Grunger, by loose definition, is anyone a teen-aged to adult-aged person whose taste in music, clothing, styles, hobbies, and whose overall upbringing have caused them to dislike the townies of their high school. Grungers usually inhabit small, poor towns, and aren't always found in great numbers. Their hallmark is formed by such bands as Nirvana, Pearl Jam, Alice In Chains, Soundgarden, Mudhoney, and several modern "grunge" bands, such as Creed. Grungers mostly wear flannels, blue jeans (although not necessarily with tears or rips), and perhaps workboots. Popular hair trends are long hair, burred hair, sometimes bleached hair, but never any spikes.
Kurt Cobaine is the prime example of a Grunger.
