I've been seeing variants of this symbol everywhere lately and wondered about missing a trend. What was I missing? Luckily sometimes twitter is better than google.
@5chw4r7z carryover from the straight-edge hardcore scene of the 90s? Are the 90s cool again?— AJZ513 (@ajz513) December 28, 2012
How did I miss all this in the 90s anyhow?
I'm not a good student of culture. Not good at all.
Straight edge is a subculture and subgenre of hardcore punk whose adherents refrain from using alcohol, tobacco, and other recreational drugs.
Yeah, bet those dudes were a hoot. Second thought they probably were. I can only imagine pent up late teen angst with no drug related outlet. An unrelenting testosterone fury 24/7.
Seems like coffee shops/roasters and smaller bike manufacturers are digging the straight edge symbol for its edginess.
