Rockers - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (2115 words)
Rockers was a term originally applied in a derogatory manner to British motorcycle riding youths in the 1960s, but was later taken by riders, and their pillions.
Rockers were almost entirely defined in opposition to their famous antitheses of the same time, the Italian motorscooter riding Mods, or Modernists.
Rockers are a sub-culture, even within motorcycling, that persists to this day and should not be confused with the similar looking Greasers, as in the American usage of the term, Rockabillies, Psychobillys or punks such as The Clash, The Ramones, etc., who have taken style elements from the Rockers.
