A culture that has formed in mainstreem culture and then take it under ground.
The easiest subculture to use as an example is the goth scene. It started from the punk movment and then went underground when punk and goth music became "un-popular" (ie no longer in the pop charts) where it flourished. The goth scene now has its own fashion, sociological and poltical veiws, religions (Wicca, Satanism, agnostisism and even budism have all been accepted by the goth scene) as well as its own music scene.
Subculture's should be treated as any other cultures, with an open mind.
Goth/Industrial, Hip Hop (Until recently when it became mainstreem and was pillaged by the Chavs), Punk and Muslim/Sikh/Jewish/Hindu cultures when taken to the west become sub-culture.
