straight edge is a lifestyle its all about keeping your head
straight & to not poison your body with alcohol, drugs, smoking & one night stands & just have fun with out that. straight edge began in the hardcore punk scene in the 1980s "Minor Threat" the very band who made the movement made a song called "Straight Edge" witch changed the lifes of alot of the punks who started to follow this lifestyle many of them decided to quit alcohol & drugs.
The band members who was Straight Edge at the time are no longer Straight Edge & that band was not a long lived band as for the members moved on to other bands.
The "X" symbol plays a big roll in the straight edge movement the very people who are in this movement mark an "X" on there hands to show that they are straight edge & proud of it!.
This straight edge movement did die out abit but later it came back late 80s/90s & such bands like "earth crisis" added veganism to it as well even no it was fine how it was befor..
The song straight edge by Minor Threat where is the part where they say dont eat meat???? WTF?..
Alot of the kids in the late 80s early 90s straight edge movement get in to a pack to jump a drunk on the streets & drug dealers keeping the streets safe so these straight edgers didnt think any better by attacking people by out numbering them but it has to be done one way or another they dressed less punk by chucking away there studded leather jackets & more well how could i put it hmm more gangsta like bandanas, Nike shoes, baggy pants, base ball caps some times the wrong way round, & a jock jacket with straight edge written at the back, & hoodies, it was more of a Youth Crew thing now but still straight edge was strong.
straight edge Hardcore music of the late 80s to early 90s had a less punk sound to more of a metal like sound.
The straight edge scene of the 2000s is still going strong but many people do not notice cause the posers have taken over it just looks like one big joke now these emo scene kids or whatever the f*ck you want to call them just ruin it these kids of today mark an "X" on there hand just to be trendy & they pose like a whore on myspace.com to grab attention its only a trendy thing to them yet they have sex with anyone like a whore does & that breaks the straight edge rules these emo scene kids who goes around saying there straight edge there called fake-edgers & if you see one just kick the living daylights out of them cause straight edge is a lifestyle not a trendy MTV thing.
straight edge is a lifeStyle.
