Amphetamine Reptile Records is a noise rock/grunge/heavy rock label out of Minneapolis, Minnesota. Active since 1986 and run by Tom Hazelmyer (Halo of Flies) the label gained significant notoriety with Minnesota noise rock icons Cows and releases by Helmet, Janitor Joe and label regulars The Melvins. Around that time the label used an "ARR" prefix for their catalog and had distribution through Glitterhouse. By the 2000s the model would change (As indicated by their SCALE catalog numbers) and their ethos would focus more on limited vinyl with screenprinted covers, selling them just as much for their art as the music.

The label is also known for their curated compilation series known as Dope-Guns-'N-Fucking In The Streets and their bi-yearly BASH, a mini-festival held at Hazelmyer's bar Grumpy's.
