* "Armageddon Man," off of ''Family Man'', and "I Can See You," which could very easily be a candidate for one of the creepiest songs of all time, both musically and lyrically.
* The entire second side of ''My War'' seemed designed to outdo the claustrophobic sludge of the ''Damaged'' version of "Damaged 1", as it featured three incredibly slow, heavy songs, each clocking in at over 6 minutes. YMMV on how effective it was, but the songs featured some particularly feral Rollins screams and guitar leads that were atonal even compared to Gregg Ginn's normal playing style.

* "Room 13" is easily this with its screeching guitar leads and Henry Rollins screaming some very unsettling lyrics about an unstable man begging for emotional support while threatening the person's life.

* "Damaged I" initially started as your typical title track off of a seminal punk recording, until Greg Ginn decided that the backing track be played at a slower tempo to suit HenryRollins vocals, making the final result, well, upsetting to say the least.

* Add this to the fact that the band has a reputation amongst troubled teenagers who like to sit in their rooms and listen to their music over and over again, and it is not hard to believe that Greg Ginn, who wrote most of Black Flag's songs, could be the devil reincarnate. None of these have been uploaded to youtube, but if you're curious (and you presumably have little to no intentions of sleeping tonight) you could always just go to Grooveshark.com and type in the names of the songs you want to listen to. Sweet dreams.
