Guardians of the Galaxy revives the cassette tape


Come and get your love!

Guardians of the Galaxy, which had one of the best soundtracks in recent memory and was he biggest hit of 2014 (domestically), will have its soundtrack released on cassette tape.

The soundtrack, which features amazing artists like the Jackson 5, Redbone, and The Runaways, will be the first thing released on cassette tape in well over a decade. The last cassette tape produced was 2003's "Classic Disney: 60 Years of Magical Music", which featured songs from Disney's most popular films, like Aladdin, The Lion King, The Little Mermaid, and Cinderella.

The cassette tape will be released on November 17th and is expected to have an extremely limited run. It'll only be available at independent retailers associated with Record Store Day, which means two things: they'll sell out quickly, and you should buy me one.

This is the second piece of vintage technology that Guardians of the Galaxy has made popular again, the first being Peter Quill's Walkman. The Sony Walkman TPS-L2, which you should totally buy to complete your Star-Lord cosplay, currently sells anywhere from $300-$500. Closer to the film's theatrical release, several auctions on eBay sold for well over a thousand dollars.

The Guardians of the Galaxy soundtrack will be available as long as supplies last (which should be roughly two hours or so) or until December 31st, whichever comes first.

Guardians of the Galaxy will be released digitally on November 18th, then on DVD and Blu-Ray on December 9th.
