GHOSTBUSTERS!!!
I ain't afraid of no ghost!!
GHOSTBUSTERS!!!

Somethin' strange goin' on
Something's wrong, gloom in the room
Outside is the storm
All alone in the crib, watchin' the tube
Yo ho ho, is that what I did, did I see somethin' move?
Chills down your spine, your heart fills with fright
Not thrilled by the things, that go bump in the night
They walk through the wall, with no time to stall
You call the GHOSTBUSTERS!!!
Well that's who you call!!

GHOSTBUSTERS!!!
We ain't afraid of no ghost
GHOSTBUSTERS!!!
Stop, ugh, bridge, hit it!!
I ain't afraid of no ghost
GHOSTBUSTERS!!!

All alone on the phone, so what's up with that noise
My wife's at work and I'm no jerk and I just love the boys
The kids at school and I'm no fool and I got no time to waste
So you give the call (You trip and fall)
And you try to leave the place
Now it's no dream because you seen 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 at your service is the local GHOSTBUSTERS!!!

Chorus

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 Backs , screamin' GHOSTBUSTERS!!!
Ghostbusters attack.
We are the friendly neighborhood Ghostbusters
That's what they said to me
We are the busters of any G-H-O-S-T!!
GHOSTBUSTERS!!!

Chorus

Howling, haunting, scary, screaming
Ghostly ghosts, ghouling demons
Monsters, spooks, werewolves and devils,
All those things (all say never)
Nightmares, bad dreams, can be beat
It takes a brave man to stand in defeat
Must be the bravest, yo the bravest and most
Must be able to say "I ain't afraid of no ghost"
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)
GO GO GO GO GHOSTBUSTERS!!!
We're down in the house
Peace everybody out there
We love ya (And Jesus, you know what I mean?)

I ain't afraid of no ghost

Run-D.M.C

Run-D.M.C (4K)

More than any other hip-hop group, Run-D.M.C. is responsible for the sound and style of the music. As the first hardcore rap outfit, the trio set the sound and style for the next decade of rap. With its spare beats and excursions into heavy metal samples, the trio was tougher and more menacing than its predecessors Grandmaster Flash and Whodini. In the process, it opened the door for both the politicized rap of Public Enemy and Boogie Down Productions, as well as the hedonistic gangsta fantasies of N.W.A. At the same time, Run-D.M.C. helped move rap from a singles-oriented genre to an album-oriented one -- they were the first hip-hop artist to construct full-fledged albums, not just a collection with two singles and a bunch of filler. By the end of the '80s, Run-D.M.C. had been overtaken by the groups they had spawned, but they continued to perform to a dedicated following well into the '90s.

All three members of Run-D.M.C. were natives of the middle-class New York borough, Hollis, Queens. Run (born Joseph Simmons, November 14, 1964) was the brother of Russell Simmons, who formed the hip-hop management company Rush Productions in the early '80s; by the mid-'80s, Russell had formed the pioneering record label Def Jam with Rick Rubin. Russell encouraged his brother Joey and his friend, Darryl McDaniel (b. May 31, 1964) to form a rap duo. The pair of friends did just that, adopting the names Run and D.M.C. respectively. After they graduated from high school in 1982, the pair enlisted their friend, Jason Mizell (b. January 21, 1965) , to scratch turntables; Mizell adopted the stage name Jam Master Jay.

In 1983, Run-D.M.C. released its first single, "It's Like That" / "Sucker M.C.'s," on Profile Records. The single sounded like no other rap at the time -- it was spare, blunt and skillful, with hard beats and powerful, literate, daring vocals, where Run and D.M.C.'s vocals overlapped, as they finished each other's lines. It was the first "new school" hip-hop recording. "It's Like That" became a Top 20 R&B hit, as did the group's second single, "Hard Times" / "Jam Master Jay." Two other hit R&B singles followed in early 1984 -- "Rock Box" and "30 Days" -- before the group's eponymous debut appeared.

By the time of their second album, 1985's King of Rock, Run-D.M.C. had become the most popular and influential rappers in America, already spawning a number of imitators. As the King of Rock title suggests, the group was breaking down the barriers between rock & roll and rap, rapping over heavy metal records and thick, dense drum loops. Besides releasing the King of Rock album and scoring the R&B hits "King of Rock, "You Talk Too Much" and "Can You Rock It Like This" in 1985, the group also appeared in the rap movie Krush Groove, which also featured Kurtis Blow, the Beastie Boys, and the Fat Boys.

Run-D.M.C.'s fusion of rock and rap broke into the mainstream with their third album, 1986's Raising Hell. The album was preceded by the Top Ten R&B single "My Adidas," which set the stage for the group's biggest hit single, a cover of Aerosmith's "Walk This Way." Recorded with Aerosmith's Steven Tyler and Joe Perry, "Walk This Way" was the first hip-hop record to appeal to both rockers and rappers, as evidenced by its peak position of number four on the pop charts. In the wake of the success of "Walk This Way," Raising Hell became the first rap album to reach number one on the R&B charts, to chart in the pop Top Ten, and the first to go platinum, and Run-D.M.C. was the first rap act to received airplay on MTV -- they were the first rappers to cross over into the pop mainstream. Raising Hell also spawned the hit singles "You Be Illin'" and "It's Tricky."

Run-D.M.C. spent most of 1987 recording Tougher than Leather, their follow-up to Raising Hell. Tougher than Leather was accompanied by a movie of the same name. Starring Run-D.M.C., the film was an affectionate parody of '70s Blaxploitation films. Although Run-D.M.C. had been at the height of their popularity when they were recording and filming Tougher than Leather, by the time the project was released, the rap world had changed. Most of the hip-hop audience wanted to hear hardcore political rappers like Public Enemy, not crossover artists like Run-D.M.C. Consequently, the film bombed and the album only went platinum, failing to spawn any significant hit singles.

Two years after Tougher than Leather, Run-D.M.C. returned with Back from Hell, which became their first album not to go platinum. Following its release, both Run and D.M.C. suffered personal problems as Daniels suffered a bout of alcoholism and Simmons was accused of rape. After Daniels sobered up and the charges against Simmons were dismissed, both of the rappers became born-again Christians, touting their religious conversion on the 1993 album, Down with the King. Featuring guest appearances and production assistance from artists as diverse as Public Enemy, EPMD, Naughty by Nature, A Tribe Called Quest, Neneh Cherry, Pete Rock, and KRS-1, Down with the King became the comeback Run-D.M.C. needed. The title track became a Top Ten R&B hit and the album went gold, peaking at number 21. Although they were no longer hip-hop innovators, the success of Down with the King proved that Run-D.M.C. were still respected pioneers.
