Le 'Straight Edge'


Explanation:
This is used to describe a certain type of band/ a style of music/attitude and there is no adequate translation in French. Just like Rock & Roll remains the same in French, Straight Edge will not be translated but if you need to give it a gender, it will be masculine.
