It’s been a year full of lawsuits and such for the reunited Black Flag, but the band’s first album in 28 years is now available for streaming. You can check out What The… below while gawking at the album art. We’ve talked about how…subpar (that’s a nice word for it) the cover is before, but it’s not really something you can leave alone. And now we actually know who to blame. In a post on his Facebook page, vocalist
Not Henry Rollins Ron Reyes owned up to creating the art and stated that he knew some people wouldn’t like it:
Well I gotta admit that I was the one who designed this. I submitted several designs all of which I liked much better. But this is the one that stuck. Originally it was black n white but then I was asked to add some color. I was aiming for something kinda fun and not serious like some early Descendents art. I fully expected that some folks would hate it. I guess I was right. Does that make me prophetic? Lol. lighten up folks geesh its only rock n roll.
But hey, it’s all about the music right? Right. So check out the stream and then open up Windows Paint to try and make a new album cover yourself why don’t you?
