The Music of 'Stranger Things' is Birthing Some Impressive Tributes


Hopefully, you've been consumed by one of Netflix's most impressive series to date, Stranger Things. It's a love letter to the '80s, featuring a squad of middle schoolers living in Indiana who are infatuated with that #nerdlife and have to figure out how to combat some true terror. It's everything you loved about '80s music, fashion, and films like The Goonies wrapped up in one perfectly amazing eight-episode program.

One of the biggest hits from the series has been the music, which is drenched in '80s synths and inspiring a bunch of new school takes on the sound. We've thrown some of our favorites down below, but if you find others, please feel free to shoot us an email (subject line STRANGER THINGS) and we'll add to the collection.

Make sure you cop the soundtrack, which is available in two parts via digital download and on vinyl.




Of course the homey Mega Ran flexed his pen over a reworking of the Stranger Things title. It's a fanclub exclusive, but that purchase is well worth it; Mega's about that life.




DJ Yoda put together a collection of tracks both featured in the show and inspired by the show. Soundtrack your next house party to this.



Electronic music producer Luke Million decided to get his jam on to the opening theme.



The Local Action crew decided to dedicate a recent show on Radar Radio to the program, but took it one step further: They got some previously unheard experiments from Slackk, Murlo, Mumdance, Mickey Pearce that fit the vibe. DOOOOOPE tribute for heads who love electronic beats.



Dillon Maurer went in with his "Stranger Raps." You have to love how he takes on the identity of the Demogorgon on this one. Intense.



I randomly asked for a footwork take on the theme, and Hi$to obliged. My word.



Who knew that Childish Gambino's "Bonfire" would sound so dope over the Stranger Things theme?



Wiz Khalifa also coasted over the theme alongside J.R. Donato. Love the addition of those 808s.



This flip of the theme from Machete ups the BPM, which makes glorious things happen.



And who can deny this percussion-heavy take from the mighty Ruckspin?



The Hood Internet slayed with this take, though; Drake's "0 to 100" over the theme? Priceless!
