Ian MacKaye is an American hardcore musician and producer best known for the hardcore bands Minor Threat and Fugazi. He is credited with unintentionally sparking the straight edge movement, 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 independent, DIY philosophy by never signing to a major record label, and his bands never produced any merchandise. His critical view of the world around him endures to this day, helping to shape the landscape of American hardcore and the music industry as a whole.
