Prior to the apparent adoption of the word by chavs, a "random" was a slang term used to refer to a person who was clearly and obviously out of place in a particular milieu and whose presence was therefore questioned. Usually a neutral to negative connotation.
A: Who was that guy in the glasses and tweed jacket who showed up at our sorority meeting?
B: Clearly some random.

Something that happens out of the norm, doesn't adhere to pattern, chaotic, nowadays a VERY overused and commonly misused word, making people like us who try to use it in it's true sense sound like teenage douchebags.
(retarded teenage use) We don't really need some random bass line in there.

#2 That shirt is totally random.

#3 Correct usage. "The word "random" should not be used randomly, you douchebag. Of course, you're so stupid you don't even know the definition, so why do I even try?"

This word is now a noun as well as an adjective. It refers to a person whom you meet 'randomly', or whose identity or relation to anybody else is unknown. It is often used to refer to people you meet at parties or on nights out, whose names you don't know or forget, and whom you never see again.

You can also say 'random guy', 'random girl' etc.
