For some reason I've been labeled that and it's fine, but there are a lot of other artists that sing real traditional stuff, so I don't know why they picked me. That's what I've always done.
— Alan Jackson label quote
Once you label me you negate me.
— Soren Kierkegaard
Labels are for filing. Labels are for clothing. Labels are not for people.
— Martina Navratilova
I am doing things that are true to me. The only thing I have a problem with is being labeled.
— label quotation by Johnny Depp
I try to look for the good in everybody, regardless of the way they're labeled.
I think ethnic and regional labels are insulting to writers and really put restrictions on them. People don't think your work is quite as universal.
Well, Eminem, you know, I know him longer.
Ive been signed to his label since 2001 and he's a good friend.
Some people are always critical of vague statements.
I tend rather to be critical of precise statements; they are the only ones which can correctly be labeled wrong.

Might as well enjoy it and they should too.
For new bands, I think a major label is the safest place to be.
Independent labels are the ones getting away with murder. A lot of them are hobbyists who rip-off young bands, taking advantage of people who would never get signed to a major.

Major labels didn't start showing up really until they smelled money, and that's all they're ever going to be attracted to is money-that's the business they're in- making money.

I don't care what people call me, labels have the negative value of making smaller boundaries for people.

I dont believe in labels. I want to do the best I can, all the time. I want to be progressive without getting both feet off the ground at the same time. I want to be prudent without having my mind closed to anything that is new or different. I have often said that I was proud that I was a free man first and an American second, and a public servant third and a Democrat fourth, in that order, and I guess as a Democrat, if I had to takeplace a label on myself, I would want to be a progressive who is prudent.

Expose your ideas to the dangers of controversy. Speak your mind and fear less the label of 'crackpot' than the stigma of conformity. And on issues that seem important to you, stand up and be counted at any cost.
For lack of a better term, they've labeled me a sex symbol.
It's flattering and it should happen to every bald, overweight guy.
