Rolling Stone is a US-based print magazine and media company that focus on popular music industry. RS reviewed five of Harry Chapin's albums and published a few articles about his various activities. The album reviews generally panned Chapin's work while focusing on his story songs for the most criticism, which for his fans and others in the media were what made him unique. The magazine has been kinder to Chapin after he passed away.

As of 2010 most of the archived content is now only available as paid content at the official Rolling Stone website www.rollingstone.com. Two other Chapin fan sites: The Harry Chapin Archive at www.harrychapin.com and Short Stories at www.halashby.co.uk/chapin have archived copies of many articles. Also, Howie Fields, Harry's drummer, runs a business known as RockPaper which sells back issues of Rolling Stone Magazine.

Rolling Stone has also lent it's name to theme-based compilation releases. Cat's in the Cradle was included on two of these compilations.
