It's not yet the end of passion play for Metallica, as the legendary metal band continues to show its love for Stranger Things and Eddie Munson.

In case you didn't know, the newcomer and instant fan favorite Eddie (Joseph Quinn) played an abridged version of Master of Puppets—including the Kirk Hammett shreds—during a pivotal scene in the fourth season's finale.

Eddie broke the internet with his performance, and Metallica was all praises for him, saying it's "totally blown away" with how its 1986 classic was used in the sci-fi series.

Now, Metallica—James Hetfield (vocals, rhythm guitar), Lars Ulrich (drums), Hammett (lead guitar), and Robert Trujillo (bass)—just had a "duet" with Eddie on TikTok.

In a minute-long split-screen video, the quartet can be seen wearing Hellfire Club shirts, an homage to Eddie being the leader of the fictional group in the series, as the memorable scene plays.

"Eddie, this is for you," the band wrote in the caption, a nod to the character's "Chrissy, this is for you" line before he plays Master of Puppets.

TikTok users expressed their joy in the comments, including the verified accounts of Netflix and Netflix Geeked.

"hellfire club forever (heart on fire emoji)," Netflix wrote.

"HELL YEAH KINGS!!!!!!!!" Netflix Geeked said.

For a user, the moment made them "glad to be alive today."

Another user said it's already their favorite video "of all time, on any platform."

Guitar string company Ernie Ball also joined in on the fun.

"Metallica covering Metallica," it said, followed by a sign of the horns and fire emojis.
