The publisher of Rolling Stone Magazine, Jann Wenner, called himself “the spokesman” for the youth of America. 1968 was an extremely influential year for cultural and social change. The purpose of this research is to show how Rolling Stone magazine covers represented the youth generation during 1968. I analyzed the Rolling Stone magazine covers and cover stories from the year 1968 and categorized the topics found. Sex, drugs and rock n roll appeared most often on the cover, therefore reflecting the social and cultural changes happening during that decade. The Rolling Stone magazine covers from the year 1968 strongly predict the values and priorities of the youth generation of America during that time.
