Listen to the new and terrible Ghostbusters theme from Fall Out Boy and Missy Elliott


Regardless of how you feel about the Ghosbusters or the upcoming reboot (which I hope succeeds so we get more movies like it), we can all at least agree that the original film’s theme was pretty good right? In terms of recognizable pop culture themes, it’s pretty much up there with the “nah nah nah nah nah nah nah nah” from the 1960 Batman series. 

Naturally, with a new version of Ghostbusters comes a new version of the theme. In more of a retooling than straight remix (which is probably a good sign of the film’s originality, regardless of quality), Fall Out Boy, with a verse from Missy E, throw out hot fire. Wait, did I say hot fire? I meant hot garbage. This song is pretty bad. Listen for yourselves below. 

Ghostbusters opens July 15th.
