Greasers

Greasers

American greasers hang out in the park. The greaser subculture began in the 1950s with the advent of rock and roll and was comprised largely of rebellious, working-class youths obsessed with hot rods and music. The name greaser came from their greased-back hairstyle, which involved combing back hair with wax, tonics or pomade.
