    April will be the month of the Foo! The Foo Fighters will release their new studio album Wasting Light on April 12th, and then, a mere four days later, the band will release a covers album in honor of 2011's Record Store Day, which is Saturday, April 16th. The album is titled Medium Rare and it will feature covers of songs such as Pink Floyd's "Have a Cigar," Cream's "I Feel Free" and Paul McCartney and Wings' "Band on the Run." Additionally, Medium Rare will be released on vinyl April 16th, as well.

    I bet kids 18 and under are thinking, "Vinyl? What's vinyl?" and wondering why people would go to a RECORD STORE to shop! Because that's what the cool, in-the-know kids did two decades ago! Yay Record Store Day!

    Are you going to shop in a record store on April 16th to celebrate record store day, kiddies? I am.
