BYO Records

BYO Records

BYO Records is a Los Angeles, California based independent punk rock record label created by Shawn and Mark Stern, two of the three brothers of the seminal California punk rock band Youth Brigade (the third being Adam Stern who plays bass but does not run BYO). BYO stands for Better Youth Organization and aims to promote punk and other alternative youth cultures in a positive light. BYO records serves as an extension and realization of the ethos promoted by Youth Brigade such as the belief that "youth is an attitude, not an age," and that "every generation has a responsibility to change what they feel is wrong in the world." It has released records by a number of influential, if not genre-defining bands, including 7 Seconds and SNFU in the 1980s and Leatherface, Kosher, The Unseen, Throw Rag, Jon Cougar Concentration Camp and The Briefs more recently. It also started the BYO Split Series of full length records shared by bands from other labels, such as NOFX/Rancid, Anti-Flag/The Bouncing Souls, Youth Brigade/Swinging Utters and Alkaline Trio/One Man Army. The label celebrated its 25th anniversary in 2007.
