Counterculture is a sociological phenomenon that opposes the values and norms of the mainstream culture. The term is often used to describe the "youth culture" of the 1960's, and the Punk movement of the 1980s.

In a Capitalist society, the obvious markings of a counterculture (dress, hairstyles, music, etc) tend to be co-opted by the mainstream, while ignoring the ideology.
