    Arguably one of the most important labels in pop punk.

    Remember that time Fall Out Boy and Gatsbys American Dream almost joined that label. Those were the days.

    DTR was a great label despite how awful the owners could be

    What a label and time period. We will probably never see anything like it again.

    I probably bought every CD they released from 2000-2002. Other than "The Resignation," I didn't care most of their releases after 2002.

  5. This compilation is largely responsible for my music tastes from 2005 onward.

    2002-04 was my golden age for this label. I was hooked on The Movielife, Finch, and the RX Bandits.

    the starting line - the best of me
    new found glory - hit or miss
    the movielife - hand grenade
    senses fail - bloody romance
    home grown - you're not alone

    SIDE B:
    allister - somewhere on fullerton
    the early november - i want to hear you sad
    fenix tx - all my fault
    finch - letters to you
    something corporate - konstantine

    What was the deal with Drive Thru & Geffen records, and why did it end up screwing the likes of TSL, Finch, NFG, etc?

    I remember TSL mentioned it in their Somebody's Gonnna Miss Us DVD.
     
  13. I always heard the strangest things about this label. A friend of mine met with the owners who I think were a husband and wife(?). They had them lie on their backs and gave them massages while they pitched why they should sign with them. lol

    This is true and a thing that really happened to bands at the time

    Putting the very bizarre antics behind of the owners, Drive Thru was such a top tier label in its prime. So many scene classics came out in the early 00’s from them that were very important to me growing up.

    Shame what happened to the label in the end.

    Owners were brother and sister, not married IIRC.
