Black Flag - Bad news for Adam Ant

Where band name Black Flag comes from - Thomas Tew pirate flagHardcore punk rock band from Hermosa Beach, California, put up on one single stable factor throughout the years: guitarist and composer Greg Ginn (not to be confused with Greg Kihn). Many consider Black Flag to be one of the first hardcore punk bands.

Symbolism is blowing in from every quarter with this band name. If a white flag symbolizes surrender, then the black flag stands for the opposite, which is anarchy.

Black Flag is also an insecticide brand. When Adam Ant (see there) performed in California for the first time, Black Flag followers distributed buttons with the text 'Black Flag kills Ants'.

Active: 1976-1986; 2003, USA
