HxC talk

#1 Postby vegan_rossco » Mon Jan 14, 2013 12:42 pm

I did find another hardcore thread but didn't feel it was best to bump it
so I've made a new one. General chit chat about hardcore bands, being straight edge etc. Feel free to post links to upcoming shows and youtube vids of hxc bands

Although not straight edge, I don't consume alcohol or drugs or smoke either. Most of my best friends in the world are straigh edge, so I live the lifestyle and grew up loving the music, I just never wanted to attach the title to it.

On that note; maybe it's too soon to start dropping my favorite posi core SxE bands?

In a nutshell its no drugs, no alcohol, no smoking and no promiscious sex. Its often associated with hardcore music

I was always more into punk in general but still loved Black Flag, Circle Jerks, Minor Threat and a few others.

I haven't thought about SxE in forever. It was never a movement I real identified with and by the 90s it seemed to be populated with a bunch of assholes on par with skins.

Yeah there are different sects of it for sure. I have met some militant straight edge folk who spend their time at hardcore/punk shows starting fights with anyone drinking/smoking. I DEFINITELY do not identify with those people. There are also some amazing people who do a lot of good for the community in terms of drug/alcohol awareness.


I noticed the past few years more and more that it is a good outlet for kids who don't identify with the jocks/preps/nerds/etc. and dont really have a group to fall back on.

I am sure each scene is/was somewhat regional and probably more so at that time. I was going to university in Indiana in the 90s and the sXe (or was is SxE? I don't recall) community there got pretty militant (to the extent that coffee and tea were things they would berate you for) and was also really homophobic because gays and lesbians couldn't procreate. That said, one of the first vegans I ever met was straight edge and was a perfectly agreeable sort so clearly they weren't all off their cracker.

I love the late 80s stuff. Then again I also like the early 80s stuff and the 90s stuff. I never really liked the militant people because I'm a former addict myself.

Hey Rossco you like any of the old British stuff like Broken Bones, Exploited, abrasive wheels, or anti nowhere league? That was my high school playlist
