  1. 1. Ravers and Rude boys<br />By Viranga & Robin<br />
  2. 2. Acid house raver.<br />A raver today<br />
  3. 3. Ravers<br />Ravers derived from the 50’s mod subculture, where it describes the madness and frenzy of a feeling and the desire for it to never end. <br />Buddy Holly’s 1958 hit called “rave on” is an example of the earliest reference to rave culture in the 50’s. <br />In the late 80’s ravers was much more associated with electronic music, although it was a commonly used term for mid 60’s garage rock and psychedelic bands. <br />The rave parties of 88-89 were compared to football matches as they provided a setting for working-class unification due to a union in decline and few jobs available, also many ravers were die-hard football fans. <br />
  4. 4. Rude boys/ bling hip hoppers <br />Derived from the poorer parts of new york where poverty of African American young men were ignored.<br />Rap was a product from this culture, it was about telling the tales, like soul/jazz in the 1800’s of these young men. <br />Society did not give them an opportunity and they were against a rich mainstream society.<br />Rude boys initially come from Jamaica in the 50’s where rude boy was referred to someone who was a trouble maker. <br />In contemporary culture, a rude boy is someone who like rap music and dress/ act like a gangster etc. <br />
  5. 5. Bling Hip-hoppers<br />Bling hip hoppers refer to young men who came from poor backgrounds, who try to overcome this by showing off what they have achieved. E.g. many rappers are keen to show off their bling and women so that those who doubted them in the past can see how far and more successful they are. <br />
  6. 6. Ravers Social class background<br />Usually working class young individuals.<br />They were usually football enthusiasts.<br />They followed magazines informing them of how to be a raver. Including mainstream newspapers such the NME, Melody maker and the Record Mirror.<br />Ravers want to have fun and rebel against institutions such as the government who have attempted to crack down on their house parties. <br />
  7. 7. Values and Beliefs of Ravers <br />They believed that enjoying the high of a party was important. <br />They liked to have fun and then return to their everyday ‘normal’ life of school, college, work etc. <br />Believed in no boundaries to having fun and partying<br />By the late 80’s to the 90’s they were constantly targeted by the mainstream media due to the fact that politicians and other members didn’t like them. They were associated with drugs therefore a lot of institutions were against the rave culture. <br />
