Australia's countercultural trend followed the one burgeoning in the US, and to a lesser extend the one in Great Britain. Political scandals in the country, such as the disappearance of Harold Holt , and the constitutional crisis , as well as Australia's involvement in Vietnam War , led to a disillusionment or disengagement with political figures and the government.
Large protests were held in the countries most populated cities such as Sydney and Melbourne , one prominent march was held in Sydney in on George Street. The photographer Roger Scott , who captured the protest in front of the Queen Victoria Building , remarked: "I knew I could make a point with my camera. It was exciting. The old conservative world was ending and a new Australia was beginning. The demonstration was almost silent. The atmosphere was electric. The protesters were committed to making their presence felt … It was clear they wanted to show the government that they were mighty unhappy".
Political upheaval made its way into art in the country: film, music and literature were shaped by the ongoing changes both within the country, the Southern Hemisphere and the rest of the world. One of Australia's most noted literary voices of the counter-culture movement was Frank Moorhouse , whose collection of short stories, Futility and Other Animals , was first published in Sydney Starting in the late s the counterculture movement spread from the US like a wildfire. Nevertheless, British youth readily identified with their American counterparts' desire to cast off the older generation's social mores.
The new music was a powerful weapon. In this case, it took the form of a wholesale revolt against the class system, which was now being questioned for the first time in the nation's history. Rock music, which had first been introduced from the US in the s, became a key instrument in the social uprisings of the young generation and Britain soon became a groundswell of musical talent thanks to groups like the Beatles , Rolling Stones , the Who , Pink Floyd , and more in coming years.

In the mids, the Glasnost policy permitted the production of less optimistic works. As a consequence, Russian cinema during the late s and the early s was action movies with explicit but not necessarily graphic scenes of ruthless violence and social dramas about drug abuse , prostitution and failing relationships.
Although Russian movies of the time would be rated "R" in the United States due to violence, the use of explicit language was much milder than in American cinema. In the late s, Russian counterculture became increasingly popular on the Internet. Several websites appeared that posted user-created short stories dealing with sex, drugs and violence. The following features are considered the most popular topics in such works:. A notable aspect of counterculture at the time was the influence of contra-cultural developments on Russian pop culture. In addition to traditional Russian styles of music, such as songs with jail-related lyrics, new music styles with explicit language were developed.

In March , at a seminar in Bangalore, he presented his countercultural perspectives Chapter 4 in S. Kappen, Tradition, modernity, counterculture: an Asian perspective , Visthar, Bangalore, Kappen envisages counterculture as a new culture that has to negate the two opposing cultural phenomena in Asian countries:.
