Fall Out Boy and Missy Elliott Redo the Ghostbuster’s Theme. Thoughts?

All-female cast or not, I’m never been sold about the need to redo Ghostbusters, one of the great comedies of all time. Why mess with something so iconic? Yet here it comes, complete a new-look theme song. I was never a fan of the Ray Parker Jr. original (I had to play the goddam thing ad infinitum on the radio back then; the very mention it makes me want to jump into an open sewer). But I’d take it any day over this abomination. Or maybe that’s just me.
