I think we can all agree that the one thing the Ghostbusters theme was missing was a late-stage Patrick Stump yowling all over. And while we’re at it, wouldn’t it be better with a whole lot of butt rock guitars piped in from 2003 to replace that bouncy groove and its synth noodling and chintzy horns?

Thankfully that’s all been remedied with Fall Out Boy‘s updated “Ghostbusters (I’m Not Afraid)” theme for the new movie. It features Missy Elliott and it is a big joyless thud of a cover. The new film deserves better. We deserve better. Zuul deserves better. Missy Elliott deserves better.
