Mods and rockers

Rockers are members of a subculture that started in the United Kingdom in the 1960s among motorcycle riding youths. Before that time, young motorcyclists had not been grouped together and labelled as such. Rockers are different from greasers, rockabillies, Teddy Boys, psychobillies and punks. However, rockers in the 1960s were commonly referred to as greasers or grease as an insult by mods and skinheads, and today the British use of the terms greasers and rockers are fairly interchangeable.
