Anyone who makes an attempt to emulate
another person/subculture/lifestyle; usually done to look cool, make friends, or to get attention. More often than not a wannabe is either insecure and wants to find their niche in society or they are just craving attention. These groups include "prep
", and "redneck
" ("goth" and "emo" being the most popular). It all starts out when the wannabe sees a certain group as cool and then they try to adopt the style/attitude/musical taste of that group. This normally results in ridicule and the disgust of the people they try to be like.
For starters, whoever posted entry #10 here. I think I know who you are and the person you are talking about... thats not a very nice thing to say about one of your fellow bandmates, now is it?
Seth (emo): Hey... you know that Jacob kid, right?
Henry (another emo): Yeah what about him?
Seth: Well.. he kept staring at me all week last week and today at school he had the same shoes as yours and the same haircut I have.. and he keeps trying to talk to me about how cool Hawthorne Heights and MCR are.
Henry: Dude... thats f*cked up. What a wannabe!
