GREASERS
Greasers were mostly known for their, ethnic youth subculture that originated in the 1950s among young northeastern and southern United States street gangs. The style and uniqueness then became popular among other types of people, as an expression of rebellion.
In the 1950s and early 1960s, these youths were known as "hoods". The name "greaser" came from their greased-back hairstyle, which involved combing back hair with wax, gel, creams, tonics or pomade. The term "greaser" reappeared in later decades as part of a revival of 1950s popular culture. One of the first events of this revival was a 1971 American 7 Up television commercial that featured a 1950s greaser saying "Hey remember me? I'm the teen angel." The music act "Sha Na Na" also played a major role in the revival.
