Favorite record label

My favorite record label is Atlantic, because they haven't had a single bad artist signed to them since their birth in 1948. They've had loads of big names including:

Ray Charles
Bobby Darin
Aretha Franklin
Buffalo Springfield
Yes
Genesis
The Spinners
The Trammps
Gary Numan
KIX
Ted Nugent
Twisted Sister
Laura Branigan
Ratt
Alphaville
John Parr
Loudness
Bob Geldof
David Foster
Peter Frampton
The System
Saga
Dirty Looks
Winger
Saigon Kick
Skid Row (Sebastian Bach pwnz all of you)
Mr. Big
Cool C
Sugar Ray
Lil' Kim
CIV
Extra Fancy
Kid Rock
Fat Joe
Judas Priest
The Darkness (the band that SAVED rock and roll!)

Just some of the artists I know off the top of my head that have been with them.

Oh! So you were beng sarcastic.

My favorite label is either Fearless Records (for the sole fact that At the Drive-In was signed to them) or Vagrant Records (Alkaline Trio, The Get Up Kids, Eels, etc.).

hmmm. I went with other seeing how the mainstream labels well kinda suck IMO. I like Interscope (mainstream but they have primus and a few other good bands),Wind Up is good to, Asain Man Records, Relapse Records and alot of other small labels.

the darkness. i found out why they are called the darkness.
it's because the closet they live in is very dark.
it's so obvious they sleep with each other, how do you think the lead singer hits those notes? they just slip a mic under the door after they get him drunk and put him in a room with the bassist.
viola, record deal, and money.

i don't like trent reznor either. his music is too repetitive. now lil' kim, that's talent!

My favorite is Matador, they have the New Pornographers, Interpol, and they used to have my favorite band, Belle and Sebastian.

Opaline Records and Parlophone. If you can recognize those(And the two bands attributed to them) and not scoff them off...

CONGRATS! YOU HAVE YOUR OWN TASTE!

And whichever has The Mars Volta and had ATD-I. Mostly because they arent the same repetitive crap as everyone else(using this phrase lightly). And because that L'Via L'whatever one was just so awesome.

DV4Life.



PS:It its heresy to put The Darkness touching Judas Priest. Send em back a decade or so. They aint nothing special.

ATDI: Fearless
TMV: Gold Standard Labs / Universal

And at least you didn't call the song something like Le Viva Le Vasquez like retards were doing back when the CD first came out. Anywayz, I forgot Epitaph records. Run by Brett Whatsislastname (more of a tidbit than anything to me though, seeing as how I hate Bad Religion... but I digress...), Epitaph has some really kickass bands including Motion City Soundtrack, The Matches, Scatter the Ashes, Pennywise, Dillinger Escape Plan, Death by Stereo, NOFX, and Millencolin* (as well as Bad Religion themselves). Seriously, what label can claim to have that many awesome bands?


*Abridged list of awesomeness.

....Don't have a particular record label that I like: I listen to what I like, occasionally on the radio, but mostly if it's someone that I know already and like Smile . In either case, I'm barely familiar with record labels, let alone pay attention to them.

...And as for your argument; this has the makings of something that can go for a page or more, so please take it to private from here. Thanks in advance.

Peace Cool
