Background Crucial Youth formed in 1987 to clean up the scene. I mean it's no good complaining about the ills of the world until you can look in the mirror and be proud of who you are. With this in mind four young men from New Jersey set out on a crusade. They are the most positive band in the world so beware. They preach the evils of drinking coffee, masturbating, doing drugs and alcohol while setting an example by rewinding video tapes, putting litter in its place and eating from the four food groups. Many so called straight edge bands have been brought to task for cursing.
