Starting in 1981 via MINOR THREAT's revolutionary call to arms, the clean and positive straight edge hardcore punk movement took hold and prospered during the 1980s, earning a position as one of the most durable yet chronically misunderstood music subcultures. Straight edge created its own sound and visual style, went on to embrace vegetarianism, and later saw the rise of a militant fringe. As the “don’t drink, don’t smoke” message spread from Washington, D.C., to Boston, California, New York City, and, eventually, the world, adherents struggled to define the fundamental ideals and limits of what may be the ultimate youth movement. TONY RETTMAN traces the story of straight edge from adolescent origins to enduring counterculture via fresh first-hand accounts from the clear and alert members of Minor Threat, SS DECONTROL, YOUTH OF TODAY, DYS, SLAPSHOT, UNIFORM CHOICE, 7 SECONDS, STALAG 13, JUSTICE LEAGUE, CHAIN OF STRENGTH, NO FOR AN ANSWER, INSTED, GORILLA BISCUITS, JUDGE, BOLD, PROJECT X, LARM, BROTHERHOOD, SHELTER, H2O, HALF OFF, RESURRECTION, RAID, STRIFE, EARTH CRISIS, VEGAN REICH, MINDSET, STOP AND THINK, MOUTHPIECE, FLOORPUNCH, TEN YARD FIGHT, MENTAL, FUCKED UP, TRIAL, HAVE HEART, CLEAR, THE GEEKS, and many others. 384-page softcover book with 16-page color insert. 6.75” x 9.5” (170mm x 240mm); 2.75 lb. (1.2 kg)
