ANTI- is a USA record label founded in 1999 as a sister label of Epitaph.

While Epitaph's focus has shifted over the last decade[clarification needed] from mostly punk rock, nowadays ANTI- has a more diverse roster, including: country (Merle Haggard), hip hop (Sage Francis, The Coup), reggae (Michael Franti), soul (Bettye LaVette), indie folk (The Swell Season, Saintseneca), rap rock (One Day as a Lion), indie rock (Islands) and Tom Waits.

Headed by Andy Kaulkin, ANTI- first gained attention by releasing Tom Waits' Grammy award winning Mule Variations in 1999. Along with Waits, several veteran recording artists such as rhythm and blues singers Solomon Burke, Bettye LaVette and Marianne Faithfull have signed onto ANTI- after leaving other major labels.[1]
