Subject of the paper: Musical Subculture

Requirement: This week, we will get into our next unit, which is musical subcultures. You will be reading about various subcultures of the music scene over the last few decades and then thinking about what value these subcultures bring to the people who associate themselves with these (musical) subcultures. For the next writing assignment, you will be investigating a musical subculture and explaining the values that the specific subculture provides for its followers.

So, there will be two sides to this:

  1. Describing the musical subculture – what is it? What is its history?
  2. A value or set of values that the subculture provides, to the (subculture) group and to the mainstream. This values side of the writing assignment is, in some ways, embedded in the subculture and not explicit. In other words, the articles you read may not say what values the subculture brings to its followers; it is up to you to brainstorm the potential values, choose a few and make the case that the musical subculture provides those values to its followers.


For this unit, we will be reading a few articles on musical subcultures and on values or benefits they could provide to the people who belong to the subculture and to the mainstream culture. You will want to pay close attention to the main points of each article and how they can connect to each other.

These are two article what I choose, in the essay you should use quote from these two article.

Article 1:
