- Rip debuted its first issue on December 1986. It was a 1980's/early 1990s Music magazine commonly seen in newsstands and purchased by mostly teenage readers. It was created by Larry Flynt Publications, effectively making it a sister publication of Hustler magazine. Lonn P Friend was editor. RIP was a typical Music fan magazine in the vein of Metal Edge, Circus and Hit Parader, although RIP had a wider focus, featuring Thrash, Punk, Speed-Metal and Death Metal bands along with the typical Pop-Rock and Glam bands of the day. It featured news, interviews, celebrity columns, pictures and centerfolds. Another one of its more unusual features was an occasional quiz on the history of various genres of rock, such as punk, glam or grunge.
