The first issue appeared in 1984. Bullshit Monthly covered the New York City hardcore punk scene. By the 1990's 24 issues had been released and the editor was happy to note that he had not charged more than fifty cents for any of those issues. Later issues included the byline "Proud to be gay owned and operated" and Mike was also happy that, despite the apparent homophobia in the New York hardcore scene, he had not sold any less issues than he had before the notice was introduced.
Mike Bullshit was also the lead singer of the New York hardcore band GO!. They played regularly at ABC No Rio and released a number of EPs. For a time, Mike was also a regular columnist for Maximum Rock 'N' Roll.
