A Collection of Vintage Punk Magazine Covers [NSFW]

Collecting stacks and stacks of strange, raunchy, violent and culturally relevant magazines from the ’50s to the ’80s, Tom Brinkmann has amassed one spectacular treasure trove. Published as Bad Mags, one particular slice of his incredible collection, spotted by Dangerous Minds, is relevant to our interests. Ah, punksploitation. From the music mags and tabloids that tapped the pulse of the late ’70s punk scene like Punk and The New York Rocker to the sleazy nudie rags that cashed in on the punk subculture as a fetish, they run quite the gamut. The old covers with Blondie, Iggy Pop, Patti Smith, and Johnny Rotten are as fascinating as those of fetishistic, stylized (albeit, questionable in their authenticity) pin-ups, so here’s a mixed stack for you to peruse. Check out Bad Mags for plenty more!
