Greg Ginn is most famous as the leader, lead guitarist, and songwriter of Black Flag. He formed the band in Hermosa Beach, California, in 1976. Since then, the band members kept changing except for Ginn, but the group's explosive live shows and their presence in the punk documentary 'The Decline Of Western Civilization' made them gain a huge fan following.
The band is one of the first hardcore punk rock bands. The band disbanded in 1986 but reunited in 2003 and 2013. The sound of Black Flag combined the clarity of the Ramones with regular rhythm transitions and atonal guitar solos. Ginn primarily penned the band's lyrics.
Like other punk rock bands from the end of the '70s and '80s, Black Flag expressed an anti-authoritarian and non-conformist expression in their songs with depictions of social seclusion and neurosis, deprivation, and paranoia. Such themes were incorporated further when Henry Rollins took the position of the band's lead singer in 1981. Several of the band's songs were released through Ginn's independent record label, SST Records.
