Unicorn Album Discography
By David Edwards, Mike Callahan, Patrice Eyries, Randy Watts & Tim Neely
Last update: May 4, 2014

Unicorn Records was a subsidiary of MCA Records. It started in 1980, but by 1983 they were bankrupt. The Black Flag album was pulled after MCA management determined it to be "Anti-Parent." The group reissued it on SST Records.

Unicorn used the same basic design for their labels, but issued them in a variety of colors. (9500, 9501 and 9503 used the black label; 9502 used a blue label.
Unicorn 9505 used a beige label and 9510 used an aqua label. Not pictured are 9504, which used a custom label with a soccer ball on one side, and 9507, which had a green label.
