Listen to Creedence Clearwater Revival’s ‘Up Around the Bend’ from Stranger Things, Season 4, Ep. 8

Legendary American rock band Creedence Clearwater Revival’s ‘Up Around the Bend‘ was played on Part 2 of Season 4 of Stranger Things today — Stranger Things, Season 4, Episode 8, “Chapter Eight: Papa“.

The song was the second single released from the band’s fifth studio album Cosmo’s Factory.

That album which came out in 1970 on the Fantasy record label.

Creedence Clearwater Revival’s ‘Up Around the Bend‘ came out with ‘Run Through the Jungle‘ on its B-side, and quickly headed to #4 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.

The rock song also hit #1 in Canada and the Netherlands, as well as ranked high up on music charts in 10 other countries.

It was ultimately certified Gold in the United States.

Up Around the Bend‘ also seems to be popular by TV show music supervisors, as not only was the song played on the soundtrack of Stranger Things, it has also showed up on other shows.

Series like American Gods, Hap and Leonard, The Wonder Years, Kurt Cobain: About a Son and Caught, as well as on the films Red Dawn, Invincible, Remember the Titans and The Hoax.
