a person who listens to any type of rock music. typically associated with goth, punk, 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.

Before i get started, Rocker is not a label, its a just... a way of life!
The term Rocker applies to any person who genuinely likes listening to any type of rock music over other types of music, but not ruling out other music styles. There are many types of of Rockers such as Goths, Emos, Indies, Moshers, Punks, Metalheads and Hippies to name a few, it is not uncommon for the different types to argue amongst each other yet there can be also great friendships between different types. A person who has no affiliation must not be confused and take in that a certian group of rockers are infact posers or wanabees for this is an insult or term to call one fake or shallow and not being themselvs. Most Rockers are generally at odds with groups such as Chavs, Jocks and scallies because those groups are generally dickheads, wankers and/or scumbags!!!
Here are a few sterotypical pastimes of each type of Rocker (which are not true) -

Goths - Eating disorder, self harming, making sacrifices to Satan, Attention seeking

Emos - Faking depression, crying over nothing, trying to fit on those tight black jeans without ripping a hole in the croch area... and failing!

Indies - Critising other peoples tastes in anyting, worring about labels, being a snob

Metalheads - Playing Ozzy Osbourne and Children of Bodom at full volume out of a 140wt guitar amp at 1am, being the most egoistacal bastards ever, have atleast 8 plectrums with them at all times

in 50s and 60s britain two youth groups emerged the rockers and the mods; the rockers liked american movie culture and drove round on motorbikes wearing leather jackets and boots, my grandfather was a rocker and he went down to Brighton many times to give the mods a good kicking. This is nowadays confused sometimes with the american version that are goths the 50s british rockers were cool unlike those black-clad skunks.
50s man: look at those rockers kicking in the mods.

A person who rocks along to rock music obviously! Preps refer to these people as freaks and people who are 'weirdos and different' ,however this is not true. Most are recognised by black tops, bracelets-lots!, tight jeans and sweat bands. Most hate rapppers and RnBers, although it is just up to the person themselves. They are not goths, and people can get somewhat insulted when they are mistaken for one.
Rock On !!!!!!!!!!

Prep: You are, like, soo weird!
Rocker: Well at least I'm not a fake prep!
Prep: OMG evrybody, I will not let some goth speak to me like this! Get lost,you freako, and get back to your wrist slitting.
