 Any mods or rockers here on TheBeatlesBible? (I'm a mod myself) I started off as a "Mocker,"  or rather, an accidental mod blending some rocker into my style. Now, I'm a full-on mod! Well, a mod female who likes the male mod style so much she decided to ditch clothing genders, anyway... I may have only 1 suit jacket in my closet that actually fits, but hey, we've got to start somewhere. Any other mods? Rockers?

I like rock, and i rock out. Does that make me a rocker?

I'd say I'm a mocker, although I'm leaning more towards mod. I've been parting my moptop in a Steve Marriott/Paul Weller style quite a lot recently, plus I've grown to like the R'N'B, soul and ska genres (my dad plays the latter a lot.) as well as the usual suspect bands like The Who, Small Faces and The Jam, but I'm surprisingly not too keen on Oasis.

john-lennon-salute_gif I approve. I, too, am technically female but prefer to emulate the fashions of dudes in the 60s and 70s.

As for myself, I'm probably a Mocker because I like rocking out but I also wear slightly mod-influenced clothing too.

To be fair, I listen to a lot of rock myself. Although it's not the music that makes the mod or rocker. I still consider myself a mod, I've actually read somewhere that the term "rocker" originally had something to do with the bikes themselves.

Mods and Rockers were easily identifiable by their distinctive clothing styles: the Mods wore Fred Perry and Ben Sherman designer suits, covered by a Parka jacket; while the Rockers wore leather biker jackets and jeans. Mods also rode European scooters like Lambrettas and Vespas and listened to a mix of Motown, ska and bands such as The Who. The Rockers favoured motorbikes and listened to American rock and roll such as Eddie Cochrane and Elvis.

http://www.bl.uk/learning/time.....05730.html

The Rockers were associated with motorcycles, and in particular with the larger, heavy and powerful Triumph motorcycles of the late 1950s. They favored black leather, much like American motorcycle gang members of the era. Their musical tastes ran to white American rock and rollers such as Elvis Presley, Gene Vincent, and Eddie Cochran. By contrast, the Mods made a conscious attempt to appear new (hence, “Mod,” or modern) by favoring Italian motor scooters and wearing suits. Musically, Mods favored modern jazz, Jamaican music, and African American R&B. In the early 1960s, the lines between Mods and Rockers were clearly drawn: the Mods thought of themselves as more sophisticated, more stylish, and more in touch with the times than the Rockers were. The Rockers, however, viewed the Mods as effeminate snobs.

Mods and Rockers, two rival British youth gangs, on Easter weekend 1964, a long Bank Holiday, met up in various resort locations in England, and violence broke out. The riots on Brighton beach and elsewhere attracted the attention of the press in the United Kingdom and abroad. There seems to be little evidence that there was widespread documented physical animosity between the two groups before the riots that erupted in 1964. However, the Mods and the Rockers represented two very different approaches taken by disenfranchised British youth.

My new haircut is a very Mod-y moptop. a-hard-days-night-john-6 Two days ago it was much more of a Rocker intermediate post-moptop shag, as exemplified here:
JohnnyShag


(except without the sideboards, and my hair is thicker and less frizzy than John's)

I'm now awaiting on it all to grow out a bit so it'll be more Rocker-y again. Such is the way with hair: it always looks best after it's been growing out for a month or so. a-hard-days-night-paul-7

I don't like suits much, but I don't much like leather either. Is there a group for someone who wears an excessive amount of denim?

Its a classic American hoodlum look. In the famous novel The Outsiders, the two groups are Greasers and Socs, the Greasers wearing denim jeans and jackets with slicked back hair.

I mostly wear bright shirts, bell bottoms (or as my friend calls them "flappy jeans"), peace signs, flowery stuff, and 60s band shirts. 

 

I think I'm just a hippie and should leave.

I wear that too (well, not the peace signs but everything else)... so I guess I fall between mod and hippie. Mippie? Hod? Doesn't work as well as Mocker... a-hard-days-night-paul-7
