Sub Culture

How does this come about? Allow me to elaborate. Through out the history of our culture there have been tons of movements,like punk, straight edge, more recently hipster; but somehow they still survive in a sense. In even small towns you still see goths, hipsters, punk, rarely straight edge anymore, but you get the picture. Anyway, how does this exactly happen, does one wake up some morning and deiced that wearing plaid with large plastic glasses and vans and skinny jeans would be something cool to wear while listen to horrible indie bands that aren’t very famous for a reason (I’m all for indie bands, but some do just suck, that can be said of any genre though). I’ve never ‘conformed’ to a style, musical preference or philosophy, so how does that come about? I’ve even seen where people do it on there own but why? When emo was going through my school like the plague this dude walks in with slick back hair and a leather jacket like he just came from the eighties; this can be seen as sudden and unusual, so why do people do it, and how does that happen?
