** ''Damaged'' was originally going to be distributed by Unicorn, a subsidiary of MCA records - Though the records were already pressed and packaged with the MCA logo, MCA president Al Bergamo [[MoralGuardians objected to its "anti-parent" content]] and MCA refused to distribute it. SST then distributed the album themselves, and covered up the MCA logo with a sticker reading "As a parent, I found it an anti-parent record", throwing his words back at him.

** On ''My War'', Greg Ginn used his own name for guitar, songwriting and production, but credited his bass playing to Dale Nixon - this was meant to hide the fact that they went into the studio without a full-time bassist. Unrelated punk bands subsequently started putting Dale Nixon in their liner notes as a ShoutOut, usually because they couldn't list the real name of a performer for contractual reasons.

Black Flag forged a unique sound early on that mixed the raw simplicity of the Ramones with atonal guitar solos and frequent tempo shifts. The band was also known for the intense and evocative lyrics found in their songs, most of which were penned by Ginn. Like other punk bands of this era, Black Flag gave voice to an anti-authoritarian, non-conformist message, featuring songs punctuated with descriptions of isolation, neurosis, poverty, and paranoia, themes that would be explored further when Music/HenryRollins joined the group as lead singer in 1981. Most of the band's material was released on Ginn's independent label, SST Records.

* DownerEnding: ''Damaged'' has a pretty intense one with "Life of Pain" followed by "Damaged 1". Side B of ''My War'', on the other hand, is probably the most epic display of abject misery to ever close out an album.

Black Flag was an American HardcorePunk band formed in 1976 in California. The band was established largely as the brainchild of Greg Ginn, guitarist, primary songwriter and sole continuous member through multiple personnel changes. They are widely considered to be one of the first bands of their genre.

In 2013, Black Flag reunited with Ron Reyes after over twenty years of not performing to mixed reviews from the punk community, with their newest album "What The..." being widely hated by fans. Another group emerged in 2013, consisting of ex-Black Flag members, simply titled ''FLAG''. Greg Ginn sued almost immediately, however the courts ruled in FLAG's favor, citing the fact that people ''can'' distinguish between Ginn's band and the band led by people Greg had kicked out as the reason why they ruled in their favor. Regardless, Ginn continues to tour with Black Flag to this day, with several hired guns performing on bass and drums, and pro skateborder Mike Vallely (who literally fired Reyes ''onstage'') on vocals.
