When Everything Went Black was first released in 1983, Black Flag was in the middle of a backbreaking legal dispute with Unicorn Records. As a result of litigation, the band was prevented from using the Black Flag name on any records. Hence the original packaging for this album, which listed only the names of individual bandmembers on the cover this was rectified on subsequent issues.

    Black Flag messed up!

    This record is just boring and plain not fast or exciting like most Black Flag. There are good songs like gimmie gimmie gimie but the rest isn't good.
