The "Prep" subculture is a cultural classification that emerged in the United States in the mid-20th century. It is associated with a particular style of dress, grooming, and social behavior that emphasizes traditional, conservative values and a preppy aesthetic. Prep culture values clean-cut, polished appearances and Ivy League-style clothing, such as polo shirts, chinos, and loafers. It is also associated with upscale, traditional pastimes such as sailing, tennis, and golf and is often associated with the upper-middle class or wealthy. Although the Prep subculture has declined in popularity in recent years, it still holds an important place in American cultural history and continues to influence fashion and lifestyle trends.

The "Goth" subculture is a subcultural movement that originated in the United Kingdom in the early 1980s. It is characterized by a dark, often romantic, and melancholy aesthetic, with a focus on music, fashion, and art that explores themes of death, decay, and the supernatural. The Goth subculture is often associated with a particular style of clothing, including dark and often Victorian-inspired clothing, heavy eyeliner, and pale makeup. It is also associated with a genre of music known as "Gothic rock," which is characterized by its dark and brooding themes, heavy basslines, and often ominous vocals. The Goth subculture has a strong DIY ethos and often embraces countercultural values, rejecting mainstream cultural norms in favor of a more individual and expressive style. Although the Goth subculture has declined in popularity in recent years, it remains an important part of popular culture and continues to inspire new generations of fans and artists.

"Jock culture" refers to a cultural stereotype that is associated with athletes and sports enthusiasts. It is characterized by a focus on physical fitness, competition, and winning, as well as an emphasis on traditionally masculine traits such as strength, courage, and aggressiveness. In this cultural context, being a "jock" is often seen as synonymous with being physically fit, athletic, and interested in sports and competition. Jock culture is often associated with high school and college-aged men and is often portrayed as being at odds with academic or intellectual pursuits. Despite this cultural stereotype, many athletes and sports enthusiasts also value education, creativity, and other forms of personal expression and intellectual pursuits.
