German rockers The Scorpions will be honored by the Los Angeles City Council on Friday.

MyNewsLA reports the city will declare October 6 as “Scorpions Day” following a resolution by Councilman Jose Huizar that recognizes the group for “52 years of excellence in rock ‘n roll, including making records in Los Angeles, the entertainment capital of the world.”

The resolution notes that the group has ties to Los Angeles, where the band recorded three albums and has frequently performed over the years.

The Scorpions will be on hand to accept the honor at a council meeting to be held at Van Nuys City Hall.
