This didn't matter much to the audience and Magazin became the most popular and most influential music band in Croatia. The band represented Croatia once on Eurovision Song Contests. Other notable Magazin singers after Majda Šoletić include: Mara Marinković, Ljiljana Nikolovska who used to sing in 1980s, Danijela Martinović, Jelena Rozga, Ivana Kovač and Andrea Šušnjara who is the lead singer today. 2) Magazin is a Hungarian pop rock band formed in Százhalombatta in 1985. They released 3 demos, their lineup: Levente Csordás - vocals, Antal "Atom" Csarnoki - guitar, Zsolt Suba - keyboards, László "Hangya" Hangyássy - bass, Attila "Sügér" Molnár - drums. In 1989, they won the "Csillag születik", a well-known talent-seeking show (name means "A Star Is Born"), and they toured in East Germany as well, but after the tour, they split up. Suba and Sügér were forced to enter the army, Csordás moved to the US. The remaining two members, Hangya and Csarnoki, formed the successful hard rock band Sing Sing with Zoltán and Csaba Abaházi, joined by drummer Csaba Tobola from Triton, Csarnoki's other band, which played speed metal.
Interestingly, Sing Sing covered two Magazin songs, Nehéz lehet hősnek lenni and Sírni csak a győztesnek szabad, both of which can be found on Sing Sing's 1990 debut album, Életfogytig Rock 'n Roll. In the 2007 Sing Sing box set "Összezárva '89–'99" (where all Sing Sing albums are available on CD with lots of bonuses), the demos were released as bonuses for "Életfogytig Rock 'n Roll". Later on, Csordás formed the pop/disco band Shygys (pronounced as 'shy guys'), which lasted until the new millenium. Csarnoki left the music scene after the demise of Sing Sing in 1999, Hangya went on managing other bands like Junkies, formed Zero-G and Zorall. On March 31, 2007, Magazin gave a concert in Százhalombatta after almost 18 years of silence, and the demo songs are planned to be recorded by the original lineup. As of May 2008, no news about this appeared since the concert.
