The Residents have been providing the world with nightmare material via their genuinely weird music for 40 years. The band, the identities of whom are somewhat shrouded in mystery, are celebrating their Ruby Anniversary with the Ultimate Box Set which contains every release the band (vinyl, CDs, DVDs) as well as one of their signature eyeball and tophat masks that they actually used at various points over the last four decades. It's all housed in a refrigerator and can be yours for the low, low price of $100,000. If that is not special enough for you, there is also a "secret box" that sells for a cool $5 million. You can watch a seven-minute "infomercial" on the UBS below.

For something a little more affordable to the average Residents fan (as if there's actually such a thing), the group are heading out on the Wonder of the Weird Tour which will pull from their myriad releases. The tour hits NYC on February 9 at Stage 48. Tickets for that show are on sale now.

A list of all dates and the Residents' Ultimate Box Set infomercial below...

It was a positive endeavor until they decided to cheat their sound and lights guys. Shame
