Missy Elliott and Fall Out Boy Remake Iconic 'Ghostbusters' Theme Song

“I’m not afraid.”

As anticipation builds up to the release of the new female-fronted Ghostbusters movie, the original 1984 theme song written by Ray Parker Jr. gets refreshed by Fall Out Boy and Missy Elliott. Entitled “I’m Not Afraid,” the song opens with Fall Out Boy’s lead singer Patrick Stump singing, “There’s something strange/in the neighborhood/who you gonna call/Ghostbusters,” similar to the original. Yet, the song has a distinct difference in beat and riff. In addition, the chorus is simply “I’m not afraid,” repeated by Stump. Missy Elliott contributes with a rap verse as well, though we had hoped to hear more of her on the song. While there are mixed reactions to the song on the Internet, have a listen above and let us know us in the comment section below if you prefer the new remake or the 1984 original.

You can see more from Missy Elliott in the new Marc Jacobs Fall 2016 campaign here.
