    Hippie, member of a youth movement of the late 1960s that was characterized by nonviolent anarchy, concern for the environment, and rejection of Western materialism. Also known as flower power, the hippie movement originated in San Francisco, California. The hippies formed a politically outspoken, antiwar, artistically prolific counterculture in North America and Europe. Their colorful psychedelic style was inspired by drugs such as the hallucinogen Lysergic Acid Diethylamid (LSD). This style emerged in fashion, graphic art, and music by bands such as Love, the Grateful Dead, Jefferson Airplane, and PinkFloyd.

    PUNK also known as PUNK ROCK aggressive form of rock music that coalesced into an international (though predominantly Anglo-American) movement in 1975-80. Often politicized and full of vital energy beneath a sarcastic, hostile facade, punk spread as an ideology and an aesthetic approach, becoming an archetype of teen rebellion and alienation.

    Black leather jackets adorned with shiny metal spikes and studs, combat boots, spike multi-colored mohawks (mohawk - a strip of hair left on the top of the head, running from front to back), slam dancing, and fast 3-chord rock and roll; all icons of the movement know as \"punk\". These are icons that defined the punk movement in the 70\'s and 80\'s, from the earliest forms to the later forms. These are what many have seen when they saw a \"punk\" walking down the street.\"Punk\" is a word that was originally a term for a prostitute in England, 17 century (you can find it in W. Shakespeare\'s play \"Measure for measure\"), then it was a jailhouse term for a submissive homosexual, and was slapped on as a label for a generation of miscreant mid-1960\'s U.S. Garage bands that were experimenting with post-Beatles British influence and early psychedelics . The term later expanded to include the rest of the \"miscreants\" that erupted in the mid 70\'s.The punk movement emerged in the mid 1970\'s. Most people disagree to just where the punk movement started. Some say that it developed in the US in NYC, others say it was an effort for the British youth to rebel against the current UK government. There are some who say that it was an art form, then there are some who believe it was a unorganized, combined effort between the US and the UK, that eventually developed into a sort of a \"punk race\". Despite the controversy about whether the punk movement started in the US, the UK, or some other place in the world, it is sure the entire world has felt its force in the emergence of subcultures and its direct influence on the music styles of today.

    If it is asked who the first punk band was, and the person answering held true to the belief that punk was born in the UK, many persons would answer that it was the Sex Pistols. SEX PISTOLS – rock group who created the British punk movement of the late 1970s and who, with the song \"God Save the Queen,\" became a symbol of the United Kingdom\'s social and political turmoil. By the summer of 1976 the Sex Pistols had attracted an avid fan base and successfully updated the energies of the 1960s mods for the malignant teenage mood of the \'70s. Heavily stylized in their image and music, media-savvy, and ambitious in their use of lyrics, the Sex Pistols became the leaders of a new teenage movement - called punk by the British press - in the autumn of 1976. Their first single, \"Anarchy in the U.K.,\" was both a call to arms and a state-of-the-nation address. When they used profanity on live television in December 1976, the group became a national sensation.

    I am an anti-ChristI am an anarchist,don\'t know what I wantbut I know how to get it.I wanna destroy the passers-by\'cos I wanna be anarchy...

    The Sex Pistols released their second single, \"God Save the Queen,\" in June 1977 to coincide with Queen Elizabeth II\'s Silver Jubilee (the 25th anniversary of her accession to the throne). Although banned by the British media, the single rose rapidly to number two on the charts. As \"public enemies number one,\" the Sex Pistols were subjected to physical violence and harassment.

    God save the Queenthe fascist regime,they made you a morona potential H-bomb.God save the Queenshe ain\'t no human being.There is no futurein England\'s dreamingDon\'t be told what you wantDon\'t be told what you need.There\'s no futurethere\'s no futurethere\'s no future for you God save the Queen\'cos tourists are moneyand our figureheadis not what she seemsOh God save historyGod save your mad paradeOh Lord God have mercyall crimes are paid.When there\'s no futurehow can there be sinwe\'re the flowersin the dustbinwe\'re the poisonin your human machinewe\'re the futureyou\'re future
