Oxfam is short for the company Oxfam International. The company was founded in 1995 and is a charity organisation. It aims to reduce poverty, suffering, and injustice.

Oxfam has a large number of charity shops all around the world, where clothes and other items are sold at a cheap price in order to keep the organisation running.

Many people regard 'Oxfam' as cheap and dirty, because the clothes and items for sale in Oxfam were donated and were seen as worthless before they were sold. The person wearing second-hand clothes purchased from Oxfam may be seen a scrubber, however the person wearing the clothes will feel they have bought cool, good quality clothes for a cheap price.
Boy #1: Yo' scrubber and dirty cuz yo' shop at Oxfam.
Boy #2: Yes, the clothes were cheap and purchased from Oxfam but I am proud that this money has gone to a worthy charity and that I haven't paid through the nose for them.

Unless the winner of each heat is judged on points, it is really a competition of how many friends each band brings on the night. It doesn't matter if your band is any good or not, it all depends on how many votes you get at the end of the night. Which, of course, depends on how many friends you bring to the gig.
Band #1: We have 100 friends and they are all coming to the battle of the bands gig.
Band #2: Well we have 102 friends, so we will win!
