In the 1988 poll, the readers of the magazine voted Bad Religion best band of the year and Suffer best album. Also the third best album cover of 1988 was Suffer and the second biggest asshole of the year was Brian Baker (only surpassed by GG Allin), though he was also voted second best guitarist.
Flipside magazine also features letters sent in by readers.
Issue 32 (July 1982):
The first thing I'd like to say is I think most so called "Punk bands" are total Hypocrites. Takes these little rich boy bands like Bad Religion and Wasted Youth. Here they are yelling about how society sucks and fuck authority and what do they do. They fucken leach off their parents to put out their albums. And then the biggest joke of all is hearing these assholes call other people poseurs. Living in the valley I get to see these types dauly. They live w/their parents in their ritzy houses and pretend to be "Hollywoods".
- Josh, Punk rock music is the only music left w/ real meaning to it
