Abstract
The present article deals with subcultures and amateur cultural activities of the Soviet youth. It attempts to substantiate the important role those socio-cultural youth innovations played in the USSR. Subcultural entities provided the patterns of cultural behavior, further developed into models of conduct for the younger generation of Soviet citizens. Specific examples illustrate that there are two lines of the subcultural movement: subcultures developed under the Western influence and those of domestic origin. It is also stated that despite the counteractions taken by the authorities (until the late 1980s), not only did subcultures not disappear, but they even expanded their influence on the Soviet youth.
