Hopeless Records is an American independent record label located in Van Nuys, Los Angeles, California, United States.[1][2]


Hopeless Records was founded in 1993 by Louis Posen. The label's artists are generally considered to fall under the genres of punk rock, pop punk, post-hardcore, and alternative rock, but some also include elements of heavy metal. Some of their most well-known artists include Sum 41, Neck Deep, Avenged Sevenfold, Thrice, Yellowcard, Anarbor, All Time Low, Taking Back Sunday, There For Tomorrow, Silverstein, We Are The In Crowd, Bayside, The Used, The Wonder Years, The Human Abstract and Enter Shikari.[3]


The label's "charitable arm," Sub City Records, produces the annual Take Action Tour.[4] Each year Hopeless/Sub City releases a benefit compilation Take Action! which is a multidisc compilation of punk and other independent bands. The CD release usually coincides with the annual Take Action Tour.
