Black Flag, who have also been touring north America, features co-founder Greg Ginn, drummer Gregory Moore and vocalist Ron Reyes.

He claimed that he and his label SST Records owned the exclusive rights to the Black Flag name – and Flag variation – and the band's iconic logo, which Flag currently use on tour. Ginn was seeking an injunction against Flag performing live as well. However, a judge ruled that SST does not own the rights to the Black Flag copyright and that Ginn has no special rights to any of the trademarks. Listen to "What the..." below:
