EXCLUSIVE: Check Out Paramore's Smashing Record Store Day Release

Get a peek at the 'Ain't It Fun' single.

Usually sounding like a broken record is considered a bad thing. Not so with Paramore's Record Store Day release, which was designed to look like smashed vinyl. MTV News has the photo of that sure-to-be-coveted piece of plastic.

"The Paramore 'Ain't It Fun' 12' was designed by Hayley [Williams]," Record Store Day founder Michael Kurtz told MTV News. "And, essentially, it looks like somebody broke the record. That was the picture she drew for the label and they figured out a way to do it."

I'm not exactly sure how the record will play, but it does look strikingly similar to the logo of Brooklyn punk band The So So Glos, so perhaps Paramore could give them some tips for future releases.


"Ain't It Fun" comes off of the band's 2013 self-titled record.

Paramore are long-time Record Store Day participants; the band released a special edition record in the shape of a hibiscus flower titled The Holiday Sessions in 2013, and the RSD crew supplied us with some classic snaps from 2008 of the band rocking out in-store.


Record Store Day goes down in stores across the world on April 19 with releases from a bevy of indie and big bands alike — including the likes of One Direction, who are releasing a tricked-out picture disc for the occasion.

While you're waiting to get your hands on that jagged vinyl, Paramore is currently squaring off against American Authors in our Musical March Madness tournament, so we suggest you get voting.
