Nitro Records is an American independent record label, created and formerly operated by Dexter Holland (lead singer and founder of The Offspring) and fellow Offspring bassist Greg K. They started the label in 1994. Nitro is famous for being an incubator for punk rock artists who have subsequently become successful, most notably AFI. The label has also released albums from classic punk bands, including The Damned and T.S.O.L.
In July 2013, Bicycle Music acquired Nitro Records. Despite this, Nitro will be reactivated in 2014.
