The magazine was launched in 1983 by publisher Mark Suppanz and has been in publication ever since, making it one of the longest-running independent music and pop culture magazines in the United States. Pop Culture Press has its headquarters in Austin, Texas.

Over the years, the magazine has covered a number of notable musicians, writers, and entertainers, including David Bowie, Nick Cave, Tom Waits, Leonard Cohen, R.E.M., and Johnny Cash, among others. Pop Culture Press aims to provide an alternative perspective on popular culture, with reviews and articles that take a critical approach to mainstream media.

Pop Culture Press has occasionally produced themed issues, including a special issue dedicated to the work of Hunter S. Thompson, an issue focused on the films of Alfred Hitchcock, and an issue of essays on censorship and freedom of speech.

The magazine has received critical acclaim for its writing and editorial standards, with music critic Robert Christgau calling it "admirable for its persuasiveness and its choices". The magazine has also been recognized for its longevity and contributions to music and popular culture journalism.{{Categories}}
