Warner Records (formerly Warner Brothers Records) is the official YouTube channel for the music record label of Warner Records. This is the channel in which they upload the musical content (including interviews and other random videos), of all the bands and/or musicians that they have licensed underneath of them.
Warner Bros. Records was established in 1958 as the recorded music division of the American movie studio Warner Bros. Pictures. For most of its existence it was one of a group of labels owned and operated by larger parent corporations. The sequence of companies that controlled Warner Bros. and its allied labels evolved through a convoluted series of corporate mergers and acquisitions from the early 1960s to the early 2000s. Over this period, Warner Bros. Records grew from a struggling minor player in the industry to become one of the top recording labels in the world.
In 2003, these music assets were divested by their then owner Time Warner and purchased by a private equity group. This independent company traded as the Warner Music Group (WMG), before being bought by Access Industries in 2011. WMG is the third-largest of the three major international music conglomerates and the world's last publicly traded major music company.
