Fall Out Boy and Missy Elliott ain’t afraid of no ghost

Among the many things that the original Ghostbusters got right was its fun, uber-catchy theme song of the same name. Composed by Ray Parker Jr., the song was wildly successful, reaching No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart on August 11, 1984. It held the spot for three weeks and went on to be nominated for Best Original Song at the 57th Academy Awards. Though it lost out to Stevie Wonder’s I Just Called to Say I Love You, Ghostbusters (the song) was a genuine sensation, that had everyone from from California to Kalamazoo proclaiming that they weren’t afraid of no ghost.

Fortunately, along with the upcoming, all-female reboot of the original film, the Ghostbusters theme is getting a new lease on life as well. According to Billboard, Fall Out Boy and Missy Elliott have been tasked with recording a 21st-century version of the song, an honor that crossed an entry off of bassist/lyricist Pete Wentz’s “kid dream bucket list.”

We can certainly relate. Short of actually being a Ghostbuster in real life, this is about as cool as it gets for ’80s babies who were obsessed with the film.

The Ghostbusters: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack album debuts on July 15 and the first single — Elle King’s Good Girls — dropped earlier today. You can listen to that song below, which is pretty darn spirited/catchy in its own right.

Also appearing on the upcoming soundtrack are G-Eazy, Jeremih, Pentatonix, 5 Seconds of Summer, Walk the Moon, and Wolf Alice. The full track listing for the album is expected to be announced soon.

As for Ghostbusters the movie, it hits theaters on July 15, and stars Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon, Leslie Jones, and Chris Hemsworth. You can check out the latest trailer here.
