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.

Well it would seem that everyone thinks being a "greebo", "townie", "chav" or "goth" is very important, if i'm a greebo (and judging by most of this tripe i am) then a greebo is a creative person who doesn't enjoy having the crap kicked out of them. surly that just makes me a creative person who doesn't like violence? greebo is one of those terms like "chav" that are completly meaningless.
anyone "what the hell is a greebo?"

anyone else "its a b.s. term used to describe someone you can't describe"

anyone "oh really?"

anyone else "does it matter?"

Everyone "NO!"

A greebo is a person who usually lives in a rural small city in the midwest or someplace in canada or alaska. They follow mainstream metal and hard rock bands like Marlyn Manson or Slipknot. They buy those baggy fake bondage pants from hottopic.

But just because they don't know anything about real metal or punk rock, don't let that fool you, they're still hardcore as hell, they're just ignorant to boot. They tend to live in trailor parks or indian reservations and have mothers who are probably meth addicts or alcoholics.

They usually don't complete high-school and are charged with a variety of domestic violence crimes. They do plenty of drugs, and talk about it freely.

The reason why they dont know about the more obscure bands is because simply they haven't been exposed to any real 'scene' living in their rural community.
Tom was a goddamn greebo asshole with a face full of zits and long black hair. Spent all his time smoking ciggarettes in the highschool parking lot trying to sell meth, even though he dropped out 2 years ago. And he always wears the same goddamn Rob Zombie T-Shirt. I hear he also had sex with his cousin, but what else to expect in Alaska.

A 'greebo' is not some peace loving individual at all you hypocritical twats i am always classed as a chav so how do you have the cheek to say you dont want trouble when you mouth off in groups and if theres five or less you shit a brick if i come over to you and this individuality, you all listen to the same music, wear black, go to 'gigs' sit on skate parks etc, the majority of greebos are rich boy/girl mummys boys/girls that go on about how shit life is on your way home to a five bedroom house most of you are faking and just want attention and so what if chavs want to wear lacoste etc, my stone island jumpers was 140 my jacket 440 lacoste tracksuits are 180 and i work two jobs full time and part time and pay for my own shit including my car so no im not claiming benefits to afford it so either speak up in public or shut up being keyboard warriors you bunch of fucking idiots.
Greebo : theres a chav dude ha ha omg hes like smoking a fag and spitting oh my god cant wait to tell everyoneeeeee, fuckin mugs

Having reead through all the definitions there only seems to be one correct, and apparently, only one written by someone over 20. If you're not in you thirties it was likely you missed it. A greebo listened mainly to the Poppies, Neds etc, not metal or rock(especially not Iron Maiden). If you weren't around in the early 1990's them I'm afraid you're just a wannabe. Sorry kids! But definately keep on trying to keep the contemporary alternative scene alive.
Visit a Wonderstuff concert and they all appear from mid-thirty-greebo-land.

Greebo refers to the Stourbridge music scene of the early 90s, championed by such bands like Ned's Atomic Dustbin.

For some reason, it's now attributed to a subculture who thinks they're above another sub-culture (the so called "chavs"), to the extent they wish all the "chavs" were dead. As you can tell, they're not that familiar with the words "irony" or "hypocrite".
Greebo: all you chavs are the same!
Chav: all you greebos are the same!
Everyone else: *rolls eyes*

people who have longish hair, wear baggy clothing and listen to heavy music. TOTALLY DIFFERENT FROM PUNX, but we usually get on. have a habit of getting targetted by chavs/rudies/cunts cos they look a bit wierd and dont look hard. in this case, us punx, who look hard, must stand up adn tell em to fuck off because, however good they think they are, greebos DO NOT tell chavs to fuck off. if they do they get beat the shit into, which us punx dont cos we acctually fight. generally ok people, so leave them alone, espescially if they're hangin with punx.
Chav: ay look bled! some fukin greebo biatches, innit? lets cruise over and lick em up!
Greebos: oh shit. chavs.
Punx: Fuck off you cheap cunts, unless you want a bottle round your fucking head
Chavs: oh shit bled! hard ass mofos! split bled, split! before we iz done in like the cunts we are, beld!
Greebos: thanks
Punx: shutup and learn to fight man.
