Straight Edge

Album: Minor Threat (1981)
  • I'm a person just like you
    But I've got better things to do
    Than sit around and fuck my head
    Hang out with the living dead
    Snort white shit up my nose
    Pass out at the shows
    I don't even think about speed
    That's something I just don't need

    I've got straight edge

    I'm a person just like you
    But I've got better things to do
    Than sit around and smoke dope
    Because i know that I can cope
    Laugh at the thought of eating ludes
    Laugh at the thought of sniffing glue
    Always gonna keep in touch
    Never want to use a crutch

  • Marcus from Columbia, Modefinitely a band that has opened my eyes to better and more meaningful music.
  • James from Newton, MaNot my lifestyle choice but a great song by one of the best punk bands of all time
  • Jeff from Austin, TxThis is the most hardcore 45 seconds ever recorded. Minor Threat is one of the most underrated bands ever.
  • Dev01d from Wollongong, AustraliaMinor Threat changed my life. I prefer 'In my eyes' over this song but it's all the same message. Can't believe no one has commented on this song before.
