  • Kill Rock Stars is an independent record label founded in 1991 by Slim Moon and based in Olympia, WA. Originally intended to release spoken word seven inches under the "wordcore" moniker, it quickly expanded to become a punk rock rock and roll label thru the release of a compilation, some rock seven inches, and albums and EPs. The first bands "on" Kill Rock Stars included Unwound, Witchypoo, Bikini Kill, and Huggy Bear. Unlike all major labels and many indie labels, profit is not our primary motivation. Kill Rock Stars is dedicated to releasing high quality meaningful recordings in a manner that is fair and respectful to the artists. The system that makes rock stars wants us to believe that we have no choices except the handful they give us but they don't even bother to give us good choices, just lame ones. KRS just wants to give you some good stuff to listen to that actually means something to counteract the empty and boring stuff you see on TRL or whatever.
