Youth of Today was a band that had deep roots not only in the NYHC scenes but the Straight Edge scene back in the early and late 80s. The band did in this time put out 4 total full length albums with ""Can’t Close My Eyes"" being the first full length release back in 1985.
""Can’t Close My Eyes"" has always been the album I think of when I think of not only Straight Edge but that New York hardcore sound you always hear people talking about. Thankfully this album is still re-released every few years and can be found in many record shops that carry old school albums.
Band members from Youth of Today have moved on to other projects through out the years with Gorilla Biscuit and Limp Bizkit being two of the better known groups.
The first version of this album was reelased in 1985 on Positve Force Records.
