Fueled by Ramen LLC is an American record label owned by Warner Music Group with distribution from one of the company's main labels, Atlantic Records. The label, founded in Gainesville, Florida, is now based in New York City.

History

John Janick initially conceived of the label while attending high school, but it was not until he enrolled at the University of Florida in Gainesville and teamed up with Less Than Jake drummer-lyricist Vinnie Fiorello that Fueled By Ramen became a reality. The name of the label was inspired by only being able to afford a diet of inexpensive ramen at the time, due to having invested most of their money into making records.

In 2004, Fall Out Boy's Pete Wentz introduced Fueled By Ramen to fellow Chicago pop rock outfit The Academy Is..., who released their debut album Almost Here, the following year. Soon thereafter, Janick joined forces with Wentz to create Decaydance Records and released a series of albums from a disparate-sounding group of acts ranging from the alternative hip hop of Gym Class Heroes to the indie-pop combo The Hush Sound. In September 2005, Decaydance and Fueled By Ramen released A Fever You Can't Sweat Out, the RIAA double platinum-certified debut album from Las Vegas' Panic! at the Disco.

In 2007, the label opened an office in midtown Manhattan and that same year Paramore's album Riot! debuted in the top 20 of the US Billboard 200, was certified gold and a year later gained platinum status. Panic! at the Disco's second studio album Pretty. Odd. achieved similar success, debuting at number 2 on the Billboard 200 chart, selling over 139,000 copies its first week, and gaining platinum success. Later in 2016, Panic! at the Disco's fifth studio album Death of a Bachelor debuted at number 1, selling 196,201 copies in its first week, making it the fastest-selling album in the label's history.
