I let my subscription lapse 5 or 6 yrs ago after more than a dozen years as a subscriber and have by no means regretted that decision.
Without reading the Lindsay Lohan article, I'm sure there'll be some point where she says something along the lines of how "its gross that these old men think of me in sexual terms" yet she poses for a cover like this with the caption "Hot, Ready and Legal"...just like Alicia Silverstone complained about perverted men in a magazine where she was on the cover in ruffly pink panties years ago.
I'm sure Hilary Duff and all her (musical) talents will be adorning a cover in the coming months.

The word 'legal' is really quite disturbing for a magazine of such standing.

I don't get Lindsay Lohan. If I was a 45 year old man with a boob fetish, then maybe I would.

As a lifetime lover of RS, I don't have a problem with the latest cover. This is their Hot List issue, not their Hot Music List issue. Like any publication, they have to stoop in the Internet age to sell more copies, and as Lindsay Lohan is mega-popular, I could care less - the music industry coverage and political exposes are just as good, no matter who is on the cover. RS isn't just about Music, it has become about all aspects of the entertainment industry. Hell, I don't even like some of the musicians (when they feature them) they put on the cover -- but the mag, in my opinion is just as good - even if this is a special "Hot" issue.

I agree with you. Even though a lot of the time the bands I like are not in the cover I still like RS. It's a good read.

I'm in the 'I still read and enjoy RS camp'. I can't always afford to buy it but luckily it is available at my local library.

I hope that everyone who is commenting about RS takes the time to read the article about the treatment of Iraqi prisoners instead of just commenting on Ms Lohan.

Well, Lindsay DOES sing...apparently...if you're into that sort of stuff...which I would hope Rolling Stone wouldn't be, but look at what I'm saying. Ha. Rolling Stone. I hate you...yet I must read you...because sometimes you mention Ryan, and I need to clip for my scrapbook. Damn you.

I have recently discovered a brand new magazine that is a good alternative to Rolling Stone. It's called Tracks (they subtitle it "Music Built To Last"). Intelligent articles, great profiles of musicians and reviews that don't make me want to use the mag as toilet paper

http://www.tracksmusic.com

It's pretty new, and consequently only comes out every two months or so, but I am hoping it's successful and they go to a monthly format.

I prefer listening to music instead of reading about it anyway

I never read magazines ever. That's what the internet is for.
