Black Friday and Record Store Day are two very different holidays. Where Black Friday is about finding the cheapest deals at the most convenient place, Record Store Day is all about shopping locally at independent stores.

Now, in an attempt to get more people to support their local record stores, RSD is coming at us with more exclusive releases, and we couldn’t be more excited. Check out some of the releases hitting shelves Nov. 23 below as well as the full list here.

1. BABYMETAL – “Distortion” (2000 copies)

A single from earlier this year, “Distortion” is a song that kicks ass. With only 2,000 copies of this 12-inch vinyl featuring a studio version and Download Festival performance, this single from BABYMETAL is definitely on our wish list this Black Friday.

2. Ramones – Live In Glasgow December 19, 1977

This double LP is a Record Store Day exclusive with an unknown amount of copies. It marks the first time the multi-track recording of the Ramones’ Apollo Centre gig is available. The recording happened just a few days prior to recording their classic live album It’s Alive.

3. The Smashing Pumpkins – Shiny And Oh So Bright, Vol. 1/LP: No Past. No Future. No Sun.

 

It hasn’t been revealed how many pressings there are of the Smashing Pumpkins’ release. All we know is that it’s a picture disc, a record store day first and we want it.

4. Joan Jett – Bad Reputation (Music From The Original Motion Picture) (3000 copies)

This Joan Jett documentary soundtrack is something every punk-rock vinyl lover needs in their collection. Thankfully, you can finally get it this Friday.

5. Rage Against The Machine – Live & Rare (5000 copies)

Rage Against The Machine only released this collection of tracks in Japan in 1997, marking this 2018 release as the first time they’re being pressed into vinyl. We need this new album like we need air. More importantly, we need it on vinyl.

6. Twiztid – splitinthispaint (1000 copies)

A reissue from 1988, you might not recognize any of the artists featured on this album. However, what you will recognize are the classic songs such as “I Wan’na Be Like You” from The Jungle Book and “Cruella De Vil” from 101 Dalmations.

9. Weezer – “Africa” (Shaped Picture Disc Vinyl) (3000 copies)


“Africa” was the surprise classic meme hit of 2018. Best of all was Weezer’s cover, which actually charted. Now, you can commemorate the year with a picture disc vinyl shaped like Africa.

10. Judas Priest – Rocka Rolla (2400 copies)
