    POSTED 8 Jun 2022

    Kate BushIn case you've been living under a rock, you'd be aware that the soundtrack for Netflix’s nostalgic thriller Stranger Things has catapulted Kate Bush's timeless 1985 single Running Up That Hill (A Deal With God) to new heights. Firmly ensconsed in the cultural zeitgeist, the track has found its way back to the top of the charts, thanks to the feverish fandom of a new generation. It's currently dominating TikTok and streaming, powering Bush to an unexpected, yet very much deserved late-career renaissance.

    The lead single from Hounds of Love, has long held a special place in the minds of other musicians though, particularly so in the world's of rock and metal, where Bush's dark, brooding, art-pop, bargaining plea with a deity has always felt like it belonged. With this in mind we've curated this list of the five best metal and rock covers of Running Up That Hill (A Deal With God) to satiate the new generations seemingly unquenchable thirst. Let's get torn asunder.
