    RCA Records will be releasing the new Ghostbusters soundtrack on July 15th. It will feature Fall Out Boy ft. Missy Elliott, 5 Seconds of Summer, Walk the Moon, Wolf Alice and more. It looks like Fall Out Boy covered the theme song. The full press release is below.

    (New York, New York – June 3, 2016) – RCA Records is set to release Ghostbusters: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack on July 15th to accompany Sony Pictures’ highly anticipated feature film Ghostbusters, in theaters the same day.
    The soundtrack will feature new music, including Elle King’s “Good Girls,” which will be available at all digital providers tomorrow. “Good Girls” was written by Elle King and Dave Bassett and produced by Bassett.

    Other artists to be featured on the soundtrack include G-Eazy ft. Jeremih, 5 Seconds of Summer, Pentatonix, WALK THE MOON, Fall Out Boy ft. Missy Elliott, Wolf Alice and more. A full track listing will be announced soon.

    Ghostbusters makes its long-awaited return, rebooted with a cast of hilarious new characters. Thirty years after the beloved original franchise took the world by storm, director Paul Feig brings his fresh take to the supernatural comedy, joined by some of the funniest actors working today – Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon, Leslie Jones, and Chris Hemsworth. This summer, they’re here to save the world! The film is produced by Ivan Reitman and Amy Pascal, and written by Katie Dippold & Paul Feig, based on the 1984 film “Ghostbusters,” an Ivan Reitman film, written by Dan Aykroyd and Harold Ramis.

    The film will be released in theaters nationwide on July 15, 2016.

    The AV Club article headline is "Missy Elliott and Fall Out Boy to ruin the Ghostbusters theme" lol.

    "But while Wentz’s childhood dream has come true, at what cost? Clearly, his years of pop-punk stardom have taken Wentz down a dark path of pathological narcissism, convincing him that his childhood is more important than those of the hardcore fans who had a good thing going on hating the new Ghostbusters movie, and frankly don‘t have the time to add the crew of smirking pretty boys who made that terrible “Uma Thurman” song to an already-full hate list."

    I love The A.V. Club. Nothing better than getting my entertainment news with a healthy dose of snark. Whoever at The Onion came up with the idea to do an offshoot site that reports on real news humorously deserves a medal.
