No Idea Records is an independent record label with its office in Gainesville, Florida, producing both vinyl records and compact discs.

No Idea started out not as a record label, but as a zine, published independently by Var Thelin and some friends of his from High School. By the third issue Var was doing the zine solo. By the time the sixth issue came out, he decided to start including 7 inch records with the zine. The first one featured a band called Doldrums, and the second was a split 7”, one side of which belonged to now Bay Area legends, Crimpshrine, one of the early bands of Aaron Cometbus. Since its beginnings, No Idea has remained a foundation of the Gainesville punk scene which is considered by many to have spawned its very own style of punk rock, commonly referred to as beard punk.
