{{#invoke:Infobox|infobox}} New Musical Express (NME) is a British music journalism magazine published since March 1952. It is largely associated with rock, alternative and indie music. It was the first British paper to include a singles chart, in the edition of 14 November 1952. In the 1970s it became the best-selling British music newspaper. During the period 1972 to 1976, it was particularly associated with gonzo journalism (self-involved reporting), then became closely associated with punk rock through the writings of Julie Burchill, Paul Morley and Tony Parsons. It started as a music newspaper, and gradually moved toward a magazine format during the 1980s and 1990s, changing from newsprint in 1998.

An online version of NME,, was launched in 1996. It became the world's biggest standalone music site, with over seven million users per month.{{ safesubst:#invoke:Unsubst||date=__DATE__ |$B= {{#invoke:Category handler|main}}{{#invoke:Category handler|main}}[citation needed] }} The magazine's paid circulation in the first half of 2014 was 15,830, and has been in long-term decline.<ref name="mediaweek">{{#invoke:citation/CS1|citation |CitationClass=news }}</ref> Due to continuing poor sales, the magazine will be given away for free from September 2015.<ref name="NailCoffin">{{#invoke:citation/CS1|citation |CitationClass=news }}</ref>
