With Ghostbusters getting such a major revamp, it was only a matter of time before the original film’s iconic theme song got a makeover, too.
Fall Out Boy and Missy Elliott collaborated on a rock ‘n’ roll, hip-hop tinged adaptation of Ray Parker Jr.’s original for the new all-female reboot starring Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, Leslie Jones and Kate McKinnon.
The Internet basically couldn’t handle it. Here’s what people are saying about the new theme. (Spoiler alert: No one is neutral about it.)
This isn’t the first time the new Ghostbusters, which hits theaters July 15, has received some backlash.
“You can’t get better than the original,” said Wiig, who plays a professor in the film, in response to online criticism about the cast being all-female. “But it’s a different movie, it’s a different cast, it’s many years later, and we’ve also done things that are different. It’s not just about it starring women.”
