“We shake our heads with quiet contempt”

Sound the Sirens Magazine is an online publication whose editors came of age during the mid-90s punk explosion. We apply an irreverent lens to the pop culture of today. From blockbuster movies to current lifestyle trends, Sound the Sirens is not afraid to question the status quo and embrace subculture views and attitudes as we explore what it means to be counterculture in the digital age.  


Sound the Sirens Magazine was founded in 2001 as a punk/hardcore music magazine. In the early days of online music/film/culture magazines, we shared space amongst the most frequented and trusted sources for reviews, interviews, and features.
