With Black Friday just around the corner, Record Store Day has revealed the list of 2018 exclusives for its annual event.

This year's batch of Black Friday RSD releases include the first vinyl release of Rage Against the Machine's Live & Rare, a collection of B-Sides from A$AP Ferg, Weezer's troll-fuelled cover of Toto's "Africa" on 10-inch vinyl, and reissues of Todd Rundgren's Something/Anything?, Devo's Q: Are We Not Men? A: We Are Devo! and Talking Heads' Remain In Light.

Artists such as José Gonzalez, Saul Williams and Type O Negative will use the day to reissue catalogue staples celebrating an anniversary. Gonzalez will see his debut LP Veneer come back to wax to celebrate its 15th anniversary, while Williams will celebrate a decade since the release of The Inevitable Rise and Liberation of NiggyTardust!. Type O Negative will mark 25 years of Bloody Kisses with a 3-LP reissue.
