Minor Threat is not a straight-edge band. Ian has said himself that he never intended to start an entire scene; he was just expressing his personal choice. As far as I know, Ian is the only straight-edge member of the band.

According to their own record label (Dischord) they were but the band seemed to grow away from Ian's ideals. It is certainly true that he did'nt want to start a scene though.

Considering that some of the members in Minor Threat became a sleaze rock band called Junkyard in the late 80s I think the answer to that would be no.

I hate the label and the RULES it enforces.

To me, Minor Threat are about being in control of your life, Ian said himself it's not about a set of rules, which is definitely what it is about today.
