This is someone associated with the Industrial dance music scene. Contrary to the original Industrial culture (sometimes referred to as “Industrialists”), which was not a coherent youth culture with a discernible fashion style, the Rivethead scene and its dress code emerged in the late 1980s, but flourished in the mid 1990s, on the basis of Electro Industrial, Electronic Body Music, and Industrial Rock, most of the associated dress style has militaristic styles, with hints of Punk aesthetics and Fetish Wear.

Some of the Rivethead scene would take on a post-apocalyptic, dystopian influence, often inspired by movies, Mad Max (1979), Escape from New York (1981), Gunhed (1989), Death Machine (1994) or Strange Days (1995).

Several movies, such as Hardware (1990), Strange Days and Johnny Mnemonic (1995), contain songs by Ministry, KMFDM, Diatribe, Stabbing Westward and other bands who have some association with the Rivethead culture. Other influences would include sci-fi archetypes, such as Lupus Yonderboy of the Panther Moderns and Razorgirl from the Cyberpunk literature (characters from the Sprawl trilogy by William Gibson).
