"Black Label" is the first single from heavy metal band Lamb of God, off their debut album "New American Gospel", as well as their first single and video overall.

The video features black & white footage of the band performing live as well as brief, dramatic shots of a young man in a graveyard. The band's live performance of "Black Label is notorious for inciting the crowd into forming the "wall of death." Due to fan injuries, however, the direct inciting of such an act on behalf of the band is prohibited.

The song is also featured on the game "Tony Hawk's Underground 2". In 2007, the satellite radio station Hard Attack held a contest in which fans call in and attempt to sing "Black Label" over the phone (a task made difficult because of the apparent unintelligibleness of the lyrics). The best performer would get to perform with the band live.
