Were greaser gangs around in the 1940's?

You know? Those trouble-making teenage boys wearing leather jackets and blue jeans who carried switchblades and had pompadour hairstyles?


They are more associated with the 1950s and the birth of rock'n'roll


Yeah. They had zoot suit gangs in the forties. The greasers, and leather jackets, were more Fifties.

Gasoline and food rationing,
Scrap drives & recycling
People at home not sure if relatives were dead or alive
Men at war in the middle of nowhere or going through Europe
Misinformation from both sides, confusion, terror.
But they had better music than afterwards.

After the war:

Consumerism
Entertainment
Shell-shock
Luxury
Disposable lifestyle beginning
Stan Kenton's jazz music, which kind of sucks.
