Hip-hop’s most dangerous group are getting some serious recognition. The Library of Congress announced that N.W.A‘s debut album, Straight Outta Compton will be added to the National Recording Registry after being deemed “culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant” enough to join the collection.

According to Page Six, the LP will be among 24 other recordings making its way to the Washington D.C. building, along with The Wiz soundtrack, Richard Pryor’s Wanted: Live in Concert, Sister Sledge’s “We are Family” and David Bowie’s 1972 album The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust.

This news comes after it was announced the album was being inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame, along with Elvis Presley’s “Jailhouse Rock,” Nirvana’s “Smells Like Teen Spirit,” David Bowie’s “Changes,” Billie Holiday’s Lady Sings The Blues, Beach Boys’ “I Get Around” and many more.
