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.

see: grunger, metal, punk, goth, skateboarder, alternative

Generic term to classify and insult anyone who either enjoy's 'extreme sports', rock music, metal music, alternative music, goth music, industrial music etc...

Stereotypical 'Greebo' would listen to Nu-Metal and wear loose fitting jeans.

Term is generally used by a Towny as an insult. Stereotypical Towny would listen to Garage music and wear branded sportswear - prefferably Nike Reebok or Adidas, Reebok Classic Training shoes, Baseball cap - either navy blue or white.

A greebo is somone who is proud to be different from everyone else, people say that they are like that because they have no friends or are always trying to kill them selves, but that's not true. Greebos are peace makers who don't want to start fights because they know it won't help anything. Too many people judge greebos by what they look like, which isn't fair, it's what is on the inside that counts.

I am a greebo, and I'm proud of it, if someone makes fun of me for being who I am I don't care.
Walk around for less than two minutes and get dirty looks from anyone who doesn't like people who are different. (Greebos rule!)

The term Greebo originates from 1950s bikers who had greased back hair hence "greebo". Many people use the word "Greebo" in reference to teenagers who listen to rock bands and dress in a manner which distances themselves from the masses. Chavs/trendies/townies etc have been fighting with greebos since the legendary "mods and rockers". Today, we see two subcultures opposing each other, Chavs and Greebos. While chavs have a tendency to be on the less academic side, a large portion of greebos continue on through further education. This is mainly due to the class divide. It has been noted by numerous sociological sources that Chavs are predominantly working class; while "Greebos" are predominantly middle class.
Chavs should be nice to greebos because one day they'll be working for one!

He is a greebo.

A member of the alternative scene, a 'greebo' can neither be classified as a 'skater', a 'spooky kid' (those little guys in KoRn hoodies and black eyeliner), a 'goth' or an 'indie kid'. Very often they fall between, wearing anything from baggies to funky hats to army shirts.

The term 'greebo' is used to describe an alternative person of such a nature by 'trendies' as a derrogatory insult.
Ehhh Gary laaaa... look a' that greebo over there!

an overused word, where it has a different meaning wherever you go. According to someone i know, greebo is another word to describe a punk up north.
Or if you happen to live in the evesham area, anyone that doesn't tuck their trouser bottoms into their socks ¬_¬ i got called it recently, i don't necessarily agree but neither do i disagree with them. I'm just a general music lover that favours a particular style of dress, and i just so happened to be wearing my beloved tramp hat at the time (that may have had something to do with it). maayybee

I agree with whoever posted the definition about how anyone in their 30's now was really a true "greebo" though, they got it right there
me: *strolls down the street*
random: hey, look at that girl wearing nothing but black and grey, chains and a stupid hat, she must be trying to be rebellious and different!
me: err...you talking about me?
random: greeeebo! grubby greeebo
me: what? i'm not
random: then what are you?
me: i am a person whose just walking down the road
random: but but you gotta be a greebo! just look at the dark colours, baggy clothes, wooly hat, chains...you have long hair!
me: yes...yes i do have long hair
random: you probably listen to korn
me: yeah and? for your information, i was just listening to ministry of sound five minutes ago
*gasps all round*
me: yeah that's right! i listen to dance! i also like drum n base, and britney spears as well as gizmachi, korn, cob and enslaved!
random: what...somethings wrong...my small fragile and shallow view of the universe is crashing down before my very eyes!

*a vortex appears, and the random is sucked into it*

becky: gee ellie, that's the fifth vortex this you've accidentally created this week, you oughtta stop scaring people like that
me: accidentally? er yeah...accidentally *shifty eyes*
becky: oh well, wanna get a coffee?
ellie: sure
