They played their first show as 'Black Flag' on January 27, 1979, in Redondo Beach. Ginn's brother Raymond Pettibon, stated "If a white flag means surrender, a black flag represents anarchy." Their new name was reminiscent of the anarchist symbol, the insect spray of the same name, and of the British heavy metal group Black Sabbath, one of Ginn's favorite bands.

As well as being central to the creation of hardcore, they were part of the first wave of American West Coast punk rock and are considered a key influence on the punk subculture.

Along with being among the earliest punk rock groups to incorporate elements of heavy metal (particularly in their later records), there were often overt freestyles, jazz (mainly free jazz), breakbeat and contemporary classical elements in their sound, especially in Ginn's guitar playing, and the band interspersed records and performances with instrumentals throughout their career.

For the record, "White Minority" was sung by a Mexican (and a Columbian drummer) and Black Flag removed that song from their sets after Reyes left.

Reyes was in the band only a few months before quitting mid-performance (for the remainder of that gig, the group played an extended version of "Louie Louie" and invited audience members to take turns singing).

This was also the lineup that toured up and down the West Coast for the first time, the version most fans outside of LA first saw.

It should be noted that one of the songs Ron Reyes sang on the Jealous Again EP was "White Minority" which has often been cited as proof of racism in Black Flag or hardcore punk in general.

Black Flag forged a unique sound early on that mixed the raw simplicity of the Ramones with atonal and microtonal guitar solos and frequent tempo shifts.
