as for the avatar go to "UserCP" near the top of the page then under "your control pannel" on the left click on "Edit Avatar" - its about a third of the way down under the settings and options title. From there it is pretty much self explanitory.

What's up folks!

My name's Tim, I'm 21 and I live in Ukraine. I'm currently into Deftones and various glitch\experimental\ambient\industrial electronic music.

My last purchased record would be "100th Window" by Massive Attack. Usually just buy music online or just download it.

Pile ons and sing alongs and pogo dancing! LOL

I'd defo love to see Earth Crisis - the one straight edge band I'd really love to see live, but would also enjoy to see 7 seconds.

I wish there were more straight edge bands that made quality music in terms of professional recording mixing and stuff... DIY is good but it's just so hard for me to listen to low-quality home made recordings. The new earth crisis album is f*cking awesome!

Yeah well me neither, but usually most sxe bands tend to record their stuff at cheap local "basement studios" or at home, and very seldom do they focus on the quality. And its a shame. But on the other hand its good cause it stays underground and has less chance of turning into mainstream, which is very unlikely to happen anyway:)

you need to start checking out more bands, i would say that the quality of recordings in hardcore has been real good since a shitload of years now. straight edge bands are not the exception.

Hi,


Back in HS I didn't really understand straight edge. I thought it was more or less another punk movement. I claimed edge because technically I was edge. However, I sort of quit claiming and started drinking and partying. I guess it was where I was young. It took me to this point in my life to really understand what it's about. I was wanting to know if I can still claim edge because in all reality, I had never really claimed edge. Now, I'm staying clean of alcohol and have quit smoking. Also, I've never really had promiscuous sex or sex period. Of course I did some things in my youth but all in all I've kept my commitment of no sex. I feel good and have dropped friends who have been bad influences. Also, I'm going to become a vegetarian when my second semester of college rolls around. I hope that my youthful stupidity doesn't exile me from the edge. Thanks for the help.

12-19-2010, 10:57 AM
wel from what i can gather so far the main points are that its a subculture of people sharing a love of hardcore music and abstaining from alcohol, smoking and drugs. i have also seen quite a few places mentioning veganism and no sex and as i am a meat eater and am in a long term relationship wondered if these were fundamental beliefs within straight edge, i also noticed something about militant activity and gang like violence and again as i am not a violent person i wondered how fundamental this is.
some of the other things i came across which worried me a little were so to speak neo nazi skin head groups claiming straight edge, and was looking to know hoe common this was as i dont share these beliefs.
however i do not drink anymore or smoke or do drugs i quit the first two a year ago and although i have had a couple of drinks over the year and the odd smoke but want to cut it out alltogether and live a clean life, so it would be muchly appreciated if u could answer my questions and add anything i have missed

All the militancy stuffs/violence is way over-represented (because that's "newsworthy"). That was mostly the theme of my thesis of last year. Most straight edge kids reject those stuffs.
As far as veganism, it's part of my thesis of this year... so far, I've found out that there are some relations (because of some sxe bands promoting it etc) but no one believes you have to be a vegan or a vegetarian (except for 1 person on the dozen I've interviewed so far, and all my readings confirmed that people clearly do not think it is anything near necessary). About the sex thing, some people think you shouldn't be sleeping around, but many also think it has nothing to do with sxe beliefs. And anyway, if you're in a committed relationship, no one will ever tell you you're not straight because of that.
Hope it helped! I thought that my many many many hours of research might as well be of little help haha.
And some people may not agree with me, because the straight edge subculture is just so vast, different and encompasses such a variety of people that it is impossible to describe what it means to every single straight edge kids.

Its true we all have different beliefs, different approaches, like me and my friends for example we get hated for being edge people talk about you and stuff like that, they want to fight you for no reason, but then again is up to you if your going to fight back and defend your pride, there are posis and theyre different opinions, but trust me they are going to TAG you saying OMG he dosent do the shit we all do!

Where are you from?
Spent all my time from birth till I was four years old in Delaware, and have lived in/around Louisville, KY ever since.

List some bands you are into at the moment.
I like new school and old school. Lately I've been listening to Sick of It All, Liferuiner, 7 Seconds, The Acacia Strain, The Ghost Inside, Earth Crisis, etc.

What is the last record you bought?
Stick To Your Guns - The Hope Division

Choose either pile ons and sing alongs or spin kicks and two-step?
BOTH

What four sxe hxc bands, past or present, would you like to see play a show together?
Minor Threat (obviously), 7 Seconds, Rise Against (if you want to count them), Sick of It All

Personal info/bio:
I used to be drug free until my curious nature caught up with me my freshmen year of high school, it was then that I began to experiment with smoking marijuana. After getting a grip of myself and realizing that I was throwing my life away I claimed straight edge. Most of the males in both of my parents' families have battled alcoholism and heart disease due to alcoholism and I decided I wasn't about to continue the family tradition of poisoning myself. That is when I claimed the Edge, and I've loved the decision ever since.

Do you guys think I will receive a lot of crap because of my past marijuana use? Not that it matters what people think, I just want to know if many edge kids consider me untrue because of the past. Thanks guys, it's good to be in a community filled with good people.

hey there, welcome. 7 seconds is a great band, but i'm not sure sick of it all are straight edge, i remember reading an interview about some of them being, but also read from people i trust that they're pretty far from being anything like that.

Hey there everyone,
My name's Matt, I'm 19 and from Cincinnati Ohio. I'm really into Emmure, Bury your dead, Whitechapel, the Acacia Strain, and Carnifex. The last album I bought was Frank Sinatra's Ring-Ding-Ding. I love being in the pit doing spin kicks, but I'm always down for a good sing along. I don't really know of any straightedge bands except for a couple local ones, and they were Suicide Pact and Suffocate Faster, which I wish would come back as well :P
I joined up here because I only know one other sxe person in my area that isn't a total tool or douchebag to everyone and I'd like to see this stereotype broken by meeting some cool people here.

Hi. I'm bigheadjoe. I chose striaght edge for myself on June 26th, 2012, after 16 years of regular drug use. Never was an "addict" per se, as in never got too heavy into harder drugs, but I definitely see now just how dependent I was on getting high to dull my senses and allow me to aimlessly drift through my life. I've never felt better about any choice I have made in my entire life. My friends and family have all been extremely supportive, and I felt the need to share this experience with anyone who was interested through a blog. The blog is Never Too Old To Claim Straight Edge
(http://nevertoooldsxe.wordpress.com) check it out and follow along on my journey. This is all very new to me and I may seem a little naive at times, but I think that's good. I think a fresh perspective on something that many people have shied away from can only benefit the community and maybe even get a few people on board. If one person reads my blog and decides to claim edge for themselves, that was never the intention of starting it, but it would be special for sure. Now, to the questions at hand:

How old are you? 30

Where are you from? Baltimore, MD. Living in Dallas, TX.

List some bands you are into at the moment. Obviously have been digging into the history of straight edge punk and hardcore since claiming edge. Always loved Glassjaw, saw them back in like 2000 opening for The Deftones. Loving Ligeia because their sound is very similar to gj for me. Throwdown, xbishopx, Have Heart, Comeback Kid, and many others. It's pretty overwhelming right now.

What is the last record you bought? xbishopx, and Roman's Revenge by Nicki Minaj, at the same time. :)

Choose either pile ons and sing alongs or spin kicks and two-step? I'm 30. Can I say neither? I prefer headphones and a good book or some blogging. I'm like nerd edge or something. It's OK. I'm accepting of my old man status.

What four sxe hxc bands, past or present, would you like to see play a show together? Ligeia, Throwdown, Glassjaw, and Minor Threat headlining.

Hope to get to know many of you soon.

I'm 19, almost 20; located in Portland, Oregon, US; and I love punk, metal, electronica, semicolons, and the Oxford comma.

I haven't been listening to a ton of sXe stuff lately. Mostly it's been NWOBHM bands like Saxon, Savage, and Tank. I never really got into Maiden, but I do like Motorhead (excuse the lack of umlaut, I'm lazy).

I've been drug and drink free since the day I was born, but it became an active endeavor when I was about 16. Since then I've wanted to join some kind of sXe community, but never really got around to it until now. So here's to procrastination, the straight edge way!

Hi I'm Paul.

One quick question, to be classed as straightedge do I have to listen to punk/hardcore. I appreciate that that's where it all began in the early 80s but is it not just a case of abstaining from drink and drugs?

Hello Paul, welcome to the forums. No you do not have to listen to punk/hardcore, since as you mentioned that is where sXe originated from, most people who are sXe tend to be into that genre of music. But anyone can label themselves as sXe, no matter what religion, race, ethnicity, music tastes, food tastes, color of underwear they prefer, it doesn't matter :-). We're just here to all get along.

what's the difference between someone that's straight edge and just someone that doesn't drink?

Thank-you for clearing that up for me.

The reason I asked is another forum made it abundantly clear that this had to be the case. I wanted a second opinion.

It's not that I am not into that sort of music, I am just uneducated about it. Music I like is classic rock such as Van Halen, Motley Crue etc.

Anyway, hello everyone. :-)

IMO, not drinking is just that, not drinking. If you claim edge, I believe you need to adhere to the lifestyle that was originally created, no drinking, no drugs, no promiscuity. People who don't drink, could still very well be smokers, or could smoke weed, etc.

People who don't drink, could still very well be smokers, or could smoke weed, etc. The lifestyle is about more than just not drinking or doing drugs though. Someone who's sober is just someone that's sober, that doesn't make them straight edge. Knowing what straight edge doesn't make them straight edge. It's being apart of the subculture that does and the music plays a huge role in that subculture.

I donīt share your taste in music, nor your definition of classic rock probably...and as you have noticed there are some personal (and probably partly regional) differences in defining sxe concerning belonging to a certain music scene, also about sexual philosophy and about being vegan. What unites us is for most also the music, but most importantly a drugfree lifestyle.

Hello and welcome to this forum.

My name is Anthony. I'm from Rapid City, South Dakota. I'm 25 years old and currently I am really into King Fantastic (which you'll find odd I;m sure since it's gangster rap) but lately I've been diving back in Minor Threat, Sick of it all, Rancid and Throwdown. I'm very, very recently straightedge. I used to hang out with "gangsters" and drug dealers and that got me into a whole heap of trouble. Currently on probation for 4 years for possession. I've never done any "hard" drugs but used to smoke marijuana on a regular basis but haven't smoked in nearly two years, Partly because I'm on probation but mainly because I don't like the kinds of people that are involved in that scene. I'm a comic book geek. I love tattoos as well. I don't drink because, well, it's a waste of money and I really hate the way it makes me feel. I still go to bars on rare occasions. Such as Halloween. Which is, by far, my favorite holiday. This year I'm going as Black Mask from Batman. Otherwise I just stay at home and play X-Box or watch movies. I am a former smoker and tobacco chewer. I basically adopted the straight edge lifestyle because of the health reasons and the fact that my entire family are drinkers, smokers and drug users. And I've seen what it does to them. I've followed the sxe lifestyle for years but never really adhered to it. Just knew several edge people and just recently decided to adopt it as my lifestyle.

Hello everyone!

My name is Bryan.

I'm 28 years old and from New Jersey.

Bands I'm in to: All That Remains, As I Lay Dying, In This Moment, Boys Night Out.

I decided to follow the straightedge lifestyle for my health, and mainly for my son Avery. I want to be able to set a good example for him.

I recently went vegan 3 weeks ago. Not totally vegan at first. I would have meat and such 1 meal per week. Now I am going 100% vegan all the time, because after eating meat and cheese for the one day in the first 2 week I felt like CRAP afterward and the next day.

Later,
Bryan

Hey everyone!! I'm not actually new, but I haven't been to the forums for quite a few years now. I'm glad to see Rodrigo is still around. So I'm introducing myself just in case no-one remembers me:

My name is Oswaldo. I'm 27, won't turn 28 until next year. I'm a recruiter during the weekdays, a close-up magician on the weekends and I'm born and raised in Tijuana, Mexico.

At the moment I'm a lot into Morrissey, City & Colour, Thick As Blood and starting to go back to listen my old albums from like Unearth, Underoath, A Fire Inside (Their 90's stuff), Ignite, Misfits, Minor Threat, Poison The Well, It Dies Today, etc. 'Cause I really am tired of hearing hipster music everywhere I go, so I'm going back to my sweet, dear to my heart roots.

Last records I bought, bought them for $2 bucks at a local store at the same time about two months ago, they were Danzig: "4", Rollins Band: "The End Of Silence" and The Chemical Brothers: "Dig Your Own Hole".

I prefer pile ons and sing alongs.

Four bands I would like to see live? I'll throw 5 because I never got the chance to: Gorilla Biscuits, Minor Threat, Suffocate Faster, Youth Of Today and Love Is Red.

SOOO, WHAT'S BEEN GOING UP?? Is Dusty still living in England and married to... Sorry, I totally forgot the name! (x_X)

I joined the site because I have found it increasingly difficult to find people who share my interests and views. I have lost friends to addiction and substance abuse and just do not want that sort of thing in my life anymore so my only option is making new friends. That is where you guys come in.

I'm not hardcore and don't pretend to be anything I am not.
