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.
'I wouldn't like to classify myself as anything, but I am proud to be a greebo!'
'I would rather be a greebo than a chav.'

greebos are rock/punk/indie listening hipocrites who wear baggy jeans n tops which usually represent a band/ fire/ skating brand or death. Greebos are hypocrites as they always cry and moan in order to be treated fairly like an normal person, when they themselves dislike people that dress in tracksuits and listen 2 grime/ drum n bass/ garage and label them chavs, as a result of their prejudice against these people some greebos are beaten. some greebos go as far as Wrist sliting. But all greebos constantly crave attention by wearing bright colours in order to stand out. And they wander why they get abused.
greebos: look at those chavs (PREJUDICE) siting on the wall (laugh)

people dressed in sporty clothes listening to diferent music to the greebos: Why are they looking at us what have we done to them

greebos: haha neds, dirty chavs living in council houses init

people dressed in sporty clothes listening to diferent music to the greebos: stop taking the piss, i have enough of this constant prejudice lets beat them!

( a few dayz later)

greebos: it was awful there were these chavs siting on a wall and they just came over n beat us up just because we were diferent :(

A greebo - The peaceful type of oposite to townies

But...the ones classed as greebo's infact, HATE being called greebos!
These ones who call themselves greebos are basic wannbes....they purposly become "depressed", harm for attention, and obssess over extremely mainstream bands that are way too manufactured for their own good, eg: HIM, or The rasmus.

They basically become what they THINK are goths.

They also give themselves a bad name....they go on about how unfair life is and why do they get picked on and bullied....and they complain about how they are different and thats why....but rock/metal/punk has been givin a bad name by greebos because they listen to it, and it gets blamed for stupid children doing stupid things bcause "they listen to rock" which any smart person would no is rubbish and they are just attention seeking.

Black, baggy, old, cloths are usually the dress code for the greb's.

No one knows why they call themselves different, they arent, they are the same as everyone else that dresses and acts liek them
these greebos are usually 11-15 yr olds, but it can stretch to 17 if they are stupid enough...thank god though a greebo is a phase...much like the townie attitude and others....eventually they grow out of it and realise "god ir eally did know nothing"

if there was a such thing as a "none wannbe greebo" then i guess they'd listen to rock/metal/punk, be peaceful, and a normal average joe...dressing how they feel comfortable, or in a way they are influenced by what they listen to....but alas these type of people HATE being called greebo's as they all know a greebo is a wannabe goth/punk/metaler(thts if ur guna put labels on it)
Greebo: "OH MY GOD! VILLE VALO!!!*licks poster*"


Greebo: "Im a greebo! i hate townies! i hate my life!"

A skiv. They smell a lot and tend to do rather skivvy things, like eat things off the floor, or fleg on people, or ask for bum sex.

dont you sad people see that you shouldnt be a greebo or townie or whatever you should be whatever suits you wether it's seventies or goth but what is really pissing me of are those pople who put things like "greebos are people townies hate because they are cooler and better than them." Thats just pathtic because to me townies are better they are classy to me but I have plenty of mates wich are greebos and it just sounds as though you wont like sombody because they are wearing over priced nike trainers or a punk rock band you have never heard of on their sweater so i'm going to actually say what a greebo is without being any of those things.

A greebo (greb) is somebody who tends to wear clothing that is comfortable for them and is streotyped to enjoy listening to punk/metal/drum and bass when really they could like a veriaty including garage etc.
There were loads f townies and greebos hanging in the town

Well, on a shcool trip me and my friends had to teake off our braceletes because we were about to do archery. Yes me and my friends listen to rock music and may be rockers but we aren't how you all think we are rockers are cool. Me and my freind were saying how strange it looked without our bracelets on. I asked a boy who i know who was in our activity group if we looked strange without them. (we usaully wear them) and he said your a greebo! WE looked at eachother confused. What does that mean?! i asked him and he said greasy haired rocker! I was hurt by this, my hair is no way greasy. Later on, still on the trip a Chav *shudders* apparently called my friend this, i told her if he said that to her again tell him atleast we know how to dress (as you probaly know chavs have a bad dress sense) she laughed. But i dont agree with this atall. In my opinion it's just a word they made up because they dont like us. Can't see why though because we are really nice people and theres nothing wrong with us. (Chavs) are obviously jealous of us lol. So to me Greebo is a offensive word used against people such as rockers. Its rubbish. Associated with people who don't take pride in their appearance. But we do. Most people do! They seem to think this of (rockers) etc like they are anti social and dont care about the way they look.UNTRUE. I do all the time. But thats just my opionion of what this word greebo means from my experiances.
Chav: "oi greebo"
Us: *confused just walks away it means nothing as its untrue*

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.
