It's the most wonderful time of the year — Record Store Day is upon us!

Record Store Day will return for two dates — June 12 and July 17— with hundreds of exclusive vinyls sold at your favorite independent record shops.

On Wednesday (April 7), Record Store Day announced the full list of every artist and band taking part in this year's festivities and the offerings are incredible.

Pearl Jam, Linkin Park, Rage Against the Machine, The Cranberries, The Rolling Stones, AC/DC, St. Vincent, Amy Winehouse, Wolf Alice, and more are just a handful of artists with special releases planned for the two-day event.

Last year, RSD was forced to celebrate a little differently because of the COVID-19 pandemic and stretched the event over three days with many titles being released online.

While the country still recovers from the pandemic this year should look a little bit how RSD used to be — aka waking up early and shopping IRL — but the organization recommends checking in with your local record store for shopping policies.

On June 12 fans can expect the following (and more) to be released:

AC/DC: "Through The Mists Of Time"/ "Witches Spell" 12″ Vinyl Single
