Controversial Album Covers VI (Pt. 4)

Year: 1984

Black Flag: Family Man

The Problem: The punk ethos manifested itself in a good few nasty-looking album covers. Among them, Californian outfit Black Flag chose a suicidal father, gun-to-temple, for the release of the 1984 LP, ironically titled ‘Family Man’. Presumably the family man in question wanted to get the job done before social services saw the state of his children.

My Take: Yikes! I do like the irony, though.
