Time Bomb Recordings

Time Bomb Recordings was a Laguna Beach, California-based independent record label, founded in 1995 by artist manager Jim Guerinot in a joint-venture agreement with Arista Records. In the following five years, the artist roster grew to encompass a variety of musical genres (punk, indie, rock-a-billy); generally falling under the label "alternative rock". When the Arista agreement expired in 2000, Time Bomb signed with BMG Distribution. The label has also existed mostly to administer its back catalog and is currently distributed by RED Distribution (whose parent, Sony Music Entertainment, absorbed BMG). Time Bomb continued to release new albums in physical form until 2007, with the release of Social Distortion's Greatest Hits compilation album. Social Distortion would later sign to Epitaph, and Time Bomb did not release any new music in over half a decade.
