Let's be honest, when we saw a Music Label with the name Burger Records, we thought it was one of the coolest things ever. However, after reading about what happened at the label over the last year, that adoration turned to disappointment.
About 7 months ago, we read that Burger Records was the next victim of "cancel culture" and their bands were accused of predatory behavior towards young woman. What was generally considered normal behavior by rock bands 50, 30, or even 10 years ago isn't going to fly in this age of social media. So, the label president took the bullet and agreed to part ways.
However, whoever took over the wheel at Burger Records couldn't turn that ship around, and they ceased operations in July of 2020.
Let us just say, this label wasn't just hip for their name. They also released most of their music on cassettes, which is awesome in itself. They also hosted a festival called the Burger A-Go-Go, which is beyond cool.
Honestly, I think the main reason they crashed was due to a lack of Sandwich Bands. Sad as it seems, it looks like Burger Records is gone forever.
