20 Straight-Edge Celebrities Who Embrace The Spirit A Healthy Punk Lifestyle

Straight edge is a subculture, a lifestyle, a movement, and an identity for some. The word comes from a Minor Threat song (Straight Edge) from the early 1980s, which condemned the punk community’s self-indulgent and nihilistic attitudes of the time. It, along with a few other songs with similar ideas, served as the foundation for what became known as “straight edge.”

The straight edge culture evolved swiftly in the United States, peaked in the late 1980s, and quickly moved to Canada and other cities across the world. While specific interpretations differ among locations, settings, and individuals, some components of it have stayed consistent over time and around the world.

The straight-edge lifestyle is perfect for those who are struggling with addiction or simply want a better lifestyle for self-improvement.
