For 47 years, music fans have looked to Rolling Stone as the primary source for edgy and flamboyant reporting that pushes limits and goes where no other publication dares. The articles are always challenging and thought-provoking, but it’s their bold and often-controversial covers that are forever burned into our memory.

From outlandish illustrations to stark portraits, these images comment on sensitive subjects like presidential elections, terrorism, drugs, and (of course) nudity. They’ve put the nails on the “good girl” coffins of stars like Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera and Miley Cyrus. They’ve pinned rap superstars Kanye West and 50 Cent against each other, and sexualized teen shows like Glee and Gossip Girl.

It had all the emotional trappings of a funeral, just with better music. But now, with Phish reunited and playing better than ever and Trey’s demons healed, I feel grateful to have been there. It was a cathartic and emotional – a fandom hitting rock bottom en masse. Below I revisit five moments from Phish’s “final” show that I’ll never be able to shake.
