Mutha Records was a Jersey Shore based punk rock record label established in 1982, which released material by New Jersey hardcore bands such as The Worst, Chronic Sick, and Fatal Rage. The label's activities were primarily based in Monmouth County beach communities such as Long Branch and Asbury Park.

Mutha did not exclusively release bands from New Jersey. Also issued by the label are recordings by Youth in Asia from Canada and Rattus from Finland.[1] However, the Youth In Asia album noted below, Pulling Out The Plug (Mutha 024), is from the NJ band Youth In Asia.

At the time of their release, Mutha LPs were not widely respected. However, today they are very popular in the indie records world and among some of the most sought after punk albums in the underground music world. Some albums have been known to sell for thousands of dollars.[2]
