There are many definitions of greebo, I will run through all of them, I am not saying which ones are nessesarily right or wrong, thats for you too decide:

Greebo's are into any style of music from rock 'n' roll to metal to indie. They are generally found in Cardiff, Leeds and St Albans. The term greebo is used all over to describe anyone from an emo to a goth to an indie kid. By what I've heard from most people, they dont exist in Ireland or Scotland, only in England and Wales. Please correct me if I'm wrong.

The term 'Greebo' originally stood for 'Greasy Boy' as greebo's used to be associated with not washing there hair often. Greebos generally have long, unbrushed hair which is un-dyed and un-gelled.

Greebo boys wear baggy clothes such as jeans and combat trousers. Sometimes a checkered or studded belt is added. A 'Greebo Chain' is the most recognisable thing about a greebo. A Greebo Chain is a chain worn from one belt loop on the side of a pair of jeans to another belt loop. It is let too hang down as low as possible. These are often used to keep there wallets being stolen by Chavs by attatching it too the wallet. A skate brand t-shirt - baggy - and any shoes from skate shoes to nike too DM boots. Sometimes beanie hat too.

True greebo girls dress similarly too the boys. They wear baggy jeans and similar shoes. Girls often wear Vans shoes, not the slip ons on skate shoes, just the normal trainers. They wear boys t-shirts because they are more baggy.

The more often girls who 'claim' to be greebo are more likely to be seen dressed in regular clothes. Ugg boots and tight jeans. Waistcoats and dress shirts. Similar to late mod style meets skater.

Greebo's cant skate. They try and fail or are just not good enough to skate with the skate crowd. Yet they often hang around with skaters and BMX or Mountain Bike. Some people describe greebos as skaters who cant skate. This is partly true. If you are a greebo who skates, your not a greebo, your a skater. That is the fine line. Greebo's are similar too moshers too. They look similar and like similar music and hobbys.

Greebos are not emo! Greebo's will never wear a more than one or two black items at once. Greebo's will never wear tight clothing. Baggy. That is greeno. Tight? That is emo and occasionally indie kid.

Greebo's hate chavs. They are at a constant war with each other. Greebos will refer to chavs as 'Chavscum' and chavs will refer to greebos as 'Dirty Greebos'. Although greebos are often seen as trouble makers and look threatning, they are not. A greebo will never start a fight and will avoid one at almost all costs. Chavs are often seen as the victims because they will run home too there rich mummys and daddys crying about how the greebo hit them when it is always the chav starting the fight. ALWAYS!

The hoodie. The most important thing about greebos. A TRUE GREEBO WILL NEVER BE SEEN WITHOUT HIS OR HER HOODIE!! A baggy hoodie is what defines a greebo! Never white! And never tight!

Greebo brands are; Fender, Dubster, Quicksilver, Oakley, British Knights, Vans, Plain Lazy, No Fear and H&M. The main ones being British Knights, Quicksilver and Dubster because they are big in size and cheap. For the slightly richer people there is Vans, H&M and Oakley. They are more expensive and tighter fitting but are also seen being worn by greebos.

Greebos are into all sorts of bands. Underground, mainstream or stadium-fillers. Greebos aren't fussy. Some popular greebo bands are; Green Day, RHCP, Nirvana, Kasier Chiefs, Arctic Monkeys, Avenged Sevenfold, Blur, Oasis and Guns 'n' Roses.

Unlike hardcore indie kids and punks, greebos arent fussed about bands selling out. If a band is good, a band is good. Whether other people think that or not does not change the band. In fact, when some bands sell out, they actually become better than before. Take Green Day, a LOT of people hated American Idiot and said they had sold out. This is an extremely popular greebo album. I am not saying all greebos agree with this but from what ive heard, thats the general idea.

Greebos are not at war with emos. This is sometimes the thought that is broadcasted but they manage too live with each other quite happily... well, as happy as an emo can be I suppose. A greebo who cuts themself is not a greebo. They are chucked out of the group of greebos amd are rarely let back in unless they grovel, A LOT!! This generally means they become emos and then move on after realising what an extremely stupid idea it is too cut yourself. Some become punks or moshers or skaters. it is unlikely they will become a goth, metal head or indie kid, but everything is possible.

Greebo is, in some places, spelt with one O. No-body knows why, it just is.

Greebos will generally not like a greebo who has left them for another genre, even for a small amount of time and if they were never really great mates in the first place. It is a commitment to be a greebo, it is not a god idea to cut yourself or leave for another group, they will hate you forever. Some get forgiven and are allowed to return but this is unlikely. If the leader of a greebo clan changes genre, sometimes the other members will follow. If not, someone else will become one.

Greebo leaders are not actually verbally said, it just kind of happens. If you are in a greebo clan and often find yourself as the center of attention by a lot of the group and when you walk somewhere, without saying anything the others will follow, this means your a leader. Being a leader does not mean you rule on high!! It just means you have minor power over what the clan decide to do. Like for instance, if you said 'Lets go to town today', others would generally come. Unlike if you said 'Gather together all your money together, we're going on a camping holiday and there's nothing you can do about it'. Nothings gonna happen and they will probably be annoyed with you for saying it. natural consequences.

If your wondering, a clan is a group of greebos. Generally high in numbers because safety is in numbers against chavs. Anything from 8 people upwards is a clan.

I think thats about it apart from there is practically no posers in greebo. There just isnt any. Anyone who wants to be a greebo or join a clan is accepted. Unless there a chav or bully obviously. Whether someone is a geek or not does not decide whether they are in a clan or not. Geeks are widely accepted.

The only last thing is drugs. A lot of greebos smoke and drink. Cannabis is also often used. My advice is dont get involved with any of it apart from the odd pint for fun! Only joking! DON'T DO ANY DRUGS OR DRINK AND DON'T SMOKE!!! AT ALL!!! EVER!!! YOU ARE NOT A CHAV!!!
Chav: Fucking dirty greebo! Cut your hair you greasy twat!
Greebo: Excuse me, ive got to go...
Walks away
Chav: Yeah thats it blud, run off, wasteman!
Greebo quietly: Chavscum!!

Greebo: from my experience greebo's are a usually friendly people, wearing an assortment of black clothing, often being mixed up with goths and metal heads but lacking in the metalhead brashness and the goths usual shy personality. Wearing an assortment of accessories such as metal chains, baggy black jeans usually from "soho" shops, occasional tattoos resembling things associated with death, grim occasions, morbid characters etc, spiky wrist bands and occasionally metal rings and with black or dark hair, Greebos also have the stereotype of having greasy or unwashed hair, coinciding with the theory that they do not wash. They also wear dull coloured clothes whilst lacking any vibrance.
Many of the greebos i have met have been clean and well mannered, yet i would have to admit that most are unhygenic and lacking in any self respect for cleanliness.Although with any social "group" i try to keep an open mind, Greebos dissapoint me in their many links to the scene and emo groups. Casual sex and complete disregard for partners and proper relationship seem to end up with most greebos becoming depressive and obsessive, possibly because of their ways they became greebos or because of the like minded people they surround themselves with.
Greebos seem to listen to all sorts of Rock music, mainly heavy metal, Screamo metal and death metal but also emo music and pop emo. This means bands such as My Chemical Romance, Avenged Sevenfold, Trivium and Arch Enemy but they seem to branching out into bands such as Enter Shikari with the blend of trance and metal. Music is a main interest with Greebos, and defines them,as with most other social groups. Concert going and hanging around in usual surrounding such as parks,town statues and landmarks listening to music on loud stereos is a common theme in greebo life also.
Some greebos associate themselves with emos, punks and some skaters, forming an alliance and socialising through their interests, eg music, sex and hobbies, such as skating, circus activities and poetry.
Greebos are also associated with self harm, and as i mentioned before depression, another key link to "emos".
On the whole, Greebos are a caring, friendly group, creative and well meaning, yet lacking in much moral fibre and standards, in respect to relationships they appear whoreish and thoughtless.
"hey look, some greebos, be careful cos theyre a little dirty and slightly imposing but they seem to have written a mildly entertainin yet depressing song."

Chavs Get Scared Cos They Think That We Have The Devil On Our Side

A greebo is generally anybody who is different. They usually get abuse hurlled at them because of this by chavs/townies/arrogant twats. I am called a greebo/emo because i wear the clothes i want to listen to the music i want to and generally dont give a shit about fitting in with the crowds. People who labbel others and in effect bully them are usually scared of what others think of them so they try to fit in and make everybody laugh at someone else. Most greebos/greebs listen to some form of rock music or something not mainstream, are peaceful people and dont start fights for the hell of it and are just being themselves.
all of these examples happened to me or friends.

sitting in a maths class and getting things thrown at me because i am "greeb" by a group of guys who everybody is scared of because the could kick the shit out of them.

walking down an path at lunch time out of school when a group of year 9 chavs/townies/popular kids thought a group of year 10 greebs said "they could have them" so made two of them get down on their kness and say sorry. the greebos not wanting to fight did this and walked away whilst having things thrown at them and threats yelled at them.

Standing in the courtyard at breaktime where most of the school are. Generally the big groups of greebs stand on one side and big group of chavs townies on the other and the other people spread out between in little groups. when the chavs etc start to throw any food the have at the greebs this happens nearly every day.

a fat kid taking the piss out of you nearly the whole way through the day about skate boards, music, being greasey and dirty just so the "cool kids" are to busy laughing at the greebs to pick on the fat kid.

Deluded teenagers (usually) who believe that by some how wearing all black and listening to rock music they become "individuals" while remaining blissfully unaware that they're just creating their own version of so called "chavs" and "trendies". They generally moan about being picked on and "labeled" while at the same time labeling others that don't conform to them.

They're no different from any other group effected by trend, punks, greebos, chavs, indie kids etc. It's all the same.
The Greebo's where moaning about how they are the only "individuals"

Greebo has been disused in many ways, now it means to be somewhere between goth and punk, usually listens to metal/punk/rock WRONG!
The traditional meaning of greebo:
Split the word
Gree - bo
Gree - Greasy
Bo - Biker
Greebo- Greasy Biker
so therefore a greebo is a person who loves their motorcycle and spends hours tuning it and gets greasy in the process.
Townie: Oi ya f***in Greebo!!!
Unsuspecting Punk/Goth: WTF!
Townie: Yeah! You! F***in Gay BOI!
Greebo: *rides in on Harley Davidson* I'm The only F***in Greebo here! Now Pi** off ya sill T**T!
Townie: AH! NO!
Unsuspecting Punk/Goth: Erm... yeah... okay...

Wow, there's alot of bad spelling and grammer here... Anyway...
A greb is someone who tends to ware what they want and how they want to. They don't start or pick fights with anyone, except when they are backed into a corner and have nowhere to go.
Generaly, grebs will casualy walk away/round people who are hurling abuse at them.
Grebs don't:
-Hand out free hugs randomly to others in the group
-Start fights
-Smoke weed, pot, anything at all (not to my knowlege anyway)
-Listen to rap, dance or junk like that because the lyrics usualy go as follows: "Yo, I'm rappin' and I spank my white biatch up. Ya can't do nufin' about it." Or "I saw you in a bar and I wanted to bang you repeat several times"

Grebs do:
-Generaly do much better than chavs/townies academicaly
-Listen to music which have a meaning and can save there lives one day " It's easier to run, Replacing this pain with something numb, It's so much easier to go, Than face all this pain here all alone." Basicly means that if you stay here by yourself and feel the pain from the name calling chavs, one should leave and make the pain numb so it doesn't bother one.
-Have a unique sence of fashion. Most beleive grebs look very similar. But if you looked harder, you'll notice they ware different jeans from each other, you'll hardly ever find 2 grebs with the same hoody on in a group and you'll find that they all have different haircuts. (Unlike chavs/townies who go for the skinhead look... Very original...)
-Can get girlfriends/boyfriends who ACTUALY love and cherish each other. Unlike chav/townies who think it's just another bit of cheap cock/fanny if they say they love them.

Grebs can get along with lots of people but choose not to even try, it's because most hurl abuse at them when they get close. I should know, I'm a greb myself and have an awsome girlfriend (we've been going out for 5 months... That's 4 months and 29 days longer than a couple of chavs can go out for.)

P.s. Some of the quieter and possibly anarexic grebs do know martial arts and self defence, so if you're not careful, I will drop kick your nose nose again. Got it? Good :)
Oops! Did I just type that? You know who you are insert a somewhate diabolican laugh here
*Grebbo walks down the street, casualy talking to another grebbo*
*Chavs on bikes shout pathetic insults the grebs have heard many times before so it doesn't bother them*
*Grebbos continue walking*
*Chavs eventualy go away and get run over buy a 10 tonne truck*
*Grebbos don't hold a grudge and continue walking*
A greebo likes to be different and is usualy bullied
