Noun : refers to people who listen to a range of music from punk to metal. It was once common to see greebos wearing blue jeans black hoodies and to have a metal chain hanging from their pocket however this seemed to disappear after the ascent of the chav as many greebos descended into chavdom. Greebo was once used as an insult by chavs and those with little understanding of the side darker of life however over time the insult has faded and it has just become accepted by people such as myself as a way of describing us. Greebo is somewhere between skater and goth.
chav: you fuckin' greebo
chav; *hangs head in shame*
A person who is different from others (others meaning: chavs, trendys, preps, geezers - whatever you want to call them) - 'greebo' is their word for skaters, rockers, moshers, emos, goths etc. they like some sort of rock/alternative music including emo, metal, goth, punk, etc.
they dress differently from them usually in loose/baggy trousers, hoodies and band shirts and military style clothing (e.g camoflage patterns) - or girls may wear net gloves and stripey, brightly coloured tops and accesories.
they are often pretty intelligent in one way or another and are often mistaken for trouble-makers. though they are smart enough to know that fighting wont solve anything and therefore arnt actually the ones who start things - they are provoked. when a chav (insert other names here)says something they can usually answer wittily or with the use of long words - this can often confuse stupid people. many dont actually have anything against chavs but dont like them because they make their lives a misery with their constant taunts. they like to keep themselves to themselves.
chavs often dont actually know what the word means
chav: "oi, greebo! what u fukin lookin at? eh? ya startin are ya!?"
'greebo': "oh i see, its now a crime for one to glance at another?"
chav: "oooo shes tryin to be cleva wid us!"
'greebo': "correction - i wasnt 'trying'" *walks off*
A term to categorise a person who likes hard rock/metal music. Wears Baggy trousers/jeans and a shirt emblazened with a band's name or logo. Generally hated by chavs for no apparant reason. Some greebo's may like some rap or hip-hop music, but usually a minority. They DO NOT hug trees (that's hippies). Contarst to belief, many do not self-harm or say they do. They are not depressed. I am a greebo, and in no way am i depressed, im a very happy person.
Chav 1 - OMFGZ itz one of dem goffiks ova der init gazza.
Chav 2 - lets go kick im in for being alive and not likin rap or any other mind numingly repetative music
Greebo - okay then *continues to walk by, minding own business*
Chav 1 - yer walk away u fukin pussy fukin goffik devil init
*4 greebos walking down a street, a chav cycles past, stares gormlessly at the 4 greebo's. the 4 stare back. Chav cycles further down the street. 5 seconds pass and the chav says "yer and wat ya fukin greebos?"
This concludes that chavs cannot stand up for themselves when alone
A greebo used to be a hells angel without a motor bike. Someone who didnt wash, long greesy hair and would always been seen in the same set of clothes. You can hear this word be chanted in high school grounds or out around your local town. It will be shouted with a short gr-and an expanteding e- eding with bow.
greeeeeebo. which then is usually follwed by
A greebo is a word commly used by chavs for people who arnt chav. It is mostly used for; emos,goths,scence kids and grungers. This word is used Beuacse they cant tell the diffrence and have nothing better to do with there sad little lives.
'Greebo' is commonly used as an insult by chavs or townies to offend anybody that has a disimilar dress sense to themselves. May be used with any of the prefixes 'fucking', 'dirty', or 'filthy' and if being adressed by a chav or higher than average intelligence you may even get a suffix, for example: 'cunt' 'twat' or 'bastard'. This could give any number of wonderful insults like 'filthy greebo cunt'.more...
Other stereotypes can be used such as emo, grunger or goth but essentially to the chav mind it is all the same.
I could define the stereotypical 'greebo', 'emo' or 'goth' but really theres no need because these are just stereotypes and if you ever find yourself called one when you wouldn't necessarily consider yourself to be in that sort of social group then it is most likely because you are wearing an item of clothing that is black or hangs loosely on your frame, or if you have hair that spans between lengths of partially covering your forehead, to entirely covering your face.
To those hollering these names at you, regardless of whether they insult you or merely make you laugh at your assailant's lack of intelligence, the content of your character does not matter,...
Another name for rockers from the early to mid 90's (Nirvana era), particularly before the current emo and definately not goths. More influenced by the grungy/scruffy look, torn jeans, band t-shirt etc and followed by the skate era. Nerdy tendancies and not driven by popularity. Basically the anti-trendies. Dont get them as much now. The kids from that era will be in their late 20's to late 30's now and probably have grown up. Tended to not wash very often (clothes or themselves)
Kurt Cobain was the king of greebos
