Hill Reprise I” by Kate Bush
None as she ran up that hill.
Or when she made a deal with God.
Okay, we can breathe again.
“Running Up That Hill Reprise II” by Kate Bush
We got to see Eleven pin ol’ Vecs to a tree, which was nice.
And we got to see this Demogorgon show hole. (OMG, I don’t know if I can say that, but oops, I did. Hahah.)
Hopper had a GD sword! (My friends were like, “Where did he get a sWoRd??” And I was like, “From the weapons locker from earlier. God, am I the only one watching this show??”)
Steve, host that he is, mixed up a nice Molotov cocktail for Vecna.
Robin said, “Veccy-poo, would you like anotha?”
And he was like, “Yes ma’am. Moar moar moar!”
And then Nancy showed us all that she is actually the main character of the show.
And no one could disagree. (Except for people in the comments.)
And Vecna fell out of a window like he was Kristen Johnston in Season 6 of Sex and the City. Bye, girl!
wow. What a fun time we had. We gotta give it up to music supervisor Nora Felder this season. She really did an impeccable job from start to finish. We salute you and can’t wait for Season 5!
