Songs by Mötley Crüe and The Who have been used to score the trailer to the upcoming third season of Stranger Things.
The trailer, which debuted this afternoon (20th March), opens to the sounds of Mötley Crüe’s 1985 song ‘Home Sweet Home’ before a reworked version of The Who’s 1971 classic ‘Baba O'Riley’ starts playing as the trailer takes a more sinister turn.
Watch it here:
Set in the 1980s, the third season of supernatural drama Stranger Things will premiere exclusively on Netflix on Thursday 4th July.
The inclusion of Mötley Crüe’s ‘Home Sweet Home’ in particular could be seen as a shrewd bit of advertising by Netflix – the band’s long-awaited biopic The Dirt is set to premiere on the streaming service this Friday (22nd March).
A true cultural phenomenon, Stranger Things follows the residents of a small Indiana town in the aftermath of a boy's mysterious disappearance.
The cast includes Winona Ryder, David Harbour, Finn Wolfhard, Noah Schnapp, Millie Bobby Brown, Caleb McLaughlin, Gaten Matarazzo, Cara Buono, Natalia Dyer, Charlie Heaton, Joe Keery, Dacre Montgomery, Sadie Sink, Sean Astin and Paul Reiser.
Rock songs that featured in the first two seasons of Stranger Things include Bon Jovi’s ‘Runaway’, Peter Gabriel’s cover of David Bowie’s ‘Heroes’, Scorpions’ ‘Rock You Like A Hurricane’, Toto’s ‘Africa’ and The Clash’s ‘Should I Stay Or Should I Go’.
