Names like 50 Cent & Eminem, I don't need to say more
Aftermath is one label I would certainly advocate my 14 year young "clean" lyric daughter to one day sign with. We need more young female artists that loves and appreciates the old school hip hop.
Tara's Hicks 1 love
I am a MC I'm 18 and I think could bring something new to the game hit me up we can have a chat (to Shady and Dre)
They are tight. Not only do they have new game artists like G-Unit, and Slim the Mobster, Shady till the dying day. It's run by ONE OF THE GREATEST PRODUCERS OF ALL TIME! DR. DRE. Keep it real.V 39 Comments
This record is so amazing and they have nothing but the greats in it.
Young Money has Nicki Minaj, Drake, Lil Wayne, and etc. they are the label. They have the queen of rap which should put them higher on this list.
Queen of Rap
I would love to sign with them... I can rap and sing and I love MONEY... So YOUNG MONEY must be the bestV 33 Comments
Best selling album (Thriller) Of All Time
Rihanna, Chris rene, Kanye west, Jay-z etc.
They had some great artists: Michael Jackson, Pearl Jam, Cheap Trick, REO Speedwagon, etc.
Natasha Bedingfield sure looked cute as a Epic Records artist. If you haven't listened to her songs, it could be a good idea. Also from the Epic Records catalog is the soundtrack to Aquamarine (the 2006 children's film). - playstationfan66V 25 Comments
This a best record label
I like em
Wayne's lyrics top...
Cash money is one of the most productive record label at present, and yet comprises of artists that are the most selling artists in the hip hop industry. And is yet one of the record label with numerous members. Brian Williams aka Birdman is doing a really good job with this record labelV 28 Comments
It's a good record
Atlantic is known as the house that Ahmet built they have made a name for them self as the best in the industry!
It has Artists like My Chemical Romance, The Clovers, Aretha Franklin, Bruno Mars, and several others (one of which I am addicted to, but won't name because she is MINE.)

Slim shady himself
Probably the most powerful record label out there these artists remind us what PAC and biggie died for and lived for REAL RAP unlike young money with lil wayne and drake and nicki minaj
Yo ain't nobody compare with Eminem in the Rap game. He is Legend and will remain as the king of rap forever! And I know he is doing good in his record label too. He is finding real talents and brought them out to the main stream. Every artist in shady records label know what they actually Rap about, they ain't spit like other artists do in other labels. Salute LEGEND!
Eminem is choosing only the best to join his label, that's why they consists only of the best lyricsts and that's why it makes them unique and the best!
Shady Records is the bestV 18 Comments
No label has had the impact on the music industry that Motown has had. Legends came from Motown
I LOVE MOTOWN
Mj started out here as well as marvin gaye, stevie wonder, diana ross, smokey robinson and a whole lot more.
MOTOWN IS THE ONLY LABEL IN THE WORLD THAT ANYONE CAN NAME ARTIST AN SONG 50 YEARS FROM NOW MOTOWN IS THE ONLY LABEL IN THE WORLD THAT ANYONE CAN NAME ITS FOUNDER 50 YEAR FROM NOW ANYONE CAN HEAR A MOTOWN SONG AN RECOGNIZE THE LABEL THE MOTOWN SOUNDV 22 Comments

This label consists real raw lyrical and flow ability. The artists on the label, hands down, put every other rapper out there to shame.
I like how you guys produce the songs that trippie redd makes
Lyrically insane people in hereV 6 Comments
Published the highest selling single in history - Bing Crosby’s ‘White Christmas’
Famously turned down the Beatles but signed the The Rolling Stones soon after. Had some other great 60s artists such as Tom Jones, The Who, Marrianne Faithful & The Zombies. They created a sub-label for more progressive music in the late 60s called Deram which published many the Moody Blues albums and both Genesis & Bowie’s debuts.
They also had Camel, Bryan Adams, Nat King Cole, Them, Buddy Holly, Ten Years After, Thin Lizzy, Cat Stevens, John Mayall & Morrissey - FredTheGooner
It's one of the most growing record labels out there right now, many young rappers and legendary rappers like, young dro and B.O. B and killer mike and dj drama and of course the king himself T. I known as (TIP)
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

This label signed the next big star that all the others will be regretting very soon! Zhavia is going to be the next big pop idol! No doubt
Columbia are responsible for signing the two greatest songwriters of all time: Leonard Cohen and Bob Dylan. No other label can compete with that.
Great record Zhavia got in
Columbia has a great sound stage that I like. Number eleven that's absurd. Get real, Hip Hop ain't music. Get rid of that sorry label.V 31 Comments
Do a great job promoting their large, as well as smaller artists.
They signed LADY GAGA. Legendary
A lot of good artists came out of this label such as Eminem, Mindless Behavior and 50 CenT
These guys really take time with new artist to fine area. Also I feel very comfortable sending them fresh new facesV 19 Comments
Universal has one of the biggest Artists in the game right now, they include Ariana, Drake, Nicki, Lil Wayne, The Weeknd, Post Malone, Demi Lovato & they signed with Taylor Swift. Their Artists are always on the top of the charts and doing so well. Plus, they bring Artists to work together & collaborate, Ariana & The Weeknd on "Love Me Harder", Ariana & Nicki on " Side to Side", "Bang Bang" & more, Nicki & Drake, & more!
This company now has the richest female personality Taylor Swift
This is the biggest label, its gains are always superior.

The Beatles, The Beach Boys, Pink Floyd, The Yardbirds, David Bowie, Diana Ross, Tina Turner, Iron Maiden, Beastie Boys, Queen, Radiohead, Snoop Dogg, Coldplay, Megadeth and the list just goes on and on
This record label has been around longer than many of the others in the top 10 and has a wider variety of artists than any other label on here.
They are affiliated with 5SOS and Hi or Hey Records which is some of the most amazing things I've seen.
The Beatles are better than all these new artists you name. So is Pink Floyd. Only Bob Dylan and the Doors are close. Katy Perry, Hip hop, you've got to be kidding me.V 21 Comments
The White Stripes
Tyler The Creator
All of them are/were on this wonderful label. - djpenquin999
Chris Brown and its not at top 3?! You guys gotta be kidding me. RCA is dominating Pop and RnB music out there. It has the best artists, definitely a top 3.
Amazing label. The likes of Miley, elvis, bing, Justin timberlake, chris brown.
One day I would like to be signed here.
Quite frankly this should be in the top 10
Home of Disney legends Christina Aguilera, Britney Spears, Justin Timberlake, Miley Cyrus and etc. Definitely top ten worthyV 14 Comments
They steal less from the artists
The Doors. enough said
En Vogue was one of those Elektra artists whom they fall under the Eastwest Records America sublabel. - playstationfan66
Beoncè signed with them!
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. - waterboy51V 7 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!
Great releases on this label!
Awesome label. good luck on getting to the top ten!
La creme de la cremeV 51 Comments
It has the best producer in the world (Pablo) and one of the best lyricists (Pusha)
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.
Get out yo dreamz
You guys are ill spwcially kanyeV 2 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 NYC

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
Best label for electronic music
Uber-commercialised, engineered and lifeless sludge made for low budget soft porn music video's. A real disgrace to music.
I love house music, keep up the good work!
It all starts with good music.V 8 Comments
Just got such brilliant and dedicated talent. Crown the Empire is one of the most dedicated bands out there.
Hands like Houses, Crown the Empire, Of Mice & Men, Memphis May Fire, Chelsea Grin. The list goes on and on you guys.
Rise puts out the best bands, Memphis May Fire, Knuckle Puck, and Sleeping with Sirens make real music.
Thank you for votingV 4 Comments
Jay Z la familia
Responsible for kanye west and many artists involved with other labels on the list
Home to the best pure rapper alive shawn carter
Three of the greatest rappers in history, should be a top ten label for sure
In my eyes it was the best black owned record label of all time.
Nobody messed with this record label. Literally the most dangerous and badass record label of all time. They had best rapper of all time (2Pac) and the best producer of all time (Dr. Dre). Also had not only another top 10 rapper of all time but one of the most popular rappers of this day (Snoop Dogg). And let’s not forget they had the best featured artist of all time (Nate Dogg).

Top 10 record label in the industry
50, Banks, Buck, Game, Yayo, Mobb Deep.. Epic
50 Cent, Lloyd Banks, Tony Yayo, Young Buck, Game, Mobb Deep, Ma$e, M.O.P., Olivia... - erikvandermeer
Epitaph has got to be the best record label out there, there may be record labels with bands and artists that are widely more popular than some of the bands Epitaph have, but Epitaph are mainly based around rock and punk bands and if you look at the Epitaph artist list, it's just full of rock and punk based bands.
So many other record labels say they are based around a certain genre of music, yet they have so many bands that are completely opposite to what they say they look for.
Epitaph is also one of the best record labels purely because they don't just sign bands that are around the genre they look for, but some of the best and biggest bands around the genre. These bands can consist of Green Day, BMTH (Bring Me The Horizon), Bad Religion (OBVIOUSLY), Sleeping With Sirens, Escape The Fate, Architects AND GOD DAMN FALLING IN REVERSE. You can't get any better. Along with these bands, Epitaph also signs some artists that go solo that are also in Epitaph Signed bands, E.G. ...more
REFUSED! They are an amazing band that was signed by Epitaph, and I just love them! Refused is a great hard core band, so if you like that sort of thing, CHECK THEM OUT NOW! New Noise is my all time favorite Refused song, so I highly recommend that one! The Shape of Punk to Come was my favorite album by them, and it all came true because of Epitaph!
Great bands with great diversity from weezer to the metal band bring me the horizon. And they cover everything in between.
Legendary punk bands like Bad Religion. pennywise and many moreV 1 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

Ovo crew night thought I told youV 3 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
Come on! It's the Beatles!
They are bright and kind and do all they can to help you! I want to be signed here one day!
I love Big Machine Records. Scott Borchetta is the best businessman of record labels in the world. I heard it is such a positive environment and there are really nice people there too. I really want to be signed there someday.
