Rockabilly Love

In reality rockabilly is way more than just music. Rockabilly is a lifestyle, it is it's own sub-culture. Rockabilly is like the combination of a 1950's greaser mixed with a old school punk rocker. With the huge pompadour, sweet creepers, black leather biker jacket, dark sunglasses and nice bowling shirt you can't go wrong. And trust me there is nothing sweeter than a rockabilly girl in a rockabilly dress (I like when they chew gum really loud). Fishnet stockings, flamed out rat rod tattoo and you are "good to go". - Rockabilly Style
