The book initially addresses the continued academic validity of the term subculture in light of recent moves to realign cultural studies to an understanding of youth cultural engagement as fragmented and increasingly transient. Through a combination of academic analysis and engagement in the field, it is argued that different aspects of subcultural theory, from seemingly competing paradigms, can help understand the varied behaviours, attitudes and values of young people engaged with this music.
