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.

cool.

23 A&M

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

24 Mercury

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

25 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.

Underrated label..Sad

26 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

27 Fearless 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.

One of the best record labels, why is it no.28?

Three words Pierce. The. Veil

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!

Just classic dance music for the future

30 Milestone
31 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

34 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

Come on! It's the Beatles!

35 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.

Get out yo dreamz

You guys are ill spwcially kanye

36 SST Records
37 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

38 Nuclear Blast

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

39 Roc-A-Fella Records

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

40 Death Row Records

The absolute greatest no question. Dr Dre, Snoop dogg, Tupac Shakur

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

Where Gods were born

Made rap
