was it good?It has it's moments. I liked Ignite doing Cease Fire, Unearth doing Its Clobbering Time/What's going On and Bane's We Stand Alone. Other tracks you just think are done just like the originals but not as well. You can check out some of the tracks here.

They were definitely emo in context. I've never heard them likened to any bands that I wouldn't also consider emo. and lyrically they were super emo. It's not a slight at all, but I wouldn't call them straight up hardcore at all, they were definitely emo.

I don't know about that either, I'm a year older than you and I was around when those bands were playing, and we always viewed frail the same as ashes, falling forward, elliot, farside, endpoint and mineral. Lyrically they were a super emo band.

lyrics were pretty emo. But Just where I was from they didn't fall in the same genre as ashes copper etc... But in hind site we did consider portraits of past emo and they weren't exactly sdre material. So I can see where you coming from. I just never thought of it that way.

Okay here goes...

First off, I don't feel comfortable telling my age, because I fear I won't be taken seriously. If you talk to me enough you will realize that even though I am young I am mature and willing to commit.

I am from Boise, Idaho

Music: Alexisonfire, Blaqk Audio, AFI, My Chemical Romance, Chiodos

I am new to this whole scene and am not sure whether I am going to become straight edge, joining this site is a step in deciding my future. I would love to be straight edge, but I don't want to commit to something I know I am going to leave one day. I'm not saying that I can't commit to this though, I can, I just don't know if I'm going to yet.

welcome!

you don't have to become edge, it doesn't point anywhere if you do it just for the heck of it. If you find the values of it comforting, and feel that it's a lifestyle you wish to follow, you'll be able to judge for yourself to embrace it. A lot of people claim to be sxe just for the label of it, which is bullshit, it's so much more than that.

i'll recommend you to listen to sxe bands, classic bands that made/helped the sxe movement. you can find a lot of those in the hardcore section of this board.

welcome, hope you'll enjoy your stay.

i just want to say i am glad i found this forum. i really agree with the fact that you should be part of hardcore and support it in order to call yourself straight edge, since without hardcore, that term wouldn't exist. my city actually has a really great straight edge "scene". anyone know anything about some dead city straight edge? erie pa.

I should have done this when I first joined, but heres my piece:

Im 22.

Originally from southern cali but living in mass right now.

Blacklisted, Since the Flood, Agnostic Front, Earth Crisis, Comeback Kid, With Honor.

The last record I bought was a an old comeback kid record, Turn it around.

I do both at shows, but I really enjoy bringin the mosh, so I would say two-step and spin-kick. but not tough-guy hit everyone thats not moshing stuff.

Four bands? gotta say snapcase, strife (one of my faves), youth of today, and then With Honor again because they were awesome for their reunion shows.

Um not quite, far from it. Chino was big into heroine for awhile from my understanding. But they are forsure not straight edge. None of their members are nor is their music by any means.

And also for the record nor are the Deftones a hardcore band.

But then again Hatebreed was on that list too and they aren't sXe either.

Hi my name's James,

I'm 20 years old from Glasgow, Scotland

I've not been straight-edge as long as probably all of you, been sXe for just over three months, been a vegeterian, non smoker and never took drugs in my life though , I just liked to have a drink every now and again but one day I just gave it up because it got boring and pointless. I know some of you will probably be thinking I have no right calling myself straight-edge when I haven't actually been it for that long.

Bands i currently listen to are Joy Division, Rancid, Minor Threat, Fugazi

sXe bands i'd like to see : Minor Threat, Fugazi, Judge

Spin kicks and two-step

What four sxe hxc bands, past or present, would you like to see play a show together?
7 seconds, Minor Threat, Gorilla Biscuits, AFI; I would say their older music when they were considered eastbay hardcore. Albums such as very proud of ya and Answer That and Stay Fashionable. Minor threat did break up and decide not to be sXe anymore and there is fugazi. Im sure you knew that.

I do want to say that I am NOT sXe. I do not do drugs. I did them for years and started at an extremely young age. I did not have a clue about any bands like Minor Threat or any sXe bands or people. Most of the people I have seen with sXe tattoos are pushing needles in to the tattoos cause they are junkies.
I do not want to do drugs at all and my body has been clean of drugs for seven years. I am interested in the sXe lifestyle and I suppose that is why I am here?
I do still smoke but I don’t want to be laying in the gutter shitfaced in my own vomit. I did that to much.

No. The forum is for anyone who is straight edge, claiming, thinking about claiming and also anyone who is even just curious as to what straight edge is. It's a place to ask questions and a place to discuss anything to do with straight edge, hence there are lots of different area's within the forum to discuss different things.

And ovcourse you can learn what straight edge is. You weren't just straight edge one day, it isn't just "who you are", you had to learn about it and actually get a clue before claiming and discussing straight edge with anyone else.

If you want to know what it is or what its all about surely the best advice is to go to a straightedge show and talk to the people involved, failing that talking to people involved on a forum is a good runner up. I feel a wikipedia article is a little further down the list somehow.

Yet , personally i hate when some one asks me about the EDGE.. I tried to hold down ( the first 100 times or so.. but now im frustrated by that question ) .

And Straight Edge show ?? Your lucky to see 1 HardCore band play in a show crowded with metalheads ( as there are no HXC clubs here.. )

Well perhaps if you were more forth coming and helpful to people not in the know about straightedge you may begin to see more hardcore bands playing! And for the record there are no hardcore clubs here either, just venues that can one night have a hardcore show then a week later have an indie pop outfit playing...the only reason hardcore shows exist is because kids like you or i want to have them and put them on. So if someone is asking you about straightedge and stuff you should see that as an oppertunity to make the scene more vibrant!

I'm not sure exactly why you hate helping people out who are genuinely curious about something and its not like its any one particular question, there are so many questions people have. Sure sometimes the questions aren't really anything you'd care to answer and can even at times seem naive/ridiculous but its the effort to learn and seek out advice on things that endears me to the idea of helping someone.

Anyway, Hi Guys! :D

I've been Straight-Edge about a year now, although I have never drunk alcohol, smoked or taken drugs. I guess I've only been Straight-Edge for a year, because it was only a year ago that I heard of Straight-Edge (CM Punk FTW) and found out what it was. I read about it (thank you Wikipedia) and thought "hey... that's basically what I do anyway".

My Interests are sort of Nerdy/Goth - I like Evanescence, the Dresden Dolls, Apple Computers and Star Trek.

I have heard some of the music, I have to admit that I can only stand that type of music for so long, I also love death metal, but I can only listen to it for about an hour before it all starts to sound the same.

Can you recommend any groups that are a it more... I dunno I guess musical would be the word, than those that I have heard?

I have basically only heard one band that I can remember... Minor Threat? Maybe? I dunno, I can't remember. I seem to remember it being a bit overly heavy for my tastes , like I said it was the kind of thing I could enjoy for a while, but then get bored of and have to listen to something else later.

Hmmm, if you think minor threat is overly heavy then i'm not sure what to suggest, i wouldn't really consider them heavy. Stock bands that seem to be favoured by pretty much everyone in the straightedge community are:

Youth of today
Gorilla biscuits
Chain of strength
Battery
10 yard fight

Heh , there are no bands either , sure there are 3-4 bands + my band.. Yet , seeing the same bands over and over again isn't that exiting .

And , dude you never been in my hometown.. I NEVER SAW A STRAIGHT EDGER in my life ( well , in my city at least ) . I know there are some , yet only a few . So , all this mob of 1,000,000 ( ~ population of riga ) - 14-50 edgers.. and they start asking... It's not like they will pass it on , they will say " ask that guy , he told me " to their friends .

I think you completely missed the point. I'll try again, so theres no bands? but 4 or 5 bands is not none and scenes start small all over the place, i don't see what stops you getting bands from other places to play in your town and in return the 4 or 5 bands from your town could play in other places to make things more interesting and expand on the idea of building a scene. Thats what everyone else in the world does.

I never said i had been to your town but it makes no difference, there was no straightedge people in my town for absoloutely years, there were a few people who had heard about it but weren't completely clued up on it and had negative views on it. I answered questions and told people what was up and people then had a much better idea of things, they got much more from speaking with me than you could get out of a wikipedia page. People usually ask because they are interested, i'm unsure as to what "seeing a straightedger" has to do with anything. Some of the people who i spoke with later became edge themselves which was supprising to me, some people simply evaluated their stance on drugs and things which lead to change in one way or another. I wasn't intentionally converting people or preaching about straightedge i was just simply honest, open and helpful to people with genuine interest. I mean if i had your attitude these uneducated people would remain in the dark about what straightedge is and to add to it they would think i was a bit rude and associate that with straightedge.

But with all that said i do understand that people can just continually ask annoying questions that aren't thoughtful in the slightest and it can be bothersome. Some people will want to just argue and talk nonsense with you and it serves no purpose but you shouldn't judge everyone based on how those people bevhave because those people are generally idiots that waste your time but theres always going to be people who are more genuine.

Heya, I'm Tracey. *waves* I've been Edge for about 10 years now, and still going strong. I'm getting ready to start my professional career as a museum curator, and I specialize in Victorian tiles (British specifically). Submitting my masters thesis in (checks calendar) 9 days, and getting married in less than 3 months to the guy I've been dating for 7 years (and who is also edge). I'm a dork, I'm not hot, and I'm not particularly cool. But I'm up for anything, enjoy a good debate, and have a lot of fun with life.

How old are you? 23

Where are you from? This is kinda complicated. I was born and raised in Pittsburgh, PA, USA. Then I moved to Northern Ireland, then back to the states to finish my degree, then I moved to Glasgow, Scotland. So at the moment, I live in Scotland, although I'm (unhappily) returning to America in a month.

List some bands you are into at the moment.
-I'm on a ska kick at the moment. Been enjoying some Toots and the Maytals lately, and rediscovering a Pittsburgh band called The Code, and Whatever It Takes. Not specifically edge, but still good choons.

What is the last record you bought?
-geez...um...wow..it has been a while...I guess it was the Young, Gifted and Black compilation (the first one...its all old reggae and ska and soul).

Choose either pile ons and sing alongs or spin kicks and two-step? I'm a pile ons and sing alongs gal myself.

What four sxe hxc bands, past or present, would you like to see play a show together?

H20 (kinda grew up on them)

Not specifically. It's more likely that I'd be doing valuations for auction houses and such in terms of tiles, but my graduate programme was Decorative Arts and Design, which is basically everything but paintings (wall paper, tiles, dresses, silverwear, china, architecture, stained glass, etc). The tiles is just something I fell into for some reason. Although, there are two museums dedicated strictly to tiles, on at Jackfield in the Ironbridge Gorge in Shropshire, England, and another at Stoke-on-Trent in Staffordshire England. But those are highly prized council jobs and its not likely that they're hiring.

I was perfectly happy to live in America, until I moved to Northern Ireland and discovered how much more there is to life here. Life is slower here, which is good. It isn't 24-7 all the time. It isn't dog-eat-dog and fuck yies if you can't get by. I don't know, its just...I feel like I'm home here. Every time I go back to America, I have culture clash...like it's overstimulating. I land back in Glasgow, and immediately, I relax, reconnect, breathe easier. There's something about it, something about the way people live here, that suits me.

it isn't but it's also a lot harder to get ahead in the UK than it is in the US. The wages are lower, the taxes are higher and everything generally costs more. People in the US do work more than people in UK, but there's also more upward mobility in the US than there is in the UK. I think being there as a student and being there as someone trying to build a life would be very different experiences.

I think being there as a student and being there as someone trying to build a life would be very different experiences.

Taxes are higher, aye, but those taxes pay for my healthcare, which would be $800+ a month for me back in the states because I have type 1 diabetes. I don't pay for my prescriptions (diabetic or otherwise). Education costs less, even with the conversion (home and EU student fees for uni in Scotland are something like 1,300 GBP per year, which gets paid by SAAS, which students pay back only after they earn > 15,000 GBP a year, unlike american FAFSA/Stafford funds that start being paid back after 6 months if you have the money or not). The taxes support the free museums, leisure centres, and other tangible things within the council.

I'm doing both my postgraduate education and trying to get ahead here. Ive been working and applying for permanent work here (i.e. career). I'm very much building a life here for myself. I in no way intend for this move back to America to be permanent (the thought scares the crap out of me).

I don't know about the wage being lower...all of my jobs have paid me equivalent to what I was paid in the states (min. wage in PA is $7.25. Every job I've had here has paid me 7.50 GBP or more).

As for things costing more...I don't know about that. It seems that things cost about the same. Things are more expensive in Ireland, but it's a wee island removed from the continent and lots of places are rural. In Scotland...I've found things to be cheaper or the same price to living in the US (i.e. a loaf of bread costs 1.09 GBP, and it costs $1.09 in the us).

My rent is cheap, but I flatshare in a non-posh neighbourhood and bike commute to uni (in the posh bit), so my rent is 180GBP a month, plus 20GBP for utilities (light, internet).

I dunno, I guess the urge to get ahead just isn't there for me. I just want to live comfortably, do what I love, and have my health. And in terms of that, the UK is a better job market for cultural jobs. Meh, guess its all how you look at it.

The NHS is also completely fucked and bankrupt but that's another discussion all together. You're literally taxed for everything you do in the UK. Own a tv? Pay a license. Own a car, pay a bunch of taxes. Buy anything other than food, pay a shitload of vat.
Then you have you have to payinto national insurance as well. Assuming a simple 22% income tax rate and then 100 pounds a week for NIl, you're looking at literally half of your income going to taxes, and that's just the ones that come out of your paycheck to begin with. The tax difference is significant and shouldn't be discounted.

Yeah but that's actually the root of it. 1.09 pounds is closer to $2.20. The median salary in england is 24k, where here it's $48k and scotland is 21k. So if everything that costs a dollar here costs a pound there and you're making fewer than half as many pounds as you are dollars, it makes a giant difference.



My rent is cheap, but I flatshare in a non-posh neighbourhood and bike commute to uni (in the posh bit), so my rent is 180GBP a month, plus 20GBP for utilities (light, internet).

I dunno, I guess the urge to get ahead just isn't there for me. I just want to live comfortably, do what I love, and have my health. And in terms of that, the UK is a better job market for cultural jobs. Meh, guess its all how you look at it.

it's not even a matter of just getting ahead, it's harder to even stay afloat there. Look at the number of people on welfare in the UK compared to the US. It's hard as hell to live there and everyone I know that does is struggling to feel safe and secure. I'm just saying that going to school somewhere and living there are totally different things and that it may be a lot harder than you think it will be. Next time you're in the pub talk to people about how much money they're able to put into savings. How easy it was for them to buy a decent house or a decent car.

Hi, im Angello!
Im 18. im from IL.

Im not really into straight edge music. Im into Psyclon Nine, Marilyn Manson, ICP, MSI and other random artists.

I do follow the philosophy behind sxe, even though the music i listen to might contradict the way i think.
I would have to say im one of the few around here who is straightedge and means it.
By that i mean, i dont drink at all, smoke at all, or do drugs. And recently i stopped drinking caffinee! Yay me. Anyway.

Yeah that is me. Also i am a Juggalo, but i like i said i'm sxe. So one out a million juggalos who is.

why are you so drawn to music that is completely diametrically opposed to your beliefs? I would imagine it would make going to shows uncomfortable.

Well its not like all they talk about is drugs and smoking. They talk about other things as well. That and i like the way they sound. Manson is my idol, well....except for the drugs and stuff...it's mainly his ideas and philosophies that i admire. As for ICP i think their songs are funny, the beats are good, and i like the cult magic of the dark carnival. I know it's strange, but im often told im a strange kid. lol.

Ive been to a Marilyn Manson show and a MCR show and that's about it. It wasn't uncomfortable at all. I was with my gf at the manson show, whom doesn't do drugs or anything either, and it still was kick ass. I mean yeah there was a ton of drinking and smoking, but i wasn't going to let that spoil my fun. Just as long as i dont do it and she doesn't idrc.

Really? That sucks, yeah didnt happen to me. Though at the MCR concert some asshole was getting pissed because i was pushing and "stepping" on him. Fucking idiot.What the hell does he expect to happen? it's a god damn concert! That crowd was pretty tame, especially compared to the manson crowd; they didnt give a damn.

Yeah, it's pretty annoying, just lucky it wasn't in my mouth. Hahah! (not that would be considered breaking edge anyway :P)
Well for MCR the crowd was probably mostly teenagers who just stand there or it was his first concert, I remember being wary of those around me at my first show. At a show I expect to get hit a few times, but I tend to be in the pit nowadays.

Name's Chelsea. I'm 18. I'll be 19 in about 2 weeks. I've been straight edge all of my life.

I'm from North Carolina.

Bands I've been listening a lot to lately are generally very angry. Hasn't been a good month.

Year Zero by NIN. All of my other music I've downloaded from itunes.

Oh, what's a spin kick and two-step? :P

I really would love to see minor threat play (pfft, wishful thinking!).

yeah i saw silverstein about a year ago when they were on the "never shave again tour". they went like 9 months without shaving and they all looked homeless and gross. they were pretty lazy on stage. i like to see bands go insane and move around, and guitar spins and all that good stuff. i figured they were probably just tired. since 2002 the used has been my favorite band
