Hope you've been saving up! Record Store Day is upon us, with music-loving fans around the world getting set to scoop up all sorts of great specialty releases tomorrow (April 21). There are a lot of solid vinyl offerings to choose from (and yes, some cassettes too), so many that it may be hard to keep track of everything coming out. With that in mind, we're keeping all you hard rock and metal-loving fans out there covered with a guide to what to look for.

Some of the bigger offerings that will be available through all stores include a cassette version of the AC/DC classic Back in Black. Another classic disc getting some love is Whitesnake's 1987 self-titled release, with the 30th anniversary edition now available as a vinyl picture disc.

You've got rarities sets from Disturbed (The Lost Children) and Evanescence (Lost Whispers) that will be available in vinyl LP form. Stone Sour serve up the Hydrograd Acoustic Sessions, and the Ramones take you inside the Sundragon Sessions. Living Colour take you back to their early days with Live at CBGB's 12.19.89 on double LP. If classic live offerings are your thing, check out Iggy Pop's Live at the Ritz, NYC 1986. And also live on vinyl are Linkin Park with the more modern One More Light Live and Rage Against the Machine's Live at the Democratic National Convention 2000 release. Plus, you've got iconic acts like Jimi Hendrix, Led Zeppelin and MC5 all are offering vinyl singles.

There are certain Record Store Day offerings that will only be offered as limited releases or are regionally specific, so you might have to dig a little harder to find them. Among these are Motorhead's 7" picture disc of "Heroes," AWOLNATION's Live in Vienna 7" vinyl offering, Morbid Angel's Kingdoms Disdained picture disc and more.

And finally there is a collection of Record Store Day "firsts," meaning that these specialty items are being offered in their format specifically for Record Store Day before being issued elsewhere. So be among the first to claim Soundgarden's A-Sides on double-LP vinyl, the Twin Peaks limited event series soundtrack on double-LP vinyl, Def Leppard's Live at Abbey Road as a 12" single or The Police's "Roxanne" as a 7" picture disc.
