In its seven years on the air and counting, Bob’s Burgers has won over our hearts and our stomachs, and now, the animated comedy is taking over your earbuds.

As spotted by Pitchfork, The Bob’s Burgers Music Album—a vast 112-song collection of music that appears in the Fox series—is now available to pre-order on iTunes. Two songs—the theme song and season 6’s “Bad Stuff Happens in the Bathroom”—are immediately available to download.

Sub Pop Records, the iconic indie rock label, is releasing several formats of the album:

The standard version of The Bob’s Burgers Music Album will be available in three formats: 2xCD, 3xLP+7,” and digital. Meanwhile, the deluxe, limited-edition box set version of the album includes the 3xLP+7” on “condiment-colored” vinyl (ketchup red, mustard yellow & relish green), plus a hardbound lyrics book with exclusive Bob’sBurgers artwork, a soft cover sheet-music songbook, three original posters, a six-piece sticker pack, and a patch. Both the standard and deluxe LP editions include the five “Bob’s Buskers” tracks on a white 7” single.

Many of the songs are less than two minutes apiece, and fans will surely recognize them from the show. But the album’s music also has contributions from guest voice actors Aziz Ansari, Paul Rudd, Jordan Peele, and Kevin Kline and songs from the Bob’s Buskers series, a collection of covers from St. Vincent, the National, and Låpsley.

And the characters already have some music cred after they appeared in a Sleater-Kinney music video two years ago.

The Bob’s Burgers Music Album arrives May 12.
