David Harbour has revealed what song would save him from Stranger Things villain Vecna.

The main villain in the sci-fi phenomenon, Vecna can haunt and kill its prey who can only escape by listening to their favourite song.

Speaking to E! Harbour revealed what song he would turn to if confronted by Vecna: “It’s just so embarrassing, my taste in music, I rarely reveal it. My sort of college years were the early ’90s. So that’s really where music really became very important."

Harbour then joked: “I’m sure [that song] would bring me back. Bring me back to college!”.

In the past, Harbour has also expressed his love for alternative rock bands from the 90s, saying: “I guess, should Vecna capture me now, it would be [Tones And I’s] ‘Dance Monkey’. In general, it’s terrible ’90s rock ballads, the stuff that I listened to when I was smoking weed in college. Like ‘Drops Of Jupiter’ [by Train]… I’m showing my 90s, but yeah, that would be it for me.”

As a result of the use of popular music within the show, 80s hits such as Kate Bush's 'Running Up That Hill' and Metallica's 'Master of Puppets' have seen huge surges in popularity.

'Running Up That Hill' ended up topping the UK singles chart for three weeks 37 years after it was originally released.

It was a rare instance of Bush allowing her music to be licensed for film and TV.
