We’re celebrating NME’s 60th birthday this week. To mark the occasion, we’re asking our lovely Twitter followers to send us photos of them holding up their favourite ever issue of the magazine. Use the hashtag #nme60. Our Special Birthday Issue comes in eight different collectors’ covers with NME legends such as Patti Smith, Liam and Noel and John Lydon choosing their favourite NME covers and explaining why. Check out the history of NME timeline on our Facebook.
The issue also includes a 16-part centrefold of the first ever issue from 1952. It’s pretty special. Watch stars such as Natasha Khan and Major Lazer wish us a happy birthday in this video
