There’s a new Ghostbusters movie coming out on July 15th and the soundtrack will feature some epic tunes from awesome artists. Of course you can’t have a Ghostbusters soundtrack without the original Ghostbusters theme song by Ray Parker Jr. However, covering the iconic theme is no easy task, so you need the right band for the job and it appears that Fall Out Boy is that band.
Pete Wentz noted on Twitter that he has crossed something off of his dream bucket list because he covered the Ghostbusters theme with Missy Elliot.
crossed one off the kid dream bucket list by covering Ray Parker theme with missy Elliot verse 😁
