Warner Bros. Records began as an offshoot of the [[Creator/WarnerBros film studio]]. Like many of its artists, it was given "the chance to fail" until it emerged not only as a successful label, but a major force in the music industry.

By the late [[TheFifties 1950s]], the film industry was in decline thanks to TV and other factors. Meanwhile, the music industry was on an upswing, and movie studios were taking advantage of it. Creator/{{MGM}} Records had been successful for years; Creator/{{Paramount}} had just bought Dot Records; Creator/UnitedArtistsRecords, Creator/TwentiethCenturyFox Records, and Creator/ColumbiaPictures' Colpix label were entering the fray; even Creator/{{Disney}} had a small pop label, Buena Vista. (Creator/{{Universal}} reversed the pattern--they were owned ''by'' a record company, US Decca.) The final impetus was provided by Tab Hunter, a Warners contract player who moved into music and had several hit singles--for Dot. After a failed attempt to buy the Imperial label, WB took the plunge; on 19 March 1958, Warner Bros. Records opened for business.
