The Times They Are A-Changin’ – Pope Francis Graces The Cover Of Rolling Stone Magazine

The first Pope to ever make the front cover of the iconic rock magazine.


Making the Rolling Stone magazine’s front cover has been the pinnacle moment in many musician’s career. The next issue’s front cover, which will hit the stands this Friday, is a sure sign that The Times They Are A-Changin’

The first Pope to ever grace the front cover of the famous publication, Pope Francis proves that he has well and truly carved out his mark in pop culture.

Mark Binelli travelled to Rome for the extensive 7,700 word piece on the exploration of the Pope’s “modern revolution”.

In the article, which is titled after Bob Dylan’s hit album, The Times They Are A-Changin’, Mark explains just how different Pope Francis is to his predecessor, Benedict, comparing his like-ability and appeal to that of Bill Clinton.


From TIME’s ‘Person of the Year’, to the Rolling Stones front cover, Pope Francis is proving to be one popular guy right across the masses.

This issue has us singing the famous Dylan classic, so we thought we’d share it for everyone to enjoy.

All together now, “oh the times they are a changin'”.
