1-2-3-4 Go! Records is an American independent record label and retail store that specializes in punk rock and indie rock. Physical and Digital Music is distributed by Revolver. The label was founded in August 2001 in Seattle with the release of the Spitting Teeth 7" "Legacy of Cruciality". In December 2003, the label moved to Oakland, California. In March 2008, the label opened a retail record store in the Temescal neighborhood of North Oakland.[1] The store initially focused on punk rock, indie rock, garage rock, and related genres but has since expanded to cover a wide variety of new and used records.[2] The store hosts live music performances and occasional art shows. Frank Portman of The Mr. T Experience and Green Day have performed there.[3]

In 2015, they opened a second retail store in the Mission District of San Francisco. Since opening the Oakland retail store, 1-2-3-4 Go! Records has won four Best of the East Bay awards from the East Bay Express. In 2009, it won the Best Punk Record Store award[4] and in 2008 it won the Best New Business award[5] alongside its neighbor Manifesto Bicycles.
