I'm really sick of these guys, the FSU (Friends Stay United). I'm not sure what they're like elsewhere, but at least in south jersey, they're the biggest douchebags i've ever met. They're assholes who just love hurting kids and woman, constantly going out of there way to hurt people. But because they're straight-edge they're somehow respectable people.

Just a few hours ago one of them went so incredibly far out of his way, just to hit this kid. The kid had to get five stitches in his lip, and the guy was kicked out briefly, only to return later. When he left he hugged the security guards and it was obvious they were friends. This isn't rare. It happens all the time around here, and often enough, the security guards are even FSU members themselves.

I'm not sure how close these guys are to the ones who started FSU, but either way this shit has to stop. And half of these "straight-edge" guys are most definitely not straight-edge at all. It's pathetic, and everyone around here is getting sick of them.

Indeed. The security guys thing just blows my mind though. When some asshole throws punches at girls or little kids and I see security just standing there...it just doesn't compute. Why are they there if not to stop that shit? What's the point? >.<

exactly. these FSU guys are the only people who usually cause problems at shows, so why have security guards if most the time something happens, they won't do anything?

They don't exist in Wisconsin. I hate people who get out of control at shows, though.

Seen this happen in Denver at a DDG show, FSU absolutely ganging up on 2 guys who were just getting into it. Started off by spin-kicking them then the guy turned round to be like "come on.. take it easy" then they allstarted laying into him, the bouncers came and laughed didn't stop it and then the two guys got chucked out. injustice they looked like they were loving the show.
Honestly big up this thread so much.

i dont think we have FSU in australia but we definatily have equally stupid hardcore "crews" (lol friends stay united... did they take the name from a kids tv show??)

yeah had a similar experience a couple of years ago. Was dancing (i dance "differently") and successfully dodging kick/punches/etc. (i turn dodging into cool moves haha) after awhile i become exhausted and moved to the side. While on the side i notice this one guy pointing at me to his friends, he then goes out of his way to fly kick me which i avoided the first time, second time i caught his foot mid air and dropped him.... then him and 12 other large men swarm me. lucky for me security was very good for a local show i escaped unharmed and they escorted me off the premise.

its terrible because Ive talked to some of my friends and they say they do it every show and pretty much anyone who isnt in their crew is not aloud to be in the pit. Id like to make it clear not like im whinging about occasionally coping a hit in the pit, no thats the risk, but when these crews get together just the gang up and bash kids at music shows i think thats totally different. Sadder still is later at other shows when they weren't with their crew some of the same people who swarmed me they said they enjoyed my dancing and we had good time... idiots

i dont go to hardcore show anymore, just not fun, which is a shame because it wasn't always that way
... now i ruin shows for hipsters because i dont stand still with my arms folded

HAHAHAHAHA these guys sound like a bunch of fucking nancys. 'friends stay united' hahaha what a jerkoff little club, funny how straight-edge people always end up being cunts. People who think 'the pit' is just an excuse for a fight wind me up like you wouldn't believe - if i was in a band and saw some of the stuff you guys have described in the crowd at my show i'd have them kicked out or just walk off stage...

I'm not surprised that Fuck Shit Up made it down to South Jersey, but when I was doing shows there growing up I never saw it.

Where? What bands?

The FBI's probe into them hurt them for awhile, can't believe they're going strong again.

Friends Stand United.

Who are you seeing that attracts this crowd?

There was an article years ago in Rolling Stone about FSU. Also, the leader is in jail.

False. There are loads of straight-edge people who don't go around beating people up, and loads of non-straight-edge people who do.
