Scared Records is an independent American record label founded in Atlanta in 1999, notable for re-releasing some "lost" Atlanta artists, especially from the punk and post punk era.

Founded by Stan Satin from his experience playing in Atlanta bands Vietnam and The Method Actors, Scared Records, whose name was chosen by subverting the defunct religious record label of the 1940s – 1950s Sacred Records, soon became the home for many of the Atlanta area's almost forgotten punk era bands such as The Restraints and Vietnam.

The label morphed out of Satin's earlier imprint, Spherecords, which had seen a limited release of his ambient electronic solo album entitled SonoVoX, as well as several releases by singer–songwriter Greg Connors.

The first release on the Scared Label (STF 0315) was an album by 315, whose limited 200-copy pressing of the self-titled 315 was a memorial to the local oddball artist, known as 315, who had contracted cancer and died in 2004.

The next release (SCR 8001) was actually labeled "Scarred" (with two "r's"), to commemorate the first release of a "lost" studio recording by Atlanta's first punk rock band, The Restraints, although the logo still incorporated the infamous laughing skull of Scared.

Twenty-five years in the making, Past Away (SRV 1213), the debut album by art-punk band Vietnam, was next to be released, featuring new recordings of original songs the band had composed in 1980–81.
