Greg Street[edit]

Why does the name Greg Street redirect to Interscope Records? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 71.236.165.104 (talk) 07:39, 11 October 2008 (UTC)

That's a really good question, and one that I couldn't answer with about ten minutes of research. It doesn't anymoreTheNeutroniumAlchemist (talk) 10:14, 17 February 2009 (UTC)

Amy Grant and Marilyn Manson[edit]

Amy Grant and Marilyn Manson belong to the same label? *Makes cartoons gestures/noises of disbelief*--Wasabe3543 06:12, 11 Dec 2004 (UTC)

Amy Grant was an A&M Records Recording artist in the 90s. A&M closed up in 1998 when Universal Music Group merged it into Interscope, but A&M is still operational today only 'by name', and run by Interscope. Geffen and Dreamwords are the same way. Xm2631 21:04, 25 August 2005 (UTC)

Artists currently on Interscope Records[edit]

Do you reckon the list should have clickable letters and numbers so people can easily get to an artist/band? • Thorpe • 13:49, 10 August 2005 (UTC)

Maybe you should try adding one of the highest selling artists period, eminem?

2Pac[edit]

Since the title says Artists currently on Interscope Records, shouldn't 2Pac be removed. He's dead and, thus, can't currently be on any record label.

nah, cuz they've released about 2349697234 posthumous Pac albums. Dr. Trey 09:03, 18 March 2006 (UTC)

Catalogue[edit]

It should remain. I am not going to list the entire Columbia Records catalog. That page would be much longer and inappropriate. (Xm2631 05:54, 4 April 2006 (UTC))

Nine Inch Nails[edit]

Shouldn't something be added about Nine Inch Nail's "Big Man with A Gun" controversy that resulted in the selling off of Interscope?

Criticism section[edit]

I've tidied up the Ice Cube part a bit, but should it even be there in the first place? The reference is simply to an unofficial copy of the lyrics of "Child Support" and he (Ice Cube) doesn't even mention Tupac. Sure, it can be inferred that that's what he's referring to, but it's not clear. ElijahReno (talk) 02:18, 30 March 2009 (UTC)

the entire section is unsourced. any section titled "criticism" should have reliable sources. i have reverted a users removal of the citation needed tag on one of these assertions, and noticed that the entire section isnt sourced. -badmachine 17:18, 16 August 2011 (UTC)
The Criticism section could maybe contain something about Die Antwoord leaving Interscope in November 2011. Their latest album Ten$Ion has a skit Uncle Jimmy[1] that is aimed at Interscope founder Jimmy Iovine. Interscope didn't like the albums "nastier lyrics"[2] --82.171.13.139 (talk) 21:33, 6 February 2012 (UTC)

dr.dre[edit]

d.dre is down as hell!! —Preceding unsigned comment added by 68.103.95.169 (talk) 02:46, 23 April 2010 (UTC)

Founded in which year? 1989? 1990? 1991?[edit]

is it 1990 as in the text?

or 1991 as in the overview-box?

or is it 1989 as I found elsewhere: http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/pages/frontline/shows/cool/interviews/iovine.html http://investing.businessweek.com/research/stocks/private/snapshot.asp?privcapId=829601

by the way there is support for 1990 as well: http://www.fundinguniverse.com/company-histories/Interscope-Music-Group-company-History.html http://www.addressinterscoperecords.com/ http://www.mahalo.com/interscope-records/#

Except for Wikipedia I found no sources that supported 1991. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 91.65.176.218 (talk) 16:42, 1 March 2012 (UTC)

What happened to Artists on A&M Records?[edit]

If A&M Records is Defunct, then what happened to Fergie? Did they all move to Interscope or A&M/Octone Records? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Smarty9108 (talkcontribs) 03:07, 10 December 2012 (UTC)

Shouldn't lloyd polite be listed under interscope?  — Preceding unsigned comment added by Acejackson2690 (talkcontribs) 17:43, 11 November 2013 (UTC)
