Official RecordingsEdit

These are official recordings of the song by Run-D.M.C. that have been released to the public by MCA Records and Profile Records. Runtimes listed are the official runtimes as listed on the CD/cassette/record singles, images of most can be found in the Gallery section below. Some sources list a runtime that is a second or two different, so runtimes are listed as a guide and not meant to be 100% exact. Some of the singles include the previously-unreleased track "Pause", which has nothing to do with Ghostbusters.

  • Album Version/7" Version (4:10) - available on the Soundtrack album and the CD single.
  • Ghost Power Instrumental (4:07) - available on the CD single.
  • Without Siren (3:49) - available on the CD single.
  • Dub Buster! (4:10) - available on the record and cassette singles.
  • 12" Version (6:00) - available on the record and cassette singles. (The cassette claims to be the "original version from the motion picture", but with a 5:50 actual runtime, its clearly not the same as what's on the soundtrack album.)

Music VideoEdit

Rarely seen, and using a remix of the song, the video features the trio performing on stage at the Music Box Theater in New York City, performing for a bunch of their fans. Several cast members from the film appear, including a few of the guys who act as security for the group.

GHOSTBUSTERS!

I ain't afraid of no ghosts (3X)
GHOSTBUSTERS!

[Run] Something strange goin on
Something's wrong
[DMC] Gloom in the room
Outside is the storm
All alone in the crib
Watchin the tube
[Run] Yo-o-o-o is that what I think?
Did I see somethin move?
[DMC] Chill down your spine
Your heart fills with fright
Not filled by the things
that GO BUMP IN THE NIGHT
They walk through the walls
With no time to stall
[Run] You call the GHOSTBUSTERS
Well that's who you call!

GHOSTBUSTERS!
We ain't-we ain't-we
We ain't afraid of no ghosts
GHOSTBUSTERS!
We ain't-we ain't-we
We ain't afraid of no ghosts
GHOSTBUSTERS!
We ain't-we ain't-we
We ain't afraid of no ghosts
GHOSTBUSTERS!
[Run] Stop! UHH!
[DMC] Bridge
[Run] Hit it!

I-I ain't, I-I ain't
I ain't afraid of no ghosts
I, I-I ain't afraid
I-I ain't, I-I ain't
I-I-I, I-I-I ain't afraid of no ghosts

GHOSTBUSTERS!
GHOSTBUSTERS!

[Run] All alone on the phone
so whassup with that noise?
The wife's at work and I'm no jerk
and I just left my boys
The kids at school and I'm no fool
and I got no time to waste
So you get up and call, don't trip and fall
Go outside and leave the place
Now it's no dream because you seein
a shadow in the night
But we will come and get it done
so don't worry save your fright
Now there's a group who likes to troop
and you know you can trust us
So don't get nervous cause they're at your service
the local GHOSTBUSTERS!

I ain't afraid of no ghosts
I ain't I ain't afraid of no ghosts (2X)
GHOSTBUSTERS!
I ain't afraid of no ghosts
I ain't I ain't afraid of no ghosts (2X)
GHOSTBUSTERS!

[DMC] Aight aight aight
I remember the time, I visited the grave
My life on the line, only my life to save
All by myself, with no one around
Did not understand a hand comin out the ground
I knew it wasn't mine, it was somebody else
But I didn't care G, I just screamed for HELP!
Then - GHOSTBUSTERS - packs strapped to their back
Screamin - GHOSTBUSTERS - Ghostbusters attacked
"We are your friendly neighborhood ghostbusters,"
that's what they said to me
"We are the busters of any G-H-O-S-T"

GHOSTBUSTERS!
I ain't-I ain't-I ain't
I ain't afraid of no ghosts
GHOSTBUSTERS!
I ain't-I ain't-I ain't
I ain't afraid of no ghosts

[Run] Howling haunting
[DMC] Scaring screaming
[Run] Ghostly ghosts
[DMC] Ghouling demons!
[Run] Monsters spooks
[DMC] Werewolves and devils
[Run] All those things
[DMC] on the same level
[Run] Nightmares (bad dreams) cannot be beat
It takes a brave man (to stand in defeat)
Must be the bravest (yo, the bravest and most)
You must be able to say, "I ain't afarid of no ghosts"
[DMC] A good sense of humor, is important to have
When a ghost tries to scare you (ha, don't make me laugh)
They be dustin' off ghosts, like true ghost-dusters
[both] Go, go, go, go, ghoooooosstbusters!

GHOSTBUSTERS!

[D.M.C.]
Busters, busters!
One time in the house
Peace to everybody out there
We love ya, peace

I AIN'T AFRAID OF NO GHOSTS
