If you’re in your thirties or forties, you likely grew up listening to CDs. You’re probably well aware of the major gamble you’d take by plopping down $20 on an album based on that one song you heard on the radio. Sometimes you’d hit the jackpot (Linkin Park’s Hybrid Theory, I’m looking your way), while other times (ahem, St. Anger), you basically just lit a $20 bill on fire. And if you had a portable CD player, listening to music on your headphones was nearly impossible if your player wasn’t shock resistant. Awwww, the memories. The CD wasn’t perfect, but it was definitely a big part of my childhood.

Sadly, the Compact Disc has been dying a slow death for years. And it looks like we’re seeing yet another development in that happening.

Best Buy had already announced that it’s phasing out CD sales, but it just took another step towards CDs vanishing from their stores forever.

Minnesota Best Buys have reportedly moved its collection of CDs into $5.99 bargain bins, meaning music fans can find major albums for dirt-cheap prices. So if you’re still proudly hanging on to that CD player, you may want to head to Best Buy to see what hidden gems you can find – before it’s too late.

Get ‘em while they’re hot!
