Why Two Versions?

Because second singer for Black Flag, Ron Reyes, legendarily quit the band mid-show, leaving the remaining members to play “Louie Louie” for the rest of their set. Ron agreed to finish recording the Jealous Again EP, but subsequent bad blood led to the band deciding to bill him as “Chavo Pederast” (implying he was a pedophile) on the record sleeve when the EP was released.

Since calling him Chavo was more of a “mean-spirited” joke than Ron’s nom de punk, it seemed more appropriate and historically accurate to make a shirt listing him with the name his friends at the time knew him by (Ron), and not the name they slapped on him in anger (Chavo).

How does Ron feel about it? To quote from Stevie Chick's Spray-Paint The Walls: The Story of Black Flag:

At the time, I’m not even sure I understood the derogatory nature of the name, and I don’t think I would have cared anyway. It seemed a very natural, punk-rock thing to do, and I would have done the same thing if I were in their shoes…I didn’t care one bit… Until I started having kids [laughs]. When…the meaning of that name became more apparent to me, then it was something I felt a little shame over. I found I had to explain myself, a lot, when people called me Chavo Pederast.

Do you view history as being written by the winners, the losers, or impartial third parties? Let your philosophy guide you, punk.
