Black metal?[edit]

I don't know this band but still I seriously doubt there's the slightest bit of black metal influence. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 03:27, 8 December 2011 (UTC)

BLS/HAMC Assocations?[edit]

Does anyone know what, if any associations there are between Black Label Society and the Hells Angels Motorcycle Club? Can't see their backs, but the band's dress in the article picture sure as hell looks like MC cuts to me (and I'm that kind of guy), and the stage hand in the background is sporting a Red & White's T-shirt. Since my grand-Uncle was HA, I'd love to know if anyone can answer this, as anything having to do with the ol' 81 is family history to me. -- (talk) 21:48, 2 November 2009 (UTC) Einhannder

Sad to say, far from it. There have been numerous occasions in the UK where the larger MC clubs have confiscated the patches and destroyed them - as you know yourself, they are very similar to patches that normally have to be earned by Prospects in the clubs concerned. It came to a head in Manchester in 2005, where Satans Slaves MC took the matter into their own hands. Here's a link to the Black Label Society's website (they have now requested that the patches or any t-shirt, etc. bearing the insignia are not worn to gigs to be on the safe side):'s%2FPatches%2FThe+UK John (talk) 07:43, 18 November 2010 (UTC)

Hard rock[edit]

Some of BLS's albums were heavily hard-rock influenced, for e.g. their debut album Sonic Brew, and as such, I think the genre should be added to the infobox. Teh Thrasher (talk) 19:59, 9 September 2014 (UTC)

Hello. If you want to incorporate hard rock, the source must say the band plays hard rock, not that an album is hard rock. If the ref describes Sonic Brew as hard rock, then hard rock should be added in the album article. Cheers.--Retrohead (talk) 20:19, 9 September 2014 (UTC)
Just found a source that claims BLS played hard rock... and it's the band's page at Allmusic. I wanted to ask if this is a reliable source to add.-Teh Thrasher (talk) 21:03, 9 September 2014 (UTC)
Sorry Teh, but I assume you've been watching the genre sidebar→bellow Zakk's photo. According to WP:ALBUM/SOURCES#Online only, the genre is acceptable only if it is derived from the prose, which is not the case here.--Retrohead (talk) 21:40, 9 September 2014 (UTC)
Okay, I took my time and read the entire page. Now I understand how this whole thing works. I'm gonna try and find a reliable source describing BLS as hard rock.-Teh Thrasher (talk) 22:22, 9 September 2014 (UTC)

Notable controversy.[edit]

Hi. I only know of this bands existence from their members wearing patches whilst riding motorcycles and getting the snot slapped out of them by patched and affiliate members of actual motorcycle clubs. How is that not even mentioned in the article? I was wondering whether the band had changed their logo given how much ... re-education was being handed out to people wearing it. And I'm absolutely shocked that there's no reference to it. (talk) 14:21, 11 August 2015 (UTC)

If you can find a reliable source that covers it, feel free to add something about it. Nymf (talk) 15:07, 11 August 2015 (UTC)
