In the mid-1960s, the conflicts and riots between mods and rockers began to subside and mods turned to pop art and psychedelia.

Psychedelic rock is a rock music genre inspired by psychedelic culture. The psychedelic experience is a temporary, altered state of consciousness. It is often indicated by the consumption of LSD, mescaline or other drugs.

It is an alteration of normal perception that involves visual distortion, subjective loss of self-identity, sometimes mystical experiences. They are unpredictable and can range from a pleasant trip to a frightening journey. It is interpreted by many scientific theories and is also understood in religious and spiritual contexts.

In 1965 it was dubbed Swinging London, a period when London became synonymous with fashion, music and pop culture. Mod became widespread in the United States and other countries during this period.

Working-class street mod had splintered and transformed into a different subculture. For example, they became known as skinheads. In the 1970s, mod tried to emulate the look and style of the scooter era.
