Here's all the tracks used in Stranger Things season 4

The entirety of Stranger Things season 4 is out now — and fans may have noticed a slew of recognisable 80s bangers on its soundtrack.

Season 4, volume 2, has dropped today (July 1) on Netflix, with the penultimate episode at 85 minutes long, while the finale of the season is a whopping two-and-a-half hours long.

As expected, this season has continued to show audiences some of the most famously known timeless 80s music, as well as revealing an occasional hidden gem from the era.

The soundtrack matches the emotionally-charged storyline which follows the cliffhanger from season 3; Hopper is imprisoned in the snowy wasteland of Kamchatka, Russia, and back in the US - the teens are faced with new horrors.

The friends are separated for the first time, and they're navigating the trials of high-school life. Supernatural threats continue to creep into their world, and these teens are left to battle them.

The release of the new season has even pushed Kate Bush's 'Running Up That Hill' to hit number one on the UK charts — as this track featured in pivotal and toe-curling scenes throughout this Stranger Things season.

While the season may be over, it has been confirmed in February that the show will be back for its fifth and final season. No date has been confirmed yet, but we know that the last season will be just as emotional as this one.
