America's only rock 'n roll magazine returns from the dead - in print & digital - Creem Magazine

Creem Magazine 2022 first issue logo
Creem covered music in ways the other magazines of my childhood simply couldn't. They were honest in the scariest way possible. Reality is frightening and Creem did it best!
Creem Magazine 2022 first issue cover Coming back in 2022!!

At first it was a merch site and I stocked up on logo'd tees and Boy Howdy stuff over the last year. Memories came rushing back for the magazine I adored as a child. Reading Creem made me feel like a rebel. An informed rebel. So gritty and raw. Music never had a more honest voice and I soaked it all up.

I'd ride my bike to the corner 7-Eleven for a Slurpee, Skateboarder mag, and Creem. It was the late 70s and I'd discovered skating and music. What a time to be alive!

This passion never eft me. Decades later, long after Creem had shuttered - merch showed up an an Instagram account. I bought shirts and reveled in memories. In mid 2022, word of a Creem Magazine resurrection brewed. What could it be?

Coming back in September - get you subs in soonest - as an oversize mag, Creem is making a return in two ways. The quarterly print issues and digital. I love print and magazines in particular, so that was a no-brainer, but the digital offering for a meager $5 per month, is the gold.

As I understand it, you can peruse the entirety of the Creem library from beginning to end! That Is worth gold! I could easily get lost in back issues dedicated to my favorite bands. I'm really looking forward to this subscription.
