a person who listens to any type of rock music. typically associated with goth
, and other subcultures. rockers have existed in many forms throughout the years and have often found themselves at odds with "rappers," as the musical interests clash. however, this is not true for all rockers, as some listen to rap as well as rock. currently, many rockers have been subjected to the accusation of being a "poser," because it is believed by many that a rocker only listens to one type of rock (ie. a punk might call a metalhead a poser). this is not true for all. rocker is general term, which can be confusing for some who try to understand the fine line between a rocker and a poser. Persecution of your own kind is a common affair with these people. You can find ten to twenty different rockers who have virtually nothing in common; conversely, you may find many rocker cliques in an area.
I am a rocker yet I find it unnecessary to hang with other rockers, and am insulted when people assume that I do.
