This article aims to show how youth subculture is mapped onto both ‘global’ and ‘glocal’ terms. The progression of the article is as follows: from a basic overview of youth subculture, black metal and current research, it then begins to slowly unpack; using familiar examples of globalization, in business and of culture. The article introduces how globalization and bricolage have intertwined to create ‘glocalization’, and how this new way to view global communities has pushed our current ideas of youth subculture towards evolution. The article hopes to encourage re-analysis in how we think of youth subculture; away from monolithic tribes towards more subtly nuanced groupings.
