Ipecac Recordings is an independent record label based in Orinda, California. It was founded in 1999 by Greg Werckman (ex-label manager of Alternative Tentacles, ex-Lead Singer for Duh, ex-employee for Mercury Records and Pick-A-Winner Management) and Mike Patton (ex-Faith No More, ex-Mr. Bungle, Fantômas, Tomahawk and Peeping Tom) in Alameda, California.

Originally the label was created for the sole purpose of releasing the first Fantômas album. Currently they also distribute other artists like The Melvins, Isis, and other of Patton's projects and collaborations.

The label is named after syrup of ipecac, an emetic, or vomit-inducing, medicine.

The label's tag line is "Ipecac Recordings--Making People Sick Since 1999."
