    Skinheadism is the ideology of the working-class Skinhead subculture which originated in Britain in the 1960s.

    The rise to prominence of skinheads came in two waves, with the first wave taking place in the late 1960s. The first skinheads were working class youths motivated by an expression of alternative values and working class pride, rejecting both the austerity and Conservatism of the 1950s-early 1960s and the more middle class or bourgeois hippie movement and peace and love ethos of the mid to late 1960s. Skinheads were instead drawn towards more working class outsider subcultures, incorporating elements of early working class mod fashion and Jamaican music and fashion, especially from Jamaican rude boys.

    The late 1970s and early 1980s saw a revival of the skinhead subculture, and increasing interaction between its adherents and the new punk movement. Oi!, a street-level working class offshoot of punk rock, became a vital component of skinhead culture while the Jamaican genres beloved by first generation skinheads were filtered through punk and new wave in a style known as 2 Tone. With these twin musical movements, the skinhead subculture diversified and contemporary skinhead fashions ranged from clean-cut 1960s mod and rude boy-influenced styles to less-strict punk-influenced styles.

    Its most well-known for its association with far-right politics however the first wave of skinheads were multiracial and movements such as SHARP were created to try and restore this by fighting against White Power skins. There is also a subculture of gay skinheads.

    The ideology can best be described as a broad working-class populism, typically countercultural with File:Anti-Authoritarianism.webp anti-authoritarian elements ( with exceptions of course), a love of Ska, punk and Oi! music and a tendency to get pissed up and get in fights.
