Reprise (pronounced rih-PREEZ) is a record label owned by the Warner Music Group and currently its largest sub-label. The label was founded by Music/FrankSinatra in 1960 and after struggling through its early years, was bought by Creator/WarnerBrosRecords three years later (they called it a "rescue takeover").

After the takeover, Reprise's new owner, Mo Ostin, would lead the label away from the swing roster that Sinatra had built and into the pop direction for which it became famous (starting with securing rights to Music/TheKinks). The roster throughout the 1970s included Music/JimiHendrix, Music/CaptainBeefheart, Music/TomLehrer, Music/NeilYoung (who's stayed with the label to this day, except during a brief, [[http://ultimateclassicrock.com/neil-young-geffen-records-infamous-rock-lawsuits/ ill-fated switch to]] Creator/GeffenRecords), the 1970's recordings by Music/FrankZappa, Music/FleetwoodMac, Music/JethroTull and the late 1960s to mid 1970s recordings by Music/TheBeachBoys.

Finally, if you've ever had a Warner-licensed song taken down from Website/{{Youtube}}, it probably belonged to Reprise they're very serious about that. Despite this, unlike Warner, Reprise has a good relationship with videogames: they have a track pack on ''VideoGame/GuitarHero III'' and were completely supportive of ''Green Day: VideoGame/RockBand''.
