Straight edge is a subculture within a subculture, being born out of the punk movement. Subcultures define themselves by staying away from the 'mainstream' or what is considered to be prevalent in society at the time. With straight edge young people saw themselves as oppositional to the 'mainstream' of punk by not drinking, doing drugs or smoking which pushed them closer to the fringes in order to avoid being pastiche.
