After seeing the last two episodes of Weird stuff season 4, Kate wrote a blog post saying, “I had only seen the scenes directly related to using the track so I didn’t know how the story was going to evolve or build up. I was so happy that the Duffer Brothers are using RUTH for Max’ totem, but now that I’ve seen the entire last series I feel very honored that the song was chosen to be part of their roller coaster journey I can’t imagine how much hard work went into making this something on this scale. I’m impressed. They’ve made something really spectacular.”

She also noted that there is a lot of unofficial, low-quality merchandise floating around, and that “the only official merchandise is the pre-existing material available through the official websites. We hope you understand that we want to honor the energy generated by audiences right now. An energy that feels very special, unique and frankly, bloody moving.”

Congratulations Kate, you legend!
