The recent Rolling Stone / Obama flap reminded me that I used to subscribe to Rolling Stone during the late 70's and early 80's. That got me thinking about other publications I used to devour. Although I have little interest in print mags now (I read tons online), here's a chronological list of the ones that I read on a regular basis back in the day:

Heavy Metal
National Lampoon
Hit Parader
Rolling Stone
Trouser Press
Sound Choice

Disclosure: fully aware this is of no interest to anyone but me.
