Who`se got the straight edge? - Richard & Judy - TONIGHT

Recommended Posts

On Richard & JUdy Tonight!

Straight Edgers

Straight Edgers are a subculture of people who don't drink, don't smoke, don't take drugs or have casual sex and are usually vegan. Their beliefs and passion for the subculture are born out of the music, which is called 'Hardcore' and is a derivitive of Punk. Some Straightedgers will be discussing their beliefs in the studio.

I can't believe I've just heard Minor Threat and the Teen Idles mentioned on Channel 4 at half five.

I also like the way Richard made straight edge into a verb. "Straight-edging".

I like it!

This is all very entertaining!

The strange thing is that the Teen Idles 7" is a great record for downing cider to.

Straight edge has it's obvious good points but it annoys me how some "edgers" just take some Minor Threat lyrics and without question make them the basis of their lifestyle.

Richard is the real Alan Partridge. It's uncanny.

Poison Idea were spot on when they released the "Ian MacKaye is an asshole" 12". First straight edge, and then Fugazi. No-one else has caused so much damage.

ok, i was agreeing with you?

it annoys me because it's like they're doing it 'for the image'. i have a friend who's straight edge. she's only that way because her mother was an alcoholic. she doesn't go round broadcasting it all over her livejournal/faceparty. i know a fair handful of people who have I'M STRAIGHT EDGE OMG LOOK AT ME profiles. and it's like "fuck off and die, kthx"

yeah, i'm sorry if i'm offesnive. i don't mind straight edge people. not at all in fact. i'm trying to cut back on drinking myself simply because it's bad for me, i just find it annoying when people broadcast it to the world.

Youth Brigade!

Anyways i'm straight edge, i was before i even knew of the label. I love minor threat and all of the hardcore bands from the time but that fucking X on their hands pisses me off so much, its just egotistical and fucking irritating!

im fairly straight edged....after i brush my teeth i tend to use mouthwash.....

who cares if people are or not? its their choice after all and we cant deny we are all influenced by music in someway or another......and if being straight edged is what that is then oh well...good to you....

But those bands didn't go far enough. At least when Crucial Youth were interfering in peoples lives and telling them what to do they discouraged more relevant moral issues such as poor dental hygeine, swearing, the flat tyre, and masturbation.
