PORK was a music magazine/fanzine created by husband and wife artist team Sean Aaberg and Katie Aaberg in 2010. PORK magazine has been a big catalyst for Weirdo Art and Rock&Roll, with an emphasis on street culture elements like denim, studs, pizza, burgers, switchblades and anti-social behavior. Its roots are in 70s New York City.  It was a free magazine and in circulation between 2010 and 2018.
PORK set out to be "Coney Island in magazine form". Sean Aaberg says that he quit his day job after reading Gene Simmons' biography and set out to create what would eventually become PORK. PORK is named for the play of the same name by Andy Warhol as it is seen by some as the beginning of punk rock.
PORK publishes a wide variety of Weirdo writers and cartoonists. PORK is the home to cartoonists Max Clotfelter, Chico Felix, Bob Gorman, Bobby Madness, Kelly Campanile, , Chase Tail, Mike Kadomikya, Tim Goodyear, Andrew Goldfarb, Tim Root, Ben Lyon and writers Chase Tail, Jake Kelly, Dan Shoup, Jason McKay, Jake Rat, Mykel Board and James Von Sinn.
PORK has interviewed: Dr. Demento, Keith Morris, Derek Riggs, Jason Karn, Jeff Gaither, Kaz, Gary Panter, Charles Krafft, Jay Knapp, Janelle Hessig, Ralph Bakshi, John Holmstrom, Stanley Mouse, Mike Diana, Gavin McInnes, Nobunny, Hunx and his Punx, White Mystery, Shannon and the Clams, Personal and the Pizzas, Ghoul, Meanjeans, Youthbitch, Shane Bugbee and many others.
From its inception until February 2017, PORK regularly incorporated nazi imagery. Beginning in 2017, such images were removed from the magazine as a response to changing "national circumstances", according to an interview with founder Sean Aaberg.
