Once a counterculture gets famous due to media intervention/attention, and new followers join enmass, is usually when a non LARP/legit counterculture is part of the culture.

Counterculture cannot exist for long in a large population. They usually get consumed by the muppets of the culture, or are kicked out or killed.

I agree

From my experience: Metallica lost its cool when Enter Sandman started playing in local dance halls and discos.Nirvana was never cool-manufactured,fake counterculture.Same with Goths and entire Industrial music genre.

Whatever is being sold to masses by industry is not counterculture.I think some Christian denominations can be considered counterculture since they are underground and very much going counter to mainstream,but that's my opinion.
