From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia:

The New Musical Express (better known as the NME) is a music magazine in the UK which has been published weekly since March 1952. It was the first British paper to include a music chart which first appeared in the 14 November 1952 edition. The NME has managed to reflect the musical taste of each decade, though the magazine's heyday was during the 1970s when it became the best selling British music magazine, acquiring a reputation for the quality, intelligence and originality of its journalism. During the period 1972 to 1976 it was particularly associated with Gonzo journalism, then became closely associated with punk music through the writings of Tony Parsons and Julie Burchill.
