Name your favorite music mag - Page 2

post #16 of 23
...my personal fave would have to be Metal Maniacs - easily found, yet covers a wide variety of metal, instead of just crappy, flavour-of-the-month Adidas rock.

other faves:
MaximumRockNRoll
Under The Volcano
Motion Sickness
Chronicles Of Chaos e-zine
Aversion online

seems like Kerrang! went downhill yrs ago ... it's not much different from mags like Circus or Metal Edge (yeeech) these days...

Never a true word more spoken The same applies to Metal Hammer unfortunatly

There used to be a really good rock mag called Raw out a bout 5 or 6 years ago, went down hill and then stopped printing, shame really cause in its heyday it was superb!

I used to thumb through Circus Magazine when I was practically a toddler - hey, I needed my updates on Ratt, Kiss, and Quiet Riot back then. I stopped reading it when they featured Bon Jovi. bleccchh! (IMHO heh heh). Kerrang! seems very mainstream but I haven't read it all that much. I must say that Spin is absolute dogsh!t these days after picking up the May issue. There's lots of @sswipe in there but not much reading. Then there's Rolling Stone - zzzzz. Billboard is OK. Its a shame because I thought American music was getting out of its post grunge lull. Somebody wake up their journalists.

"And that goes for all you punks in the press
That want to start sh** by printin' lies
Instead of the things we said
That means you
Andy Secher at Hit Parader
Circus Magazine
Mick Wall at Kerrang
Bob Guccione Jr; at Spin,
what you pissed off cuz your dad gets more
P**** than you?
F*** you!
Suck my f***in' d***.

You be rippin' off the f***in' kids
while they be payin' their hard earned
money to read about the bands
they want to know about
Printin' lies startin controversy
You wanta antagonize me
Anatagonize me motherf***er
Get in the ring motherf***er
And I'll kick your bitchy little a**
Punk"

Name the Group/Album/Song

Sorry about the almost-profanities in there. I think this song is pretty cool for the fact that it doesn't suck up to journalists, but tells the truth instead.

hahaha - Guns N' Roses letting loose on "Get In The Ring" from Use Your Illusion 2.

...think that's the first thing you commit to memory when you get that album - or is that just me and my fellow losers??

Downbeat is the one I usually read although it's been a while. Wired magazine usually has some esoteric picks. I used to subscribe to RS, but not for a looong time. Lately it's been mostly ezines:

haha, pitch fork media is hardcore about music. it's interesting to read but they are so critical its funny.

If you live in Australia, pick up Juice magazine, they are like pitch fork also, and is a very good mag.

Heh, it's a great song isn't it? I love it, it always gets me in a good mood for some reason. Wonder why the press always seem to paint it out to be the low-point of the album though?
