My War!!!
BLACK FLAG Full Set at The Stone 1984

1984 was a fucking year to remember! One of my all-time favorite bands released three albums in one year, and played a crazy amount of gigs. I’m talking about BLACK FLAG, who were on fire during this era. The lineup of Rollins, Ginn, Roessler and Steveson did some stellar damage while they were together. I love Chuck on bass, but I won’t front, Kira brought something really special to BLACK FLAG’s groove. Looking back on my youth, some of my coolest days or nights were spent watching them perform. By 1984, they were more than just a hardcore band – BLACK FLAG’s music had become a sonic beacon of weirdness for all of society’s rejects to tune into. Listening to them around this time opened up my mind to check other shit out. One thing that was evident during 1984 was that Henry had become way more comfortable as a frontman and seemed to be more into the new direction they were headed. By this time, their gigs were more about headbanging than slamming. I’m so excited to be sharing a full 1984 San Francisco show at the Stone, with BLACK FLAG showing the world why when they hit the stage they could not be fucked with! What’s extra awesome about this footage is that it’s professionally shot, plus you get to see the band from some killer angles (I was at this show and it slayed!!!).

I fans of Punk and Hardcore that grew up in the 80s and they favored the first BF with the singer from Circle jerks. I myself am a Rollins fan, so maybe I am biased by saying that I favor this 1984 version. Plus, I grew up in the 90s

This version of BF and the 5 piece line up are my favorites. All of them are good though (excluding anything post 2000 of course).
