The Contenders: Page 5

81 Parlophone

Parlophone has had artist such as coldplay,pink floid,Radiohead,David bowie,daft punk and the Beatles

This label is pretty much in the heart of Britain's rich music history in modern times, yet Parlophone is ranked 74... Something's not right here.

I'm pretty sure this label is of higher importance than so-called record labels such as Fueled By Ramen and Cash Money.

82 Rough Trade Records

The Smiths, the Strokes, the Libertines, Howler... How could you go wrong? This is one of the few record labels that have REAL artists signed to them. Not Katy Perry and Nicki Minaj, they can all a duck. Unfortuantly, only the British rule at music. Over the years, America have had very few bands (such as the Doors) that compare to British bands. They only really had an identity when grunge came along. Furthermore: AMERICA LACKS CULTURE!

For a record label that has shaped culture, you need only look at 3 labels: Columbia, Motown and Rough Trade. Since RT are the only ones still pumping out new bands, I'd say them. Welcome to the future.

83 Metal Blade Records

This should be way up there!

It houses the best metal bands and more

They have st vincent! Good indie label, and I'm bored of people saying so and so are amazing because they have Green Day, who I'd be embarrassed to take my mum to see

96 Virgin Records

Yes Boy George and Culture Club. Virgin struck gold signing this awesome genius band in the early eighties.

I've got two words for U. Smashing. Pumpkins. Enough said.

Janet Jackson and the Spice Girls had the most-success with this label.
