The hippie movement was a large musical and social subculture which was very popular from 1965 until about 1974. Hippies were visually recognizable by their long hair and anti-establishment attitude.[1] They supported love and peace and wore flowers in their hair as a symbol of their peace loving nature.

In the 1960s Zappa's Mothers Of Invention were the only rock band who were critical of the hippie movement.



"I was never a hippie. Always a freak, but never a hippie." (Frank Zappa (Mother In Lore)
