Netflix has recently celebrated this month for Kate Bush’s Running Up That Hill becoming 2022’s most-streamed throwback song on Spotify! Netflix took this milestone to Twitter by saying, “Clearly, Max wasn’t the only one with Running Up That Hill (A Deal With God) on a near-constant loop this year.”

Given that the song became a sensational phenomenon to commemorate the song that saved Max from Vecna’s trance in Stranger Things Season 4, it’s only natural that Sadie Sink (who plays Max in the series) has admitted this became the very reason that made her stop listening to the song, unfortunately.

Speaking with Insider, Sink reveals that, opposite from Netflix’s Spotify Wrapped this 2022, Kate Bush’s Running Up That Hill did not end up on hers. Check out her full comment below:

“It was last year though, but not this year. This was the year that it kind of took off. So I think I stopped listening to it.”

Interestingly, this goes very much the same for when Max was also beginning to get sick of the song. In one episode, although the redhead was relieved to have been saved from Vecna’s clutches through her favorite song, she does admit on whether this would still manage to save her even if she gets sick of it.

No one can deny that Max running away from Vecna was one of the most gut-wrenching moments in the fourth season, seeing as she was literally on the verge of her death, that is, until she woke up back into her body after Dustin, Lucas, and Steve put her music back on.

With Stranger Things Season 4 ending with Max still in a coma, speculations surround the theory that her life is in her friends’ hands, but more specifically, in Eleven’s (Millie Bobby Brown) and Will Byers (Noah Schnapp), both of whom are the next potential characters to supposedly defeat Vecna together.
