The label is best known for its activity during the 1980s, when it made its name specializing in PostPunk genres like DreamPop, [[NewWaveMusic New Wave]] and GothRock.

The label was started by two former Beggars Banquet employees, Ivo Watts-Russell and Peter Kent, initially named Axis Records. After it was discovered that an Axis label already existed, it was renamed to 4AD, based on a promotional flyer where "1980 FORWARD" was gradually abbreviated to "4AD". Kent sold his share of the company to Watts-Russell in 1981, leaving him sole owner and president.
