Hellcat Records is a vanity record label based in Los Angeles, California. The label, an off-shoot of Epitaph Records, was started as a partnership between the owner of Epitaph, Brett Gurewitz from Bad Religion and Tim Armstrong of Rancid, the latter of which is generally responsible for signing the bands.

The label specializes in ska, punk, oi!, psychobilly and hardcore bands. Give ‘Em the Boot, a Hellcat label sampler which also includes tracks from other up-and-coming independent bands, has been issued every other year since 1997, with the exception of the third release which was released 3 years after the second.

Movies ——————-
In 2005, a Give ‘Em the Boot DVD was released, featuring tour footage of numerous Hellcat bands.

On January 15, 2006, the label released Live Freaky! Die Freaky!, a full-length movie produced by Tim Armstrong, and filmed using marionettes. The plot involves Charlie Manson returning to a post-apocalyptic Earth, and features the voice talents of the members of Rancid, Green Day, and The Transplants, among numerous others.
