The new all-female “Ghostbusters” reboot has been met with criticism at every turn. Now, even the new theme song is coming under fire.

The original tune is a classic by any standard, but the updated version featuring Fall Out Boy and Missy Elliott doesn’t seem to be sitting right with fans. Take a listen and decide for yourself.

“Ghostbusters (I’m Not Afraid),” the hit 1984 “Ghostbusters” theme song by Ray Parker, Jr., is so well-known and enjoyed that it has made its way into the pop culture hall of fame. This new version, however, is not being embraced by movie-goers as much as the studio may have hoped.

Fans and entertainment outlets of all ages have logged on to Twitter to voice their displeasure with the tune.

“Ghostbusters” is scheduled to hit theaters on July 15.
