How could you go wrong with a label that had The Police, Styx, and Bryan Adams?
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?
Honestly, I only know three bands that I like signed in this label: Guns N' Roses, Aerosmith and Nirvana... - rock2metal
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. - waterboy51V2 Comments
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!
Awesome label. good luck on getting to the top ten!
The Best EDM label in the world, great releases. Full support guys!
Amazing artists, amazing music, amazing label. Thanks for giving the masses some of the best music to listen to in the world.V45 Comments
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
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.V1 Comment
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.
They have the Hottest artist and best production and promotion
Excellent Work! Full supportV6 Comments
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.
The Beatles made this record label. There was even a small part of Apple records that lasted for 3 months called Zapple Records, which had only 2 albums, The 2nd John and Yoko avant Garde album, and George Harrison's Electronic Sound
Apple is awesome
Best label for electronic music
I love house music, keep up the good work!V3 Comments
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
Biggie, puffy, lil cease, lil Kim. They all came from where the best came from and that's NYCV2 Comments
This is one of the most musically diverse record. How many tracks do you hear today with create beats and tracks. They never follow the standard order of a song and know how to stimulate their listeners experience by introducing new and diverse songs.
Kanye west, Kid cudi, Pusha T, Teyana Taylor, John Legend, Big Sean, Cyhi the prynce,2 chainz, dbanj, commonV2 Comments
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.
Dr dre, Tupac, eminent, snoop dogg, Nate dogg, the doc, mc hammer and hittman. Personal favourite labelV2 Comments
Maybe, the best in their genre
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.
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?
How this is not in top 5 at least? It got one of the best bands of all time! - nooreldeen
Jay Z la familia
