The new Ghostbusters reboot opens in theaters in a few weeks and the film isn’t the only thing to get an upgrade. Fall Out Boy and Missy Elliott joined forces to revamp the film’s theme song “Ghostbusters (I’m Not Afraid)”

The original was written by Ray Parker Jr. back in 1984 where it reached No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100, and even garnered an Oscar nomination for Best Original Song. Drawing inspiration from Parker’s original, Fall Out Boy and Missy have given the theme song a rock ‘n roll edge with a sprinkle of hip hop flavor.
