film was pretty much the brain-child of Pete Townsend, because The
Who came out of the 60's Mod scene in England. It is loosely based
on actual events where British kids would go to places like Brighton Beach
(not the one near Coney, obviously) to riot and rumble and create havoc!
Either you were a clean-cut, working-class, speed-popping Mod, or
you were a Rocker, witch was the English version of the American Greaser.
Great quote from Ringo Starr!4nik8 wrote: are you a "Mod" or a "Rocker"?
I'm a mocker!
