One of the fun things about every season of the hit Netflix series Stranger Things is the 70s music on the show’s soundtrack.
Songs like Rick Derringer’s ‘Rock and Roll, Hoochie Koo‘, which was played on Stranger Things, Season 4, Episode 8, “Chapter Eight: Papa” this week.
The track was played during the scene at the Army Navy surplus store.
Rick Derringer’s ‘Rock and Roll, Hoochie Koo‘ came out in 1973 on his debut studio album All American Boy.
The funk rock track was a re-release of a single Johnny Winter and his band released three years previously. Derringer was a member of Winter’s band at that time, so this was just his own solo version of a song he obviously liked.
It ended up being the only single Derringer ever released that made it into the Top 40 (#23 ) in the U.S.

The final two episodes of Stranger Things Season 4 are now streaming on Netflix. Season 5, the last season of the hit show, has already been greenlit.
