Top Ten Artists You Probably Didn't Know Were Signed Onto Roadrunner RecordsNuMetalManiak Well folks, this is it. My 1000th list. Can I speak to all of you and say how happy I am after about 4 years of being on here to actually make one?
Well, yes, I've been doing lots of record label/artist lists recently, all original, believe it or not. Let's go back to Roadrunner Records, a famous company for it's sheer amount of rock/metal artists that are on the label. Did you know that some other artists are there too? I will be exploring which artists are on the label but not prominently on the label, which would refer to the ones that don't have more than half of their discography released under Roadrunner Records.
The Top Ten
Periphery is mostly on Sumerian and Century Media Records. Their very first album was also released on Roadrunner. - NuMetalManiak
Oddly enough, their most famous releases are on Roadrunner Records, which is their first three albums. But they have been on Victory Music more often, especially with their most recent albums. - NuMetalManiak
Cradle of Filth has rocked (no pun intended) back and forth between many record labels. Roadrunner was one of them. - NuMetalManiak
You all know I like Staind so much. I originally thought they were a Roadrunner exclusive band like most other nu metal artists, but it's rather surprising that only The Illusion of Progress and their self-titled albums are Roadrunner releases. Even moreso, Roadrunner isn't even their primary label. - NuMetalManiak
One of Staind's main record labels was Atlantic Records. Shinedown is primarily on this label, but they had released Amaryllis on Roadrunner as well. - NuMetalManiak
Some of Korn's recent releases on Roadrunner, and they are one of the bands currently signed onto that label. Before that though, they've been predominant in Immortal and Epic Records. - NuMetalManiak
Much like Korn, they have just recently signed on the label, with two albums on it. Before that they were much like Cradle of Filth, having signed onto several labels. - NuMetalManiak
Their most recent album was released under Roadrunner, but they have been dominant in Fearless Records and even Tragic Hero Records beforehand. - NuMetalManiak
Well, I'm not a fan of Megadeth in the slightest. But they've had three releases in Roadrunner in the late 2000s and early 2010s. Before that they were dominant under Capitol Records. - NuMetalManiak
Nah, I think besides Nickelback, Megadeth was what made RR popular. and as far as metal goes, they were the best artist on it.
Looking at Biohazard's discography, it's surprising that each of their studio albums were released on different labels. Roadrunner was the one for their second album in 1992. - NuMetalManiak
