Against Me! – Reinventing Axl Rose (28th Press)

Posted: October 29, 2010 in Vinyl

Reinventing Axl Rose, without a doubt, is the longest running pressing of any album from the last decade. It is constantly being re-pressed and has never gone OOP and most likely never will. It has been pressed on just about every possible color, pattern and color combination imaginable. The record is currently in its 35th pressing as of May 2012. It has been re-pressed so much that the original plates wore out and it had to be re-mastered for vinyl. As of the 32nd pressing, which was released in March 2011, you get a copy from the re-mastering. I will not even begin to list to pressing info for this record or attempt to distinguish between the many shades of No Idea grey, purple, and mush. You can to No Idea’s site to see the entire pressing info for Reinventing Axl Rose, the catalog number is NIR129.

I will say, however, that I have a copy from the 28th pressing released in January 2010. It’s on 180 gram black vinyl, which is limited to 200 copies. This pressing is not the first time the record has been pressed on 180 gram black though, and it probably won’t be the last time either as in the past No Idea has re-pressed this record on the same colors used from previous pressings.
