I know a few yeah. If you haven’t heard them already try Harms Way, xbishopx, Trapped Under Ice, Knocked Loose and True Love. All really good. I’m more a fan of the older 80s and 90s bands myself tho :+1:

What does straight edge band mean?

Its a subgenre of hardcore punk whose bands and fans typically follow an abstinent lifestyle. It started with Minor Threat in the 80s and other bands like Youth of Today, Gorilla Biscuits and Chain of Strength followed.

ok…I think I’ve heard of that.

Those were more ideological abstinence type ppl?

I would say so yeah.

Can’t say that I would have been into that earlier in my life :wink:

I was, but just because I liked the music. I certainly didn’t follow the lifestyle :disappointed:
