-Black Flag
-Husker Du
-Minor Threat
-THe Replacements

-Big Black
-Fugazi
-Mudhoney
-Beat Happening (Which I am very interested in hearing more stuff from)
-Dino Jr.

not bad if you ask me! I'm pretty Hardcore/ Punk/ No-wave illiterate, so the book helps a lot

It's pretty good! It was written by Michael Azerrad and I'm not a big fan of his writing style (he did one of the Nirvana Books), but it's plenty informative

The first four years. Nice and sketchy.

Well... First Four Years wasn't really an album, just a collection of all their early EP's. But if you're counting it as an album for the poll then my vote most certainly goes to that. However, Damaged would be, indisputeably, not even opinion-based really, the BEST Black Flag ALBUM.

Personally, I prefer the First Four Years and Everything Went Black over Damaged, but Damaged is an album and also comes together as an album the best out of all of them.

Second would go to Slip It In, which I've always preferred just an incy bit above My War, which would be third.

After that, I'd choose either Loose Nut or In My Head, which both had great tracks as well as some weak ones.

If I could place the Process of Weeding Out EP in the lineup, I'd put it right after My War.

Next I'd say Family Man, which I really like. A lot of people hate the Flag's instrumental stuff but I can't get enough of it. Greg Ginn has his shit together.

Keith Morris is incredibly underrated as a performer and vocalist as far as I'm concerned.

It's not a proper album, just a compilation. And only girls like compilations.

I appear to have blocked from the Black Flag page on Facebook for a comment I made about Bad Brains.

And it's still Damaged.

"Damaged" of course!!!! with tons of coffee. same intensity affect can be produced of course with FunHouse, In Utero and White Light/White Heat, etc. raw power bby.

don't listen to it as much as i did when in my teens and early 20's and last time i rocked it very hard was in 2007 and yes DEz was an awesome guff/hoarse vocalist and rhythm/extra guitarist that filled out the sound very well, but i love Rollins because he was intense and funny all at the same time that gave Damaged it's charm.

my only prob with the record is the drum sound which gives the weak production a comical/lame/dated effect. was it Ginns or SPots idea to imitate toy drums? i don't know, but i did find a solution.....Windows Media Player set on WOW effect BOAST all the way, but the new versions doesn't work as well. i love Robo's drumming and even Iggy would agree.

killer album but just needs a reMIX...................... bad. i hate shitty drum sounds and that's why i love Sufer Rosa. every real honest rock album should sound like that.

At this point, I only have Process of Weeding Out on vinyl, and Everything Went Black on CD. I just got Process last year, it's got cool quasi-jazz guitar and strange jams... jazz fusion and the Dead filtered through hardcore damaged brains...
