  Subculture - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The subculture may be distinctive because of the age of its members, or by their race, ethnicity, class and/or gender, and the qualities that determine a subculture as distinct may be aesthetic, religious, political, sexual or a combination of these factors.
Subcultures are often defined via their opposition to the values of the larger culture to which they belong, although this definition is not universally agreed on by theorists.
Musical subcultures are particularly vulnerable to this process, and so what may be considered a subculture at one stage in its history (jazz, punk, hip-hop, rave culture) may represent mainstream taste within a short period of time.

 Dick Hebdige: THE FUNCTION OF SUBCULTURE
Subcultures form in communal and symbolic engagements with the larger system of late industrial culture; they're organized around, but not wholly determined by, age and class, and are expressed in the creation of styles.
Subcultures are, at least in part, representations of these representations, and elements taken from the 'picture' of working-class life (and of the social whole in general) are bound to find some echo in the signifying practices of the various subcultures.
It explains the subculture's ability to attract new members and to produce the requisite outraged responses from the parents, teachers and employers towards whom the moral panic was directed and from the 'moral entrepreneurs' - the local councillors, the pundits and MPs - who were responsible for conducting the 'crusade' against it.

 Subculture as a Neo-Liberal Conduct of Life in Leisure and Consumption
For Muggleton, subculture as a practice of everyday life, constructs the subcultural subject as an entrepreneurial individual, who is concerned less with social contradictions (in terms of class, gender, and ethnicity) and more with self-development, self-management, and self-realization, all of which center on the theme of freedom.
With respect to the postmodernists, the subcultural is conceptualized as the cultural; the modern as the postmodern; and the hero of subculture as an ordinary individual (rather than as a bourgeois or a working-class person).
Therefore, the historical development of the subcultural subject as a neo-liberal individual within the knowledge field of cultural studies is paralleled with the historical normalization of consumption as a neo-liberal imperative of capitalism.

 MARVIN WOLFGANG’S SUBCULTURE OF VIOLENCE THEORY
Basically, the subculture of violence theory holds that the overt use of violence is generally a reflection of basic values that stand apart from the dominant, the central, or the parent culture.
The southern subculture of violence theory suggests that individuals socialized in the South learn to approve of violence in a wide range of situations and to view violence as important in enhancing their honor or reputation (Ellison, 1991: 1224).
Therefore, conditions regarding a street subculture of violence should be tempered somewhat by the acknowledgment that a number of the described violent behaviors are the result of living under negative economic conditions (Baron, 1998:13-14).

 Cultural Studies & Hebdige’s Subculture: The Meaning of Style
According to him, subcultures form out of their replacement of one or several previous subcultures which disappear through a process which includes commodification by the establishment and media and eventual assimilation into the larger mainstream culture.
One of Hebdige’s major contributions was to demonstrate that, far from being indecipherable foreign entities, subcultures were actually very similar to the parent or dominant cultures of which they were part, by virtue of the fact subcultures were indeed a reworking of the larger culturesstyles and values (Hebdige, 76).
By reconfiguring existing styles and values, youth subcultures in 1970s Britain for example, resisted worsening socio-economic conditions by using these appropriated styles and values against their parents’ generation and the parent culture of which they were part.
