On July 15, 2016, the world was hit by a wave of nostalgia through the fictional town of Hawkins, Indiana.

While the release of its Season 4 remains on-hold because of the pandemic, relive the adventures of Mike, Dustin, Lucas, and the rest of Hawkins.

WEST HOLLYWOOD, CALIFORNIA - JANUARY 11: (L-R) MIchael Schneider, David Harbour, Finn Wolfhard, Caleb McLaughlin, Millie Bobby Brown, Maya Hawke, Andrey Ivchenko, Carmen Cuba, Brett Gelman, Cary Elwes and Jake Busey speak onstage during Netflix's "Stranger Things" Q&A and Reception at Pacific Design Center on January 11, 2020 in West Hollywood, California.

"Should I Stay or Should I Go" by The Clash

It played in Stranger Things-  Season One Episode 2: "The Weirdo on Maple Street." Charlie Heaton's Jonathan Byers remembers his lost brother, Will, in a scene relatable to most of us. An older brother introduces the younger one to rock icons like The Clash (who sang the background music), Joy Division, David Bowie, has become one of those brief yet memorable exchanges most siblings will always remember.

"Heroes" by Peter Gabriel

This Peter Gabriel hit appeared on Season One Episode 3: "Holly, Jolly." It was a moment of denial for fans of the show as Will's body was apparently fished out of the lake. The four kids were heartbroken at their friend's death. The episode ends as Gabriel sings, "Then we could be heroes, just for one day." It's tricky, because the version used was Peter Gabriel's orchestral 2010 version. The original song, however, was by David Bowie from 1977.

"Time After Time" by Cyndi Lauper

Cyndi Lauper's 1983 timeless hit appeared during Stranger Things- Season 2, Episode 9: "Chapter 9." The song plays as the kids attend their school's winter dance. The boys find a partner to dance with. It is one of the most nostalgic scenes in Stranger Things. The kids were still able to celebrate a winter dance like most oblivious kids their age. The threat of the Mind Flayer remains, watching from a distance. Also, "Time After Time," as far as proms and dances are concerned, is the best 80s music.

"(I Just) Died In Your Arms Tonight" by Cutting Crew

Karen Wheeler, mother of Nancy, Mike and Holly, is at the center of this short scene. As she gets ready for her appointment with Nancy, Cutting Crew's "(I Just) Died In Your Arms Tonight." In the premiere episode for Stranger Things- Season 3, "Suzie, Do You Copy." This 1986 hit was written by Nick Van Eede and was their band's biggest hit at the point.

"The NeverEnding Story" by Limahl

One of the most iconic scenes in all three seasons of Stranger Things is this 80s music from the 1984 film "The NeverEnding Story." Originally sung by Limahl and produced by the legendary Giorgio Moroder, it was an unexpected part in the series. It appeared in the eighth episode "The Battle of Starcourt," with Suzie and Dustin singing in a cute and lovable duet. Their actors, Gabriella Pizzolo and Gaten Matarazzo, are Broadway-trained talents.
