NATIONAL EDGE DAY
National Edge Day is observed annually on October 17.
This day was founded by people who associate themselves with The Straight Edge movement. Straight Edge is a subculture and subgenre of hardcore punk whose adherents refrain from using alcohol, tobacco, and other recreational drugs. The movement adopted the term from the song “Straight Edge” by the 1980s hardcore punk band, Minor Threat.
