Straight Edge has persisted as a drug-free, hardcore punk subculture for 25 years. Its political legacy remains ambiguous and is often misrepresented as a Puritan conservatism. However, as this study shows, its history is more complex. Since its origins in 1980s, the scene has been linked to radical thought and music. Tracing this history, the book includes contributions from famed Straight-Edge rockers like Ian MacKaye (Fugazi), Mark Anderson (Dance of Days) and Andy Hurley (Fall Out Boy) and numerous other activists dedicated to a sober, liberated world.

This study explores the modes of resistance in which members of the straight edge subculture engage, uncovering inconsistencies in their ideology and examining tensions these inconsistencies create along the way. Straight edge developed out of the punk scene as its proponents sought to come against what they perceived to be contradictions within punk ethos; where punks claim to be doing the opposite of what everyone else is doing as a form of rebellion against mainstream culture, straight edgers point to their drug and alcohol use, smoking, and engagement in promiscuous sex as mirroring mainstream, rather than opposing it. In an age replete with hedonistic activities as resistance against Christian conservative norms, the straight edge subculture has emerged in which its members actually perceive this hedonism as the new dominant mainstream ideology. They practice a pseudo-religious restraint to counteract it, engaging in a non-religious asceticism as a means to make their statement. Although this choice may not seem disruptive, in reality it engages in a dramatic destabilizing of norms. However, through a close examination of straight edge texts, including documentaries, lyrics, and performances, it becomes evident that this resistance is riddled with tensions between ethos and action. In an effort to lead what they have termed a "toxin-free" lifestyle in order to ostensibly further distance themselves from the hegemony, and in making a break from their punk predecessors, straight edgers have inadvertently produced their own contradictions. I argue that the most debilitating of these contradictions to the intended straight edge resistance is its members' repeated proclamations of leading a peaceful movement while practicing violence. The multiple manifestations of this violence are explored as well as the effects this violence has had on the subculture's members' ability to maintain congruency between ideology and action. The findings of this study serve to illuminate the difficulties involved in the construction and maintenance of a stable ethos within resistant youth subcultures, as well as to highlight the recursive nature of youth rebellion in America, where the preceding rebellion serves as a basis to define the next rebellion, and the pattern of rebelling against rebellion pushes on.

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, Projec

Straight edge--hardcore punk's drug-free offshoot--has thrived as a subculture since the early 1980s. Its influence has reached far beyond musical genres and subcultural divides. Today it is more diverse and richly complex than ever, and in the past decade alcohol and drug use have become a much-discussed issue in radical politics, not least due to the hard work, dedication, and commitment to social and environmental justice found among straight-edge activists. X: Straight Edge and Radical Sobriety is Gabriel Kuhn's highly anticipated follow-up to his critically acclaimed Sober Living for the Revolution. Extensively illustrated and combining original interviews and essays with manifestos and reprints from zines and pamphlets, X is a vital portrait of the wide spectrum of people who define straight edge culture today. In the sprawling scope of this book, the notion of straight edge as a bastion of white, middle-class, cis males is confronted and challenged. X takes a piercing look at religion, identity, feminism, aesthetics, harm reduction, and much more. It is both a call to action and an elaborate redefinition of straight edge and radical sobriety.
