Dirt was an American lifestyle magazine targeting young men.[1] The magazine was launched in 1991[2] by Andy Jenkins, Spike Jonze, and Mark Lewman.[3] Lewman, who served as editor-in-chief, said of the debut issue:

We're all about sports, music, movies, girls and junk food. We combine these topics with current events, celebrity quotes and true-life stories like our current profile of a Los Angeles gang member recently released from prison. We're mostly about a boy's basic concerns-with hard-edged pieces mixed in. ... Most of the stereotypes about guys are just wrong. I don't know any Bills and Teds.[2]

Dirt later became part of Lang Communications[1] and was headquartered in Seattle, Washington.[2] The magazine folded in 1994.[1]
