Yet another classification that manages to simultaneously offend, insult, and start a fight.

1) Bloke with Harley Davidson who just happens to wear leather, denim and chunky boots. Probably has long hair and a Hulk Hogan style long hair-in-bandana-tasche combo, as the groomed look isn't really practical when biking. This archaic definition of the word 'greebo' is rapidly becoming antiquated and disused. Many second-generation greebos are not aware of the derivative status of the term.

2) Very shortlived musical subculture involving undercut hair and grubby clothes, influencing a couple of contemporary bands and thousands of grungy teenagers everywhere. Coined the term moshers.

3) 'Alternative' teenagers who like baggy jeans and Nine Inch Nails. Generally aged between 10 and 16, this subculture share an affinity with goths in that they feel the need to be recognised as individuals, without realising that this aim is destroyed by the act of categorising oneself as a 'greebo'. Greebos enjoy the company of other greebos, goths and punks, and are most likely to be found skinning up outside Korn concerts or drinking vodka under bridges.

Unlike a chav, the typical greebo can form complex sentences and can understand the benefits of basic education. Unfortunately, this perception is marred by a compulsive desire to get pissed and/or stoned.
Similarly to goths, greebos must have at least one body piercing. This is most commonly the eyebrow or the ear, as they look good but do not hurt. More adventurous greebos may go with the septum or the bridge, but group opinion leaves the more adventurous modification to punk subculture.

Greebo nutrition is limited to fast food, alcohol and nicotine. Unlike a chav or a goth, a greebo will not tend to become emaciated. This is partly due to the hunger pangs caused by smoking dope, and the fact that Pot Noodles are cheaper than chips.

4) A one eyed cat of foul temperament belonging to Nanny Ogg, a character in the popular Discworld Series of novels by Terry Pratchett.

Fun facts: Shout, 'Police!' and a greebo can run faster than Kelly Holmes on crack.

Ah, Greebos. The net gloved wearing, stripy black and purple tights, three quater length trousers and usually a khaki/black/dark blue top with a.) a band name on (i.e Iron Maiden, Blink 182, Nirvana, System of a down, funeral for a friend, My Chemicval Romance ect) or b.) a brand name (i.e, Vans, converse, Dickies, Atticus, ect.) or C.)Some kind of skull, arrow through heart, offensive writing ect.
Ovbiously, they don't accosiate with Townies, Chavs, Trendies or boffs. They usually stick to their Greebo, Grundgie, gothic freinds who they hsng round with in a big group, generaklly sitting on a feild in a big circle. Often they have thier CD player/MP3/ I-POD on full blast shouting out some heavy, guitar cladded music about people who are mad. These people are the ones who DON'T want to fit in with other Groups at school because they think Chavs, Townies, Trendies are gay.
"Dude. I gfot the new my chemical romance CD yesterday. Its great." - Greebo.

A greebo is a person who does not "fit" into the crowd. Thus they (by default) become a greebo, however they can never admit this. Also the person may of had something happen to them, and therefore feel the world owes them. I do not hate greebos, a a lot of friends are greebos, and no i am not a townie/chav/pikey, although a lot of my fiends are them to. The concept sucks to, become a greebo to be "different", but you all look a like, and there are so many of you. Though you will claim there are more townies, but that is because you class anyone who is not one of you a townie other then business men/woman. So people who dont class themselves as anything are townies to you.
Some greebos are cool

But most need to get over themselves and realise not everyone has a grudge against them!

Arrogant bastards who think they're so individual because they all wear the same baggy jeans, skirts, stripy socks combos. You're no different lovies just a different type of uniform. Most of them sniff at anything thats not guitar based rock you know there's nothing wrong with a bit of hip hop, dance, pop. Of course they sometimes like pop or dance music ironically. They take pleasure in being "Wacky" and as I think is perfectly demonstrated in some of these definitions. Just as narrowminded as those townies/ trendies they claim to hate. Nothing wrong with wearing trousers that fit...
Most likely to be heard saying "Free hugs for all"

or

"Aren't I weird"
