There’s a misconception that to live a Straight Edge lifestyle, you’ve got to be into hardcore punk music. Although that’s where the roots of Straight Edge come from, there’s no “rule book” that says that’s what everyone should listen to – and that’s the way it should be!
So what music are you into?
Spill ya beans!

– Alternative Rock: PRIMUS, KILLING JOKE, FAITH NO MORE, THE SOUNDS
– 80’s pop: SANDRA, ULTRAVOX, CLASSIX NOUVEAUX, TALK TALK, KAJAGOOGOO, SPANDAU BALLET, DURAN DURAN, DEVO, KOOL & THE GANG, OMD, KOMBI, PAPA DANCE, WISH KEY…

I love all kinds of hardcore, especially the modern, metal-influenced “tough guy”-hardcore. My musical journey led me from 90’s West Coast-Hip Hop and G-Funk over Trance and all kinds of Metal to hardcore, and I think I found “my” music. To me, nothing compares to the energy of a HC show, the music is honest, sraightforward and aggressive, exactly what I like.
Some of my favourite bands from the Tough Guy-Genre include First Blood, Lionheart and Hatebreed. I also like Beatdown hardcore with bands such as Shattered Realm, Nasty and Vow Of Hatred or Youth crew-bands such as Focused X Minds, Mindset or Down To Nothing and of course old-school classics such as Agnostic Front or Sick Of It All. I’m not that much into Metalcore since I dislike the melodic aspects of it, which in my eyes ruin the aggression but just recently I’ve been really getting into The Ghost Inside.
I’m also a strong proponent of Violent Dancing, only at the appropriate shows, though. While I think it’s an inherent and important part of modern hardcore shows, I would never start doing it at concerts where I know people dislike it, and a sense of responsibility should be mandatory.
For anyone interested in finding some new bands, I’ll link my last.fm-profile: http://www.lastfm.de/user/dre_9310/05/2013 at 8:25 am #2759

It’s kind of weird, but the music that I’m into includes old 70’s and early 80’s stoner dub, like King Tubby, Augustus Pablo, Mikey Dread etc. I’m also a big fan of the psychadelic, swirly, wall of guitar sounds of the 90’s Shoegazing era. Bands like My Bloody Valentine, Swervedriver and Sonic Youth. Who needs drugs when you can expand your mind with this stuff?
PS: Oh, and Dinasour JR, Deftones, Sevendust and loads of early Ska!!!12/05/2013 at 9:21 am #2790

Thanks Dredge, because I’m not really into much hardcore or punk.
I do love me some Coheed and Cambria though, as well as Modest Mouse, The Strokes, Kings of Leon, and the Decemberists.
Props to PxZ because 80’s pop is rad, and to Andre Horn for your mature view on Violent Dancing (man that’s annoying when it’s not wanted).13/05/2013 at 8:58 am #2796

Because of this it is also one of the most expensive so getting a
rebate helps keep the cost down. There’s a lot of advantages to switching to an electric toothbrush, many of which have actually been approved by the dental association. However, there are certain important constraints that should be kept in mind before making a choice.13/06/2013 at 11:08 am #2924
