The first issue of Dump Your Punk Rock Boyfriend was published in 1995 in Eugene, Oregon as well as St. Augustine, Florida. It originally produced a new issue every 6 months, then later was published whenever the two felt there was story to tell until co-editor and writer Joel (Jolt) Rossi died in 1999. Dump Your Punk Rock Boyfriend covered very little of the local music scenes, but instead focused more on absurd true stories and ex girlfriends from O'Shea and Rossi. The zine also featured guest writers, such John Jughead Peirson of Screeching Weasel, Chris Barrows of Pink Lincolns and Jason Irritation of NotaPartofIt who did almost the entire special comic issue. The final issue, came in 1999 and was a collection of issues 1-4, with some of O'Shea's Jersey Beat columns and the final piece by Rossi. These zines are all long out of print.
