Ripped & Torn is a fanzine from Glascow, Scotland.

The first issue appeared in November 1976. Ripped & Torn was one of the first generation of fanzines to emerge from the UK punk scene. The cut and paste zine covered bands such as as Generation X, The Damned, Raped, Jonathon Richmond and Only Ones. Also included are items such as a photo spread on Derek Jarman's film Jubilee and a New York Dolls poster. The zine was put together by Tony D. with help from Skid Desade and Grant McNally.

Tony D. says, "Already you can hear the shrieks of the old rich as they realize they've been made redundant by the energy-ridden bands who work out of necessity in cheap clubs with lousy P.A.'s". Ripped & Torn announces itself on the cover as "the first Scottish punk mag written by fans...for fans".
