T.I. one of the best rappers in the game hand down, he is in the top five

With the unity and diversity they bring to our ears in the music industry, they must be big

22XL Recordings

Geffen, is an amazing Rock label! Nirvana, Aerosmith, Guns N' Roses, Blink-182, Weezer, Papa Roach. There's so much more, I honestly believe it's the best record company ever created! Oh and there's Elton John, John Lennon, Eagles... No big deal, right?

Good Bands and Artists were signed Nirvana, both Rob Zombie and his original band White Zombie, and many others.

They also signed Guns N' Roses. - waterboy51

How could you go wrong with a label that had The Police, Styx, and Bryan Adams?

25Se7enth Fury Grammaton Records

This has got to be one of the most exciting labels around! They're not afraid to support the newcomer, and that gets a 10 from me!

Great releases on this label!

Awesome label. good luck on getting to the top ten!

Best label for Electronic Music ever!

Shania TWain. This is really my only reason. Ha. Love her. And they signed her... When Canada wouldn't.


Anti-records is the only TRUE independent label on this list. The other indie labels on this list have parent companies. Anti-records is also the only label on this list that gives their artist 100% creative control.

Creative control is the blood of an artist

28Fearless Records

Also is the label that does punk goes... And signed the best rock bands around

Best for bands such as Of Mice and Men, Mayday Parade, Pierce the Veil and many more.

29Dominion Worldwide Entertainment

The newest and best label out with artist like Locust, Her Majesty, Real $ Money, Ben G, Big Rich and K.O.G.W.

They are taking the game to a whole new level! Soon Dominion Worldwide Entertainment will be a household name.

#1 Hands down. Best artist, production and promotions. Shout to Big Rich... Looking for that New Real $ Money and Her Majesty CD

Excellent Work! Full support

31Cash Money

This record label is the prettiest label I've ever seen. I am infatuated with it. By far the most beautiful record label on Earth by the greatest band of all time.

33Spinnin' Records

Best label for electronic music

I love house music, keep up the good work!

It all starts with good music.

Many music without vocals

34Death Row Records

One of the only universally recognizable record labels in the world. This label WAS 90s hip-hop. The death of Tupac ended the major success, but for the short time it was big, it was the best

Tupac, dr. dre, snoop dogg, nate dogg, MC Hammer etc.
750$ mil sales, 150mil albums sales less than a decade, can't top that. Most successful label.

35Bad Boy Records

Bad Boy Records is also the official home of Dream (a fairly popular artist made up of 4 cute girls). - playstationfan66

Biggie smalls is enough to prove it's a good label, despite its recent decline

36GOOD Music
37Sumerian Records

Maybe, the best in their genre

38Nuclear Blast

I'm just curious to how a label can be #36 on a list with the following bands: Slayer, Hammerfall, Nightwish, Sabaton, Anthrax, Iron Maiden, Kreator, Epica, Sonata Arctica, Soulfly, Dimmu Borgir, Behemoth, Sepultura, BLACK SABBATH, Immortal, Children of Bodom, Amon Amarth, Blind Guardian, Motörhead, ACDC, Meshugga AND Metallica, to name a few. How is this not number one?

I love nuclear blast, they have a lot of the metal bands that are not giants, such as Metallica and slayer, but still pretty well known. Some examples are enslaved and sonata arctica.

How this is not in top 5 at least? It got one of the best bands of all time! - nooreldeen
