Despite a minor hit with Modern English's "I Melt With You" in 1983 and a huge success with M/A/R/R/S' [[{{Sampling}} sampletastic]] "Pump Up the Volume" in 1987, 4AD were always more of a CultClassic UK-focused label, which led them to signing a distribution deal with Creator/WarnerBrosRecords in 1992. This is considered a sign of the end of "classic 4AD", as many of its flagship bands were leaving or disbanding, and Watts-Russell himself left the label in 1999, but it remained active. Its importance was recognised by the Beggars Group in 2008 through a reorganisation that merged many of its subsidiary labels into 4AD (including Beggars' Banquet itself).

However, this wasn't all 4AD had to offer, as was highlighted by its famous 1987 sampler compilation ''Lonely Is An Eyesore''. The label soon expanded into American AlternativeRock, signing Music/ThePixies, Music/TheBreeders and Music/Throwing Muses, among others, and establishing a UsefulNotes/LosAngeles office in TheNineties, from where a lot of the {{Slowcore}} bands that drove the label that decade operated.
