    Hey Mouth Breathers, The “Stranger Things” Soundtrack Is Finally Here

    And the track names are iconic.

    If you're anyone who's anyone, you know that Stranger Things is the best show around right now.


    And if you don't, you better get to binge-watching, or you're an even bigger idiot than Steve Harrington.

    The only thing better than Stranger Things is its haunting, '80s synthesizer-packed soundtrack.


    Netflix promised us the music, and "soon" — but WHEN IS SOON?

    We hear you loud and clear. The #StrangerThings Official Soundtrack is coming soon. Over.

    The Duffer Brothers, who created Stranger Things, used the band's first LP in a trailer they made to pitch their concept to Netflix.

    “We discussed having a classic tone and feel to the music for the show but being reserved enough that it wasn't ’80s cheese, while offering a refreshing quality so that felt modern," Stein said in a Netflix press release.


    And while we wait for Aug. 12, give the show's more mainstream bops a listen on the official Spotify playlist.
