A popular hairstyle, mostly worn by "scene" and "emo" kids. Hair is usually cut longer in the front with back of the head styled spiky/ blown-out , or spiky in the back with bangs straight across the forehead. Style starts in the mid-90s in the San Diego hardcore scene, by legendary scenester Justin Pearson who played in the 90s screamo bands Struggle, Swing Kids, Crimson Curse (later The Locust). An earlier term for this look was "Spock-Rock" or "Romulan Rock", which was in direct reference to the shotgun hairstyle that was common within this punk scene. Kids later added bleached tips and neon colored streaks as the style entered the "myspace" era.
