Advertising with Maximum Rocknroll doesn’t just support us—it allows us to support you. Our reputation as the “Bible of Punk” means that our thousands of readers worldwide rely on us to keep them in the know. There’s no better way to let the punk world know what you’re about than with an ad in MRR.

We only accept ads from bands, labels, distributors, and publishers that we would cover in our reviews sections. Other types of advertisers we take on a case-by-case basis. We reserve the right to refuse any ad and will refund your fee. New advertisers, please contact us first, before sending an ad or payment.
