Ian MacKaye is an American hardcore musician and producer, best known for the hardcore bands Minor Threat and Fugazi. He is credited with unintentionally creating straight edge, a lifestyle promoting the abstinence from alcohol, drugs and sex, as a reaction against seeing his friendsâ€™ self destructive behaviors. He has stayed true to his DIY philosophy by never signing to a major record label, and his bands never produced any kind of merchandise. He has a simple, honest and independent attitude and is focused on the communal experience created through music.
