SOARES, Alexandre Bárbara. "To being in this scene, you should be resistant to the common world": youth, subcultures and cultural resistance in Rio de Janeiro. Rev. Epos [online]. 2016, vol.7, n.2, pp. 123-146. ISSN 2178-700X.

The relationship between youth and culture has taken great relevance and been very present in the field of human sciences in recent decades. The crisis of political representation at the global level, seems to have increasingly turned the field of culture in an area where young people forge ways of being in the public space, giving visibility to different ways of perceiving society and its problems. Within this vast cultural territory, some movements and currents have started, in recent decades, adding young people on practices and discourses that seek not only to counter a set of social values, but also to attack, refuse them and confront said values. Subcultures, especially those originated from the punk culture in the late seventies, appeared as a form of expression of global working class and exploited youths, but were quickly co-opted and diluted by the industry of cultural consumption. However, these subcultures remain alive and active in different ways and with different arrangements, in most Brazilian cities. This article stems from a question: in the modern world of multiple information and communication tools, music and cultural movements that are organized around it can be devices of values, behavior and collective action production and intervention in society, of politic debate? The purpose of this research is to think about the different dimensions of youth experience in Rio de Janeiro within the punk subculture and its sub-branches. By evaluating ten semi-structured interviews, we intend to analyze this experience through different scenarios by which young people pass within subcultures: it's written production in the form of fanzines, it's music, it's events and rituals and their perceptions on this journey.
