Chunklet #17 cover

Chunklet is a music and humor zine published by Henry H. Owings of Atlanta, GA. It is known for its derisive criticism and satirical tone.

An outrageously harsh appraisal of a band will often run in close proximity to an ad for that band's latest album.

Contributors have included Emerson Dameron and Andrew Earles.

Popular features have included an inventory of the "Top 100 Assholes in Rock" (formatted to resemble a Billboard chart) and a directory of "overrated" albums. The latter spawned The Overrated Book, published in 2006 and comprised mostly of excerpts from the zine.
