Listen to the New Ghostbusters Theme Tune If You Dare

By Aatif Sulleyman on at

It’s strange, it’s weird and it most definitely don’t look good. Fall Out Boy and Missy Elliott have created the new Ghostbusters theme tune, and we can’t even pretend it’s any good.

Ghostbusters (I’m Not Afraid) replaces all of the joy of Ray Parker Jr.’s Ghostbusters with something I can only describe as cheap schoolboy whineyness. If you’re brave enough to risk tainting your memories of the original, press the play button.

While the film itself has received shameful amounts of unfair criticism -- “Nobody can take a movie about capturing ghosts seriously if it has women in it” -- we can’t defend this.

Quickly now, listen to the proper version to clean our your eardrums.
