Maximum Rocknroll Quits Print

by The Editors on January 15, 2019

Seriously. This is something we never thought would happen. And it has pretty much nothing to do with snowboarding, surfing, and even skateboarding. But, the dirty, inky, packed punk rawk ‘zine Maximum Rocknroll is shutting down their presses after 42 years (and 400 issues) covering DIY punk and hardcore music. We probably haven’t read it in 20 years, but it’s still kind of of sad (maybe not to Green Day). Here’s MMR’s explanation.

It is with heavy hearts that we are announcing the end of Maximum Rocknroll as a monthly print fanzine. There will be three more issues of the fanzine in its current format; later in 2019 we will begin publishing record reviews online alongside our weekly radio show. Readers can look forward to more online content, updates regarding the archive project initiated in 2016, and other yet-to-be-announced MRR projects, as well as new ways for punks around the world to get involved. We will be having a public meeting at 2:00pm on Sunday, January 20 at the MRR compound to discuss the future — please write mrr@maximumrocknroll.com for details.

Seriously? Who looks forward to online content these days? Anyone? Thought not. Guess it’s almost time to get inky again.
