A way of living involving no drugs, alcohol, or premicious sex. This term originally came from a 1980's hardcore band named Minor Threat. They wrote a song called "Straight Edge" (you wouldnt guess). Most people don't know why they were ACTUALLY straight edge. As many people know, the 1980's hardcore was a group of people who just wanted to be different than everyone else. At this time period, all the kids were smoking weed, drinking beer and doing all that shit. These hardcore kids did it to be different. In today's society, most straight edge kids don't know about this and are just straight edge to be cool.
Back in the day, Minor Threat was a straight edge hardcore band.

losers who listen to their parents when they tell them propaganda about drugs, sex and alcohol. people who dont know how to have a good time, usually are much more boring than the majority of people. mainly consists of social outcasts, and are often the laughing stock of popular kids who socialize and have lives. the men are generally afraid of vagina's and women secretly finger themselves to the thought of nick jonas. search up "pussy" for an alternate definition of straight edges. being very religious people, they tend to shun away anyone who questions or does not beleive in their religion, which is usually maintream western religions like christianity or catholism, judging first, asking questions later. often they think they're better than drug users and drinkers, but youll never find them off their computer actually socializing, cause everyone else is drinking and they dont wanna be apart of the excitement. they're usually the result of alcoholic parents, determined not to fall in the footsteps of their elders. they put X's on their arms because they think having this 'mysterious' letter on their body will make up for the fact that they are drop dead boring and very annoying to be around. close to no one wants to hang out with them, and the only people that can stand them are other straight edges and their parents. they say they dont need drugs to have fun, but they tend to stay home on a friday night rather than actually going out.

Once affiliated with the conservative element of the punk movement (against drugs, alcohol and casual sex, extremist elements were anti-abortion and sometimes violent) in the 1980s. Now, however, the meaning can also include people who distinguish themselves from their peer group by abstaining from drugs and alcohol by personal choice rather than by affiliation with the punk subculture ideology.
Pete wears electrical-tape X's on his hands and burns down abortion clinics, he's a punk-rock mix of Ronald Reagan and the Muslim Brotherhood

Pete doesn't poke the smot with the rest of us cause he's straight edge, but we love him anyway cause he bakes us lots of betty crocker when we're high.
