Groovy man!

A Discredited Trope these days and never played straight in modern times, Hippies were a subculture that popped up in the 1960s as a youth response to the increased social activism of the time. Known for their liberal use of drugs, loud(for the time) music, and for usually being extremely pacifistic.

Examples:

  • The Archie Comics gang went thru a period of this kind of thing(of course actual references to what was being reacted to were NOT allowed).

{{folder: Film}}
  • The early 1970s Godzilla films featured them quite a bit, especially Godzilla vs. Hedorah which was outright inspired by Woodstock and the 1969 youth riots in Japan around the same time.
