Who will win in this Epic Rap Battle: Ghostbusters or MythBusters? Video screenshot by Bonnie Burton/CNET

One group busts ghosts and the other busts myths, but who deserves to be crowned the cool kings of science -- "Ghostbusters" or "MythBusters?" There's only one way to truly decide: an Epic Rap Battle!

In Epic Rap Battles of History: Ghostbusters vs. MythBusters -- we see "Ghostbusters" movie characters Egon Spengler (played here by Zach Sherwin), Winston Zeddemore (Walter Downing), Peter Venkman (Chris Gorbos), Raymond Stantz (Mark Douglas) and Janine Melnitz (Dodger) rap against "MythBusters" cast members Jamie Hyneman (Nice Peter), Adam Savage (EpicLLOYD), as well as the recently fired B-team of Kari Bryon (Mary Doodles), Tory Belleci (Chris Alvarado), and Grant Imahara (KRNFX).

Fans of both franchises will see plenty of subtle references and a very big reference -- hello Stay Puft Marshmallow Man -- in the rap battle. Even MythBusters co-host Jamie Hyneman's grouchy demeanor is spot on.

The Ghostbusters start out the rap battle against the MythBusters with hard-hitting lyrics like, "Are you tired of two geeks in mustaches who can manage to be boring with explosions and crashes? If you or the Lorax wanna bust like we do give us a call, we're ready to defeat you."

The MythBusters rap the retort, "Your science is preposterous, the opposite of competent process, and in this episode we'll give you a synopsis starting with the vacuum cleaners strapped on your back, it's a fact positrons don't react like that."

Back and forth it goes, with the B-team returning back from the dead and the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man adding in his rap to really settle the score. Who will win the rap battle? You decide!
