Maximum Rocknroll is a monthly print magazine dedicated to international punk and hardcore. Based in San Francisco, it has been continuously published since 1982. All work is donated and no one receives any salary. All proceeds are either invested in technological improvements or go to other similarly-minded not-for-profit projects. Anyone is welcome to reprint anything from MRR, but only if it is not-for-profit.
