More than 30 years of rock music.
♫The British Teddy Boy (also known as Ted) subculture is typified by young men wearing clothes partly inspired by the styles worn by dandies in the Edwardian period. The subculture started in London in the 1950s, and rapidly spread across the UK, soon becoming strongly associated with American rock and roll.
♫Teddy Boys were the first youth group in England to differentiate themselves as teenagers, helping create an youth market. The US film Blackboard Jungle marked a watershed in the United Kingdom. When shown in Elephant and Castle, south London in 1956, the teenage Teddy boy audience began to riot, tearing up seats and dancing in the cinema's aisles. After that, riots took place around the country wherever the film was shown.
The mod subculture was called a "fashion-obsessed and hedonistic cult of the hyper-cool" young adults who lived in metropolitan London or the new towns of the south. Significant elements of the mod subculture include fashion , music, including African American soul, Jamaican ska, British beat music, and R&B, and motor scooters.
Hippie fashions and values had a major effect on culture, influencing popular music, television, film, literature, and the arts. In the 60s a new group emerged whose ideas were based on the philosophy of peace and love. The Hippies wore coloured necklaces, sandals and jeans, they had long hair and were fighting against materialism and war . They often hand –painted their cars, their motto being “Flower Power”.
Punk appeared in the late 70s promoting the idea of anarchy and destruction. Punks seek to outrage others with the highly theatrical use of clothing, hairstyles, cosmetics, tattoos, jewellery and body modification.
The punk subculture is centred around listening to recordings or live concerts of a loud, aggressive genre of rock music called punk rock.
The subculture emerged in the late 90s and is associated with independent music, a varied non-mainstream fashion sensibility, and alternative lifestyles. Hipsters try to stand out by bringing back the old, by making nerdy look cool and to diverge from the mainstream. Everything about them is constructed to give off the vibe that they just don't care.
