Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure Vinyl LP: No Way! Way!

Way before The Matrix, Point Break, Speed, and John Wick, Keanu Reeves did the ’80s proud with Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure. I loved that movie, and true fans will be glad to get hands on a this collectible vinyl LP that has surfaced over at ThinkGeek.

In true ’80s fashion, the record is made from pink and blue vinyl. Keep in mind that this record isn’t filled with the rock and metal songs you might recall from the flick. This disc features the original score conducted by David Newman. That means it’s mostly the music that played in the background during the film. There are 22 tracks total and the record spans 37 minutes.

It may not include bands with names like Extreme, Shark Island, Big Pig, or Power Tool, but it still looks pretty awesome. Get yours for $24.99 at ThinkGeek.
