We Have Reached Peak Vinyl

We first posed the question in 2015, and wondered if it happened earlier this year, but now we have definitive confirmation: we have reached peak vinyl. The milestone comes courtesy of the Black Eyed Peas’ new limited edition Complete Vinyl Collection. How could we not be at peak vinyl when someone thought it fit to bundle all six BEP albums for the price of $229.90? That’s right — “Let’s Get Retarded,” “Smells Like Funk,” “Don’t Phunk With My Heart,” and all the other songs you tried to avoid hearing are coming to 180-gram wax in a black box with a gold foil band logo. The collection drops 9/30. Mazel tov to us all.
