“originally a British youth subculture that evolved out of the teddy boys in the 1960s; wore black leather jackets and jeans and boots; had greased hair and rode motorcycles and listened to rock’n’roll; were largely unskilled manual labourers”

The “Rocker” subculture started growing in the late 1950’s. They considered the Teddy boys as their “ancestors”.

Being a rocker was a lifestyle and even if they took inspiration from the Teddy boys these rockers had a more relaxed approach to fashion.

Rockers bought motorcycles and modified  them to look like racing bikes. These motorcycles were not only a way of moving around, but they were used to intimidate like the use of the skull and cross on their gear.
