Good time to post one of the Flag videos - Keith, Dez, Chuck Dukowski, Bill Stevenson and the guitar player from All
Texas hardcore!!! Loved this tape back in 1987!!! First heard Misfits and DRI about the same time. Enjoyed Black Flag here and there.
thanks for all the B.F. song suggestions.... I will definitely bring these up with the other guys to see which ones we want to pick... the only one I think would not be do-able is Slip It In. I don't think we will have anyone available to do the woman part.
I Bad Religion better, just my opinion.
Bad Religion are great. I like them a lot, but ... my thing with them is - they're extremely repetitive and predictable. all you really need is like 2 or 3 of their albums. they are like the Ac/Dc of punk.
love Dealing With It... such an awesome record.
also, in case you haven't heard - Josh Pape, the bassist on their Crossover, and 4 Of A Kind albums just died the other day.
Black Flag was a great band and hugely influential. Are they the best punk band ever? Who knows. Punk rock encompassed such a wide variety of music.
I agree... I can't pinpoint just ONE punk or hardcore band that is THE best... it can't be done. if I had to list my favorites, they would include...
there are other bands I love like MC5, The Stooges, The New York Dolls, but those are what I would consider pre-punk... also, there is a very fine line between punk and hardcore, and crossover (punk-metal). I'm only including ones here that I consider to be pure punk rock.
I was a pretty big Black Flag fan in high school. I can't really listen to that anymore. I am already yelling at clouds. One can only handle so much aggression.
Best thing Henry Rollings ever did was not come back to BF.
I may be old man yelling at clouds as well. But the HR version of Black Flag was the weakest. I’d take the early stuff with Keith Morris or Ron Reyes over the Rollins era any day. And I like a lot of the Rollins solo work.
Ron Reyes-era footage from Decline just RIPS; so ferocious!
The Dez-fronted version of the band from the Target Video comps kills it as well.
I like X better.
I don't think there's a "best punk band," and the concept flies in the face of the idea of "punk" anyway, doesn't it?
I like pre-HR Black Flag better than HR Black Flag, too.
