I'm removing this redirect to the song. At the very least it should go to the disambiguation page, and possibly to the page about the playing card. For consistency with Ace of Spades, it's going to the latter. toll_booth 14:23, 13 August 2007 (UTC)

There should be a picture of a typical distincive-looking ace of spades card in here, since that's what the card's known for. 70.18.105.41 (talk) 22:25, 30 July 2009 (UTC)

I am trying to find a reliable(!) source determining why the Ace of Spades is considered a Death card, but always run into the explanation offered here too: That Americans used it as such in Vietnam. Sometimes there's the nebulous addition that in fortune telling the spade or the ace of spades means death or misfortune and to that I cannot find a proper source either. The only "official" death card seems to be found in the Tarot (as Nr. 13 of the "great Arcana") and since the playing cards of a "normal" deck are said to be the same as the tarot cards of the "small Arcana" (namely the swords), the Ace would have to be the one of swords and cannot be the death card (if I get this right...) The few cartomancy sources actually stating that the ace of spades means death are completely unsourced and appear to simply assert the fact.
