    Nice collection Henry. I have used most, but not all. I particularly enjoy Cheap Stealer and Chicago House.

    Glad you all like them!

    @Chris W. – Those are two of my favorites as well.

    Great list – I also love Barrio 30, http://www.dafont.com/barrio-30.font

  • collide007

    I’ve used many of those fonts already, dafont.com is a great resource.

  • http://dzinerblog.wordpress.com/ Susan

    These are so funky! Thanks for compiling a top-50 list of something that could otherwise be quite overwhelming.

  • http://blog.nburmandesign.com nburman

    Hey nice collection! I hope to use one or two maybe once or twice. You know, in good taste.. hopefully!
    Nah, who am I kidding. The minute I need to make up a music poster I’m slapping one of these things all over it! Yea – rawk n roll.

  • http://www.melgab.co.za enzo

    brilliant resource. any chance of collecting these somewhere as a single zip file? *cough*drop.io*cough* ;]

    I love this free stuff, but I´ve got one question. Why arent there links like “download all” on these posts. I dont mean to be ungratefull, but going to 50 sites and downloading is a lot of work.

    Are there rights issues to this?

    Thanks again.

    • gottalovethefreestuff

      yes, go down to the bottom of the page, it shows download 1-20 then download 21-40 I don’t know where the other 10 are

  • http://www.joe-art.com Joe Myers

    These are great. But what about the work of Eduardo Recife of Misprinted Type? This guy’s a genius and his free fonts are extremely popular.

    Check it out.

    Thanks for the great posts!

  • http://henryjones.us Henry

    @gummisig – That would make it nice for our readers, but it’s important to reward the owners with a link back to their site.

  • http://www.smashbase.com Mike [Smashbase]

    Sadly, I literally have every one of these installed on my computer. lol.

    That said, I obviously think this is a great selection! 😉

  • http://rebelmaker.wordpress.com Ian Hutchinson

    Nice collection, I quite like “Broken Ghost”, its quite grunge but at the same time, quite clean so it has a good range of uses.

    And as I always say, you can never have enough fonts under your belt 😉

    Nice list – would be useful to mark which ones you can use for free for commercial stuff, though!

    Rock on! Hey, I’m new to this. How do I download these fonts to use when creating powerpoints and postcards? Do you know of any animated grunge fonts? Like having the words tweak a little? Like I said, I’m new and don’t quite know my way around yet. Thanks for the collection. I already have a couple of favorites.
