A british term used by working and middle classes to define someone who wears branded sports clothing and will typically act in the "gang mentality". Usually, this will refer to a male betwixt the years of eleven and nineteen (there are exceptions) who is exoteric, loud, condescending and "up with the birds". Scallies will typically indulge themselves in a world of material things, as a front.

Their groups will stick a non-distinct, but recognisable code of dress (so as to assume that everything they do is for the group, as opposed to for the individual). Usually, they are athletic and physically dominant. While scallies can be of any class, the average is high working class or lower middle-class.

Scallies intimidate those who are seen as a threat. They are interested in whatever is in style, and contemporary, as opposed to long-standing institutions.
Contrary to what you may believe, hating "scallies" does not qualify one for intellectualism, nor does it make you "individual". By defining words on a website as a group, do you really think that you are any better than them?

Owning a Nirvana album does not assert any superioir musical taste or ability, nor can it be defined as "real music", because all music is real.


Thus concludes another session fo bitching at the non-exoteric "moshers", and the annoying as fuck "scallies".

A woman of questionable morals, especially sexually. Usually slovenly and ugly in appearance.
Greg went home with that homeless woman he met at the truck-stop. She was quite the scally.

A member of a british subculture. Scallyism is particularly apparent in Liverpool.

The general traits of scallies:

They swear more than is necessary,
Get unnecessarily drunk, and smoke marijuana, because they think it is 'kewl'.
They have a tendency to be racist, homophobic, and abusive towards people who have different taste in music to Westlife, and different taste in clothes to tracksuits.
As the scally gets older, he/she'll normally spend his life claiming money from the government, due to not being able to get a job, as the marijuana has destroyed all the mental ability they had, and they spent all their school years attacking mentally ill and elderly people whilst under the influence of alchohol, instead of learning.
It is not uncommon for a female scally to get pregnant so she can claim child benefit, giving her enough money to buy that little bit more of cocaine at the end of the week. But most female scallies are stupid enough to have unprotected sex anyway.
They also happen to have the worst conversational skills, and the worst sense of humour in the world.
scally 1: Ey this fuckin' bus is shit. and that bus drivers a fuckin' faggot!
scally 2: ha ha ha! yeah... HEY BUS DRIVER! YOU'RE FUCKIN' GAY!
scally 1: ha ha ha... you're dead funny...
ey look at that gaybod over there... he's walkin', an he's got a fuckin' walkin' stick... ha ha ha! old people are so gay.

i am yet to find a scally girl i find attractive, i bet ya some of them are, but then they hide their beauty by making themselves look like they are going in for a part on Willy Wonka's chocolate factory as an Umpa Lumpa, with their bright orange or dull brown faces. The trackies they wear makes their arses look huge and saggy. As for the lads, with their bald heads making their heads REAL weird looking and odd shaped, also, making their ears look rather large and sticking out... Could you find that attractive? HA, no way.
Oh and of course their knuckles, in their attempt to 'out-scally' the other members in the group (and other people) they will hit random things, even walls, so that their knuckles are injured looking like they have had many fights. but realy, they just look like they have hit many walls, in most cases, this is true.
scally:"look at da scaarrz on me ands im well ard m8"
mosha:oh go punch a wall

A scally are obvious to notice, PANTS TUCKED INTO THEIR SOCKS.
Typical scallies are the ones that often kick-off with anyone just to show their "bravery"
Half of them just get pissedall the time, at least 70% of them.
All alone, scallies are scared and are pussies, you say anything to them when they are alone, they have no words and start shaking.
Scallies are usually grouped up with a maximum of 5 people together, their brands totally suck, Fred Perry, Burberry etc.
If you ever see an ambulance pass by on a nightclub night, it's usually a typical scally kicking the total shit out of someone.
I hope all scallies burn in hell, especially for dissing Kurt Cobain and the rest of our styles.

FUCKING BURN IN HELL ASSHOLES.
Moshers: Hey look, a scally all alone.
Scallies mind: SHIT, I need my gang of thugs.
Moshers: What a wimp he is shitting his pants.
Scally: FUCKIN' MOSHAZ. (Runs off)
(All moshers laugh)
