Who Put The Bomp was a rock music fanzine edited and published by Greg Shaw from 1970 to 1979. Its name came from the hit 1961 doo-wop song by Barry Mann, "Who Put the Bomp". Later the name was shortened to "Bomp!".
Shaw was one of the first and best known rock fanzine editors. Active in science fiction fandom as a young man, he became familiar with fanzines. Shaw founded one of the earliest rock fanzines, the mimeographed "Mojo Navigator and Rock 'n Roll News" in 1966. "Bomp!" was an early publishing venue for many subsequently well-known writers, including Lester Bangs and Greil Marcus.
