YEAR OF METAL title

black flag

Before he became known as a spoken word performer and writer (and sometime actor), Henry Rollins was the vocalist for the iconic California hardcore punk band Black Flag from 1981 on to their break-up in 1986. In between that time, they recorded one of the more influential hardcore punk albums ever (Damaged), as it’s listed on many punk “greatest albums” lists. Also, they have one of the most recognizable logos out there; though, nowadays one has to wonder if anyone sporting it on either a pin or a jacket patch is making a fashion statement more than an actual anti-establishment non-poser statement.

“Rise Above”

“My War”

“Slip It In”
