The Stray Cats style was based upon the sounds of Sun Records artists from the 1950s, and were heavily influenced by Eddie Cochrane, Carl Perkins, and Gene Vincent to name a few. The band moved to the UK. where they spearheaded the rockabilly revival, by blending the 1950s sound with modern punk musical elements. In terms of visual style the Stray Cats also wore 1950 rockabilly style clothes such as wearing drape jackets, brothel creepers,and western shirts with punk clothes such as tight black zipper trousers and modern versions of 1950s hair styles.
