Now it's changed, there are a lot more "rebels" or what they like to think of themselves as "non-conformists" around now (not more than conformists mind, if there were the world would be in much more diarray than it is now). In fact, it's become to cliché to be a non-conformist now that it's more non-conformists to be conformist.
Haha, almost right on the last point. I think it's more a case of rather than non-conformist attitudes springing up, there are simply more conformist avenues available. There are still the non-conformists, who don't conform simply by doing, as opposed to thinking and moulding an image.

Listening to you, I get the music
Gazing at You, I get the heat
Following you, I climb the mountain
I get excitement at your feet

Right behind you, I see the millions
On you, I see the glory
From you, I get opinions
From you, I get the story

[From the Who's album, TOMMY]
