Black Cross[edit]

"Black Cross" is 45 Grave's debut single, released in 1981 on Goldar Records.[3] It and B-side "Wax" were not featured on their 1984 debut album, Sleep in Safety, but were both later included on the Autopsy collection, and remained staples of their live performances.

"Black Cross" was covered by alternative rock band Red Hot Chili Peppers on their Live in Hyde Park album.
