Music zines feature heavily in the London College of Communication, UAL Library Zine Collection. From the original punk fanzines of the 1970s, through to the indie and alternative zines of the subsequent five decades, zines continue to be vital in providing bands and fans a means to share their music and express their ideas and opinions. The DIY ethos and aesthetic of punk subculture continues to influence and empower today.
