Short for "Grindcore."

Grindcore, or "grind" for short is a type of very fast speed/thrash metal, death metal, or hardcore punk or perhaps a combination of both(depending on how the band plays it). Grind is characterized by very fast drumming that makes predominant use of the blastbeat, very fast thrash metal-style guitar playing, growling/screaming vocals(much like in death metal), and usually rather short songs. The world's shortest song ever is "You Suffer," a grind song written and recorded by grind pioneers Napalm Death. This song only lasts 1 to 4 seconds and its lyrics are "You suffer. But why?"

And despite what many people may think, the British bands Napalm Death and Carcass did not really invent grind. Napalm Death named the genre. Grind is actually an American invention, started in the mid-eighties by Repulsion, a death metal band from Mississippi who wanted to create their own style of brutal music. In 1986, they've released the world's first full-length grind album, "Horrified." Their style of metal was later copied by bands such as Napalm Death and Carcass and the genre still goes on today, though it has never gotten to the mainstream. Still, it's much better than all the nu-metal crap that has plagued the music world since the mid-90s.
Types of grind:

A group of lesbians.
A gaggle of geese...a herd of elephants...a grind of lesbians.

I went to the coffeehouse to grab an espresso, but a grind of lesbians was protesting for fair trade coffee, blocking the door.

When an individual pushes his/herself to attain a goal.

1) Your hustle

2) Good work ethic, doing what you do.

Ex: Getting money, editing pix, singing...whatever your hustle is.

When you're "on your grind" then you're doing a good/great job at whatever you're doing.
"I see you on your grind."

"Dang you're on your grind."

"I'm just getting my grind on."

I'm getting back on my grind."

A word used in any MMO representing the repetitive actions taken in order to make the character stronger. The grind is also a substitute for normal life functions. Sleeping, eating, drinking and being social are not important, when it comes to grinding.
Gamer is to grind as Pacman is to dots. Wakka wakka wakka!

Gamer1: Yeah, I'll probably grind all weekend trying to get to that map.
Gamer2: Man, it'll take forever.
Gamer1: I know, but I'll make it happen. I'm looking forward to my next set of gear.
Girl1: Losers...

a dance that, for the male, doesn't require much skill and is almost pure confidence. Its kind of like going off of the high drive, very tempting but also kind of intimidating, but once done seems easier every time.

consists of a chick "grinding" her ass on a guys crotch
Guys lurking: dude i cant dance, and plus its just a bunch of girls dancing how do i get into the middle
Knowledgable grinder: just wait till you see a break and jump in, ez at the end of a song.
Former lurkers: ya lady butts!
