Hippies turned San Francisco into their particular paradise in 1967. Scott Mckenzie described the kindness of the "summer of love" and invited coming into the city wearing some flowers in the hair. Thousands of youngs celebrated the born of the new movement at Haight-Ashbury district or at the Golden Gate park, committed to rebellion against the american way of life that was established after the end of the Second World War. While, tens of illegal laboratories were cooking LSD as if the world was going to end the next day and a whole generation of young people was fighting and dying thousands of miles far from the West, in a place called Vietnam. This was the breeding ground for the music genre that nowadays we know as "acid rock".
