Your Flesh is a zine founded by Bob Mould (Hüsker Dü), Ron Clark, and Peter Davis in 1981. Davis acquired the rights to it for $100.

The first issue was limited to 50 copies, photocopied and stapled. By 1987, the magazine boasted full color covers. For a while, it was published in Seattle by Fantagraphics Books.

Early issues of Your Flesh were devoted to the hardcore-punk community, with articles on bands like Die Kreuzen, Discharge, MDC, DOA, and, of course, Hüsker Dü. In the late-1980's and early 1990's, Your Flesh charted the growth of what came to be known as "grunge."

Over time, the zine expanded its coverage beyond music to focus on other aspects of "fringe culture," including underground comics and literature (which it termed "outlaw art").

Later issues were perfect bound, averaging 120 pages in length.
