Thanks to this roster and [=McGee=]'s media talent, Creation Records became one of the most critically acclaimed labels in the UK. Unfortunately, all the raves their releases earned only translated into at best mediocre commercial success. Already burdened with debts and [=McGee=]'s drug abuse, one band was famously blamed for driving the final nail into the label's coffin: Music/MyBloodyValentine and their costly two-year recording of ''Loveless''. While they've always denied spending £250,000 on their TroubledProduction, the label was in such dire straits by now that [=McGee=] was forced to sell half the company to Sony. While Sony's tenure led to the signing of Music/{{Oasis}} and subsequent success, [=McGee=] has always claimed that the sale ended "the ''real'' Creation" by bringing in major-label accountants and marketing managers.

Creation established itself nearly from the start as an important label for AlternativeRock, with signings such as Music/TheJesusAndMaryChain (who left for Creator/WarnerBrosRecords in 1985), Music/PrimalScream, Felt, and The Weather Prophets. After a disastrous attempt by [=McGee=] to run a Warner Bros. subsidiary named Elevation, the label regrouped in the late eighties, proceeding to swallow numerous {{Shoegazing}} bands such as Music/MyBloodyValentine, Music/{{Ride}}, Music/{{Slowdive}} and Swervedriver, while keeping Music/PrimalScream aboard and singing Teenage Fanclub and The Boo Radleys.

The label's dissolution was announced in late 1999, and its last release was Primal Scream's ''XTRMNTR''. [=McGee=] moved on to his next label Poptones (which popularised TheHives but also folded in 2007), while Foster continued to focus on Rev-Ola Records. A documentary about the label, ''Upside Down'', premiered in October 2010.
