Best Record Labels

The Contenders: Page 2

21 Capitol

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.

The label had the Beatles, the Steve Miller Band, Beach Boys, Pink Floyd. Enough said.

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

28 Mercury

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

29 Geffen

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.

The only way to go

32 ANTI-

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

36 Spinnin' Records

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!

THE edm label

37 Apple

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

1. Motown
2. Apple
Come on! It's the Beatles!

38 Universal Music Group
39 GOOD Music

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, common

40 Bad 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

Biggie, puffy, lil cease, lil Kim. They all came from where the best came from and that's NYC
