Believe it or not, The Stooges’ iconic second studio album Fun House is turning 50 this year. And the rockers won’t let this important occasion pass without a proper celebration.

Rhino Records announced that the 50th anniversary of Fun House will be commemorated with a special box-set that will contain numerous goods for the band’s fans. The collection, which will be released on July 17th, will contain whooping 15 LPs alongside two 7” singles.

The box-set will come with the remastered version of the original album, full recording sessions, handful of live performances from the era, and lots of other content. The release is limited to 1,970 copies and available for pre-order as of now.

Check out the trailer and other info about the release below.

When it was released in 1970, Fun House received mostly negative reviews and wasn’t a commercial success. In decades that followed, however, the record was recognized as one of the punk rock’s most influential releases. The critics also started viewing it as one of the greatest music albums ever released.
