History of Creem

From humble beginnings in post-riot Detroit, and its upward trajectory from underground paper to national powerhouse.

In The Beginning

(1969-1972)

The world feels the first ripples of what happens when you give hippies electric typewriters and free records.

The Golden Years

(1973-1978)

It was the dawn of a new era, and CREEM became the rock 'n' roll bible of little booger-eating twerps everywhere.

The New Wave

(1979-1986)

Robust national distribution doesn't mean the boring mainstream. Punk, new wave, hip-hop, and indie rock rise up.
