Adeline Records was a record label that was formed in Oakland, California in late 1997 and closed in August 2017. It was created by Billie Joe Armstrong, lead singer of Green Day, Screw 32's Doug Sangalang, Green Day guitarist Jason White, and professional skateboarder Jim Thiebaud.[1][2] Green Day's management company, Pat Magnarella Management, took over ownership of the label and ran it from his office in San Diego for many years. In July 2017 Pat Magnarella split from Green Day having managed them for over 21 years and shortly thereafter Adeline Records abruptly closed down. Adeline Records was named after a street (Adeline Street) that runs from The Port of Oakland through West Oakland and Emeryville, terminating at Ward St and Shattuck Ave in Berkeley.[3]

Merchandise[edit]

Adeline Records also sold clothing for men and women as well as other clothing, providing advertising for the label. The range was called "Adeline Street" and included clothes (skirts, tops, underwear, dresses, hats, hoodies, jackets), accessories and jewellery for men, women, and children. The Adeline street logo is a skull and crossbones with a heart in the center of the crossed bones in pink for women and khaki for men. The clothing line ceased trading in 2008.[6] The company posted the following statement at the time "Adeline Street has decided not to move forward with future designs while Billie Joe and the guys are working hard on their follow up to 'American Idiot'".[7]
