Broken Records was a Christian rock record label founded in 1985. The label closed in the early 1990s.

Broken Records became an important label in the development of both the West Coast Christian alternative music and Christian hip-hop scenes.[1] It focused primarily on modern rock, punk and new wave music, paving the way for labels like Frontline Records. Artists signed to Broken Records included Level Heads, The Altar Boys, The Choir, Crumbächer, The 77s, 4-4-1, Riki Michele, Adam Again and Undercover. After having difficulties with its distributor, the label was for a time run successfully as Brainstorm Artists International.[2]

Several Broken Records bands reunited in Irvine, California on August 19, 2005 for a reunion concert. The event, which was filmed for a possible DVD release by Take 2 Productions, included performances by the Altar Boys, 4-4-1, The Choir, Crumbächer and Undercover.
