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

Broken Records became an important label in the development of both the West Coast Christian alternative rock and Christian hip hop scenes.[1] It focused primarily on modern rock, punk and new wave music. It paved the way for labels like Frontline Records.[citation needed]

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 (by Ojo Taylor and Gene Eugene).[2]
