Zombie Birdhouse is an album written between January and May 1982 by Iggy Pop and Rob DuPrey. It was recorded on 16-track in June 1982 at Blank Tape Studios in New York City. Chris Stein, of the punk band Blondie played guitar on the album, and produced the album. Clem Burke, another Blondie member played drums. The album was released on vinyl and compact disc in September 1982 on Stein's record label, Animal Records.

In 1991 the album was remastered by Mike Reese which included one bonus track "Pain And Suffering" recording from the original Blank Tape Studio sessions, and used in the 1983 film Rock & Rule.

In 2003 the remaster was reissued as a double disc which included a concert recording from 28 October 1982 at the Masonic Temple Theater in Toronto, during Iggy's 1982 Breaking Point tour.
