Quote Unquote Records is a donation-based online record label , founded and run by Bomb the Music Industry! And The Arrogant Sons of Bitches frontman Jeff Rosenstock . The label is an example of Rosenstock’s DIY ideals. Many of the label’s artists have personal connections, and all of the music released by the label is available for free download from its website, along with an array of lyrics and photos. The First Ever Donation Based Record Label “. [1] [2] [3] [4] [5]

Rosenstock explains the modest success of Quote Unquote Records by stating, “The donations that come in are not huge, but since they do not spend much money they pile up.” Most donations are more than the $ 5 suggestion. [6] During October 2008, the Quote Unquote Records web site was shut down over alleged copyright infringement in publishing its own songs; [7] [8] however, the site was quickly restored. [9]
