The Stranger Things Theme Mashes Up Perfectly With Drake, Beyoncé, Kanye, And More

Nathan Zed makes a case for the Netflix show’s theme as this year’s top beat.

Wiz Khalifa was one of the first rappers to sample the Stranger Things theme in a new song, but Twitter user @NathanZed is reaching into the past to mash up some classics with Kyle Dixon and Michael Stein of S U R V I V E's much-loved tune. Originally posted on Snapchat, the short videos start with with a clip of Kanye West's "Power" over the theme, then into Kendrick Lamar's "Backseat Freestyle," Drake's "0 to 100," "Partition" by Beyoncé, Desiigner's "Panda." It ends with a Donald Trump remix, which admittedly puts a damper on the synthwave hip-hop party Nathan had created so effectively. Still, watch them all above.
