Fall Out Boy & Missy Elliott release their version of the Ghostbusters theme

06.23.2016

With tent pole films come songs to accompany the soundtrack by the latest artists of today's pop music world. Much like video game adaptations, these songs are generally pretty bad and forgotten before the film's theatrical run is even over. That wasn't the case with Ray Parker Jr.'s GHOSTBUSTERS theme (despite riffing on Huey Lewis' New Drug), and now it's time for an "updated" version brought to us by Fall Out Boy and Missy Elliott. Be brave, my friends.

Admittedly I've never sat down and listened to Fall Out Boy, but this is bad. This is the kind of bad that makes you want to take off your headphones, book a ticket on the earliest flight leaving your town and travel hundreds of miles away to a foreign city. You'll take the time to learn some of the customs and make new friends and become one with the community. Then, all of a sudden, you'll throw yourself off of the highest point in town. People will wonder why you did it, before discovering a note on your mangled corpse that reads, "Ghostbusters (I'm Not Afraid) by Fall Out Boy featuring Missy Elliott."

GHOSTBUSTERS will open in theaters on July 15, 2016.

I've wanted this movie to work out since the start but... yikes. I liked the twenty one pilots song for Suicide Squad that came out recently a lot more.

Haven't been this disappointed in a movie theme song since hearing Madonna's "Die Another Day" for the first time.

Good ... God.

I actually like Fall Out Boy. I never understood why they got so much hate, in fact. But ... this is BAD. Why the hell did Fall Out Boy and Missy even sign up for this? How much of a dump truck full of money did Hollywood send their way? I'm curious about this movie, but this is a REALLY bad sign. :(

For F#@!'s Sake

I am, and still kind of am, 100% positive about this remake/reboot, etc. If for nothing else the fun and people shooting ghosts on screen with proton packs. Though I have NO words for this piece of shˇt song. First of all, Fall Out Boy? Really? And Missy Elliott, whom I love, shame on you. Can we have April Fool's in June?

A crappy remake for what looks like a lackluster reboot. Sounds about right.

Overproduced and sounds like they were trying to say the lyrics as fast as they could so they could get their checks and leave.
Strangely enough the music sounds like a slowed down record of the original theme being played.

This song, no laughs, bad casting, and writing out all original characters = massive reboot failure!

This new song only proves more and more that nothing is really working in favor of this film. This song is awful!
The problem is not that the new Ghostbusters are women. The biggest problems so far are (aside from this new dreadful theme).....
The trailers are not funny, there not even giggle funny. Murray, Ramis, Aykroyd, Hudson, and Moranis all added so much comedy to original which is why it’s held up so high today. Casting McCarthy and Jones was a huge mistake. They’re painful to listen

The trailers are not funny, there not even giggle funny. Murray, Ramis, Aykroyd, Hudson, and Moranis all added so much comedy to original which is why it’s held up so high today. Casting McCarthy and Jones was a huge mistake. They’re painful to listen to and see in the trailers.
The other biggest mistake with the new Ghostbusters is that the film uses the same ghosts, the same fire station location, the same logo, but this new plot line tells us the original Ghostbuster characters never existed! The new plot line suggests these four women came up with everything. I would be more accepting if the plot line was about Murray, Aykroyd, and Hudson recruiting these four girls to take over the Ghostbuster business and fight off a new threat to NYC. The Studio’s decision to ignore the original Ghostbusters characters completely in this reboot, is a huge f**k up on their part. Star Trek did a proper reboot, not only did they keep the original characters they also had Nimoy as older Spock.

The song itself is okay. Not as good as the original (which is way more catchy) but okay. However, they should fix the first 15 seconds. I almost turn it off because of that cacophony.

No cover would've matched the original. If they had written a new song, it would've been compared too and probably would've "lost". Why didn't they just use the original theme? Because it's not a direct sequel? I think that ship has sailed. Now, I don't hate this version, but it doesn't seem to fit in the movie, based on the tone shown in the trailers. "Admittedly I've never sat down and listened to Fall Out Boy". Then I wouldn't recommend you the other 80s song they covered: BEAT IT by Michael
