Uzi Suicide was a vanity label that was created in 1986 by Guns N' Roses to release their first record, Live ?!*@ Like a Suicide. While seemingly an independent label, it was created by Geffen Records. Guns N' Roses' debut album, Appetite for Destruction, was officially released through Geffen. The label also re-released albums by the Finnish glam band Hanoi Rocks.
Eventually, control of the company's assets was transferred to the band members, primarily the new publishing company of Axl Rose, Black Frog.
