Every generation has its nicknames. In the 1950' s, a group of writers came to be known as `The Beats.' Jack Kerouac, Allen Ginsberg, William Burroughs, and others railed angrily against the complacency of post-World War II America. Their writing, poetry and Bohemian lifestyle changed popular culture; leading the way for the rebellious '60s and helping to set the stage for the hip-hop ' 90s.
