Top definition
A greebo is a person who listens to rock/punk/metal music and doesn't follow fashion trends.
They don't usually class themselves as being a greebo but are assigned that title by trendies/rudes. Some of them may look quite threatening but generally they are all around nice people and they resist starting fights or arguments with people who do follow trends. However, if you were to ask one if they had anything against trendies or rude boys their answer would seldom be 'no'. Almost all Greebos have some kind of disliking towards trendies mainly because they make their lives hell. Abuse is hurled at them when they walk down the street and they frequently get the crap beaten out of them for absolutely no reason other than the fact that they are different.
Greebos also seem to be fairly itelligent people if not it one way, they are bound to be intelligent in another, this may contribute to why greebos rarely start fights with trendies and rudes, because they are intelligent enough to know that it wont solve anything.
Greebos are alternative people who just want to be treated fairly.
Trendies: *sniff the air* Look, theres something that looks nothing like us, lets make it's life a living hell.

Idiotic-sounding definition for a person who likes heavy metal/rock etc. Used by members of the flock to pigeonhole individuals into a category. Describes a person who won't follow boring trends or be brainwashed by the constant stream of waste excreted from the filthy abyss of the pop music industry.
Look at those gloves! You f*cking greebo. You want to get yourself some Calvin Klein gear. Beat her up, babe.

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.

Greebo was originally a word meaning bikers on big harleys that usually have long hair. Now it generally anyone who has a life, me being an art student get called a 'greebo' for wearing normal not-baggy yet not-tight clothes.
'Greebo's are the peace-keepers reguardless of the fact that they are the ones looking intimidating.
Experiment: Walk around uptown and see how many people insult me wearing different clothing
Results-BAGGY CLOTHING: I was shouted at many-a-time by yobs, things like 'Greeb' 'greb' 'fuckin gareebo'. When I replied i got told to 'shut the fuck up you stupid ginge' (i dye my hair bright red)
Results-NORMAL CLOTHING: Generally the same. No difference at all. People shouting at me, insulting, etc
Results-BURBERRY CLOTHING: I didnt get shouted at, not even once, I even got asked out by this moron with his eyebrow pierced.
END OF TEST RESULTS CONCLUSION: Yobs must be shot on sight, not the townies because some have proven to be good friends reguardless of what people look like.

there are many different types of people who make up the greebo population. all of them are different but have one or two things in common, they listen to rock & roll of different types and dont wear fashionable clothes. Yeah they may look a bit stuipid sometimes but theyt really dont give a fuck. they dont have a problem with non greebos so all the stuff about greebos being trouble makers who cause fights and problems with non greebos is crap. greebos will cause not much problem. im not saying their are squeaky clean but they dont go looking for trouble. they just wanna have a good time. greebos and goths often get mixed up which is stupid because if you knew what a greebo was and what a goth was then you know the difference. Oh yeah and they are quick clever and witty so watch out. im a goth so you can say this is bias if you want but i couldnt really give a fuck. like when people shout abuse at me for being a goth, i couldnt give a fuck. people say all this crap about individuality being fake. i say fuck off and mind your own buisness like greebos do. if you gonna insult someone, know your facts. case closed. no more problems then.
someone who wants to cause trouble - greebo, what the fuck you think you are,greebo, you look so stupid,greebo, you wanna fight, greebo, cuz your not like me, im trying to make you look small and silly, greebo.

person who is being accused of being greebo - fuck off you silly twat and come back when you know the meaning of the word

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!)
