One of the most surprising things to come back into style is vinyl records. In 2020, 27.5 million LPs were sold in the United States, up 46 percent compared to 2019 and more than 30-fold compared to 2006 when the vinyl comeback began. Even if vinyl records aren’t as convenient as listening to music with streaming apps, their resilience in a digital world is something to admire. With the popularity of vinyl records, it makes sense that they have their own day to celebrate record stores: Record Store Day (RSD).
