1)A thing that people usually slap onto others after declaring themselves an original.
2)That little white tag on the back of those sweatshop made clothes

something used to catagorize people usualy kids who seem to lean twards a certain style of clothing based on the kind of music they listen to.

Word used to define groups wich are different from the majority. olmost always spoken out loud by the "cool" people, but most people do it in their head without them knowing.
The labeled person will olmost always dissagree, because the labels are always the extreme image of their ideals, or because they just look like the label, but do not share there ideals.

Labelling is always wrong, because it is NEVER accurate
