Favorite Record Labels Over the Years

A chronological list of record labels I have favored over the years
1Various Artists

Sub Pop. Back in the early 1990's, I didn't know that this record label had been so instrumental in growing talent. Looking back on it now, several of the Sub Pop bands became some of my favorites, especially Soundgarden. Other greats included Green River, Nirvana, Mudhoney, Tad, and Screaming Trees.

Zoo Entertainment. What can I say, but it brought me Tool. Also loved Replicants, and to a lesser extent, Green Jelly and Lusk.

Nothing Records: Similar to the above, loved this label as it brought me Nine Inch Nails, the only Marilyn Manson albums worth owning, the Lost Highway soundtrack, and Prick. 2wo was a huge misstep though.
Plastic Planet

TVT Records. Great albums including NIN - Pretty Hate Machine, early Sevendust, GZR and Gravity Kills
Tin Cans with Strings to You

Immortal Records. To me, this label really kicked off the nu-metal explosion with the early releases by Korn, Incubus, and Far. Also included great releases by The Urge, 30 Seconds to Mars, and Deadsy.

Tooth & Nail Records. This label brought the best of early Christian metal including Stavesacre, Project 86, AP2, Blindside, and Chatterbox. Also had great later releases from Anberlin and The Letter Black.
7Me First and the Gimme Gimmes
Have a Ball

Fat Wreck Chords. Epitaph was great, but Fat Wreck Chords was fun! The best of pop punk back in the 90's. Loved Face to Face, MFATGG, Less than Jake, and No Use for a Name.
8Roadrunner United
The All-Star Sessions

Roadrunner Records. This is likely my favorite label on here. There are just so many releases on this label that, to me, are landmark. Including Sepultura, Soulfly, Fear Factory, Slipknot, Type O Negative, Stone sour, Trivium, Coal Chamber, Machine Head, Life of Agony, Gruntruck, Killswitch Engage, Coal Chamber, Devildriver, and Ill Nino. Also seems like everyone else has released on Roadrunner including Korn, Megadeth, Coheed and Cambria, BLS, Karma to Burn, Dream Theater, Down, Nightwish, Corrosion of Conformity, and In This Moment
9Dust For Life
Dust For Life

Wind-Up Records. I hesitate to include this label, but there are some greats on here including Atomship, Alterbridge, Boy Hits Car, Dust for Life, Drowning Pool, and of course early Evanescence. Now Creed on the other hand...
Mit Gas

Ipecac Recordings. Great releases from Tomahawk, Peeping Tom, Faith No More (Sol Invictus only, I believe), and...Mondo Generator!
11After Forever
After Forever

Nuclear Blast. Has some great releases from In Flames, Within Temptation, Ministry, Nightwish, Eyes Set to Kill (ESTK), and Epica. Also includes later releases from Fear Factory and Sepultura, as well as the incredible Killer Be Killed album.

Century Media Records. Great releases from stuck Mojo, Lacuna Coil, In This Moment, and early Tesseract. Also including releases from In Flames, ESTK, Nightwish, Nebula, and Fu Manchu.
Blood Drive

Relapse Records. What more needs to be said than this label brought us Mastodon. But also Baroness, Red Fang, ASG, and many others.
14The Pineapple Thief
Someone Here Is Missing

Kscope. Great releases from Porcupine Tree, Katatonia, The Pineapple Thief, and later Tesseract.
Breathe In The Water

Razor & Tie. Digging this label, which released awesome albums by Kyng, Red Sun Rising, The Pretty Reckless, and The Sword (starting with Apocryphon).
16Brant Bjork
Europe '16

Napalm Records. Seems to a be a current hotspot for some of my Stoner favorites from Vista Chino, John Garcia, Brant Bjork, Monster Magnet, and Karma to Burn. Also great releases from Kamelot, Skindred, and Tremonti.
1 + Dog Days

Man's Ruin Records. Now defunct, this lable provided us with great releases by later Kyuss, early Queens of the Stone Age, Fu Manchu, Dozer, Nebula, Goatsnake, Unida, Brant Bjork, and Los Natas.
18Orquesta del Desierto
Orquesta del Desierto

Meteor City Records. Great releases from Hermano, Dozer, Elder, The Atomic Bitchwax, Lowrider, Truckfighters, Unida, and several others.
19Brant Bjork
Mankind Woman

Heavy Pscych Sounds. Where several great stoner rock bands are moving to including Brant Bjork, Nebula, Karma to Burn, House of Broken Promises (HOBP), and Nick Oliveri.
Beyond Colossal

Small Stone Recordings. Everything I have heard so far from this Label is gold. Including releases from Asteroid, Dozer, Greenleaf, Lo-Pan, early HOBP, Sasquatch, Dwellers, JIRM, and others.
