After a dispute with another magazine about advertising, World Industries owner, Steve Rocco started Big Brother. While Thrasher was about "Skate and Destroy," Big Brother simply did not give a fuck. With articles about how to kill yourself, bong reviews, and nudity, Big Brother pushed the boundaries. Even in format, the magazine tried new things like sending the magazine to subscribers in a cereal box or changing the size or binding of the actual magazine. After being purchased by Larry Flynt Publications in 1997, the smut was toned down, but the irreverence was still there. Production ceased in 2004.
