An american goth band that was founded in 1979, by Rozz Williams, in Los Angeles Califorina. They were a remarkable band, until Rozz left the band and guitarist Valor Kand, kept the name Christian Death after promising to change it. Valor destroyed the band, that was once the child of Rozz's genius.
Pete: Man I can't believe that asshole Valor ruined Christian Death!
Sue: There is no Christian Death without Rozz!
In addition to TheEye5000's definition I would also like to ad a few other artists who have an album by the name of "the Black Album":
Buzzy Linhart 1972 The Damned 1980 Prince 1987 Kino 1990 L.S.G. 1998 Mad Trucker Gone Mad 2000 Junction Creek 2000 Oda 2001 K-Otix 2002 Edenpark 2003 Akhenaton 2004
So in reality, Jay-Z and Metallica are copying The Damned and Buzzy Linhart
Joe: So I was listening to the Black Album yesterday...
Ira: Uhh, which one?
Joe: Dude, Metallica.
Ira: Pift, loser. The Damned's Black Album is better than Metallica. Period.
