The boombox is back, just like Rocky

We're back in style again


It's official: The boombox is back. Or maybe it never really left and we just weren't paying attention. Whatever the case, whether it's a budget version or one with a 7-inch LCD, the addition of video seems to have breathed some new life into one of our favorite retro wonders.

But what if you're a purist who just wants to carry a box on your shoulder, destroying your eardrums and those of everyone around you? Take heart, for iLive knows you well. Its cleverly named "iPod Docking System/Boombox" will blare "Eye of the Tiger" to your heart's content for just $38 and play AM/FM radio to boot, according to Chip Chick.

Amazon describes the box as pink, but it looks more purple to us, making it more gender-neutral (?). Maybe that's just wishful thinking. Pigment issues aside, it's almost enough to make us break out that Members Only jacket that we knew would come back.
