Kerrang Target Audience Kerrang is a U.K music magazine and are published by Bauer Consumer Media. The magazine is sold weekly and it mainly focuses on general rock music and features artists like Linkin Park, Slipknot, 30 seconds to mars etc. Because of the artist featured the main audience are young adults (often aged between 20-30 years) since compared to most rock music there artist music is rather tame and not as hardcore as other bands like AC/DC or Disturbed. The magazine's name is quiet funny because it is onomatopoeic and refers to the sound made when playing a power chord on an electric guitar. Kerrang is very successful magazine since they sell an average of 41,125 units per month due to having very popular artist on the front cover and offering gig tickets and band posters inside. 4.
