According to the fourth episode of Stranger Things’ new season, which premiered in May, Vecna, who murders people from the inside out by invading and possessing their minds, can be outrun if one listens to their favorite song. According to the program, music has a unique ability to anchor people in reality, a phenomena that saves Sadie Sink’s character, Max, at one point when she listens to her favorite song: Kate Bush’s “Running Up That Hill (A Deal With God),” which is currently experiencing a massive rise in streaming and chart success as a result of its presence on the show.
Bower isn’t the only Stranger Things actor who has spoken out over his anti-Vecna song choice. Sink just claimed that Taylor Swift’s “August” would be her go-to song while fighting Vecna.
“If I’m being cheeky and fun, it would be Miley Cyrus ‘Party In The USA,’” Jamie told ET Canada on the MTV Movie & TV Awards red carpet Sunday (June 5).
