look up any word, like sex:
A type of beat played on the drums consisting of fast alternating snare/bass drum pattern with a half time cymbal pattern played overtop. When a skank beat goes over 200bpm it is then known as a blast beat
George Kollias has some great examples of how to go from a Skank Beat to a Blast Beat

A skank is a persistently vile person, someone who doesn't accept they are in the wrong. Normally a man hating individual who exagerrates pointless arguements.

Is also another word used to describe a retarded wench. A skank is not a Playboy Bunny. That is merely an illusion.
"OMG look at that whore with the playboy bunny ears, she is such a skank, I bet she doesn't wash"

"That woman walking down the street in a thong is such a skank"

"There's a fully clothed naked woman running down the street, kill this skank before she promotes porn to youngsters!"

A girl wearing tight pajama pants who carries her purse everywhere, for example: to take a dump, to watch TV, and to sex. First impressions tell you that she rides horses, has a yeast infection, and regularly sexes the English professor, while still remaining a virgin. Also, she has a very broad face and chafed thighs.
Sharon, what a skank! I smell her va-jay-jay all the way over here!

A dance to be preformed to ska, usually involving alternately puting each foot forward while lifting the knee, and then moving each foot back. The person keeps the elbows bent, and puts the hands into fists. While the use of arms and hands is possible, the focus remains on the movement and bending of the legs. This allows musicians to dance while using their arms for playing instruments. The previous is done better in large numbers in a circular fashion by preference in a "ska pit" or other dance halls. When done in a proper way the area in the middle of the circle is called "rest" where people can stand.

There are unspoken rules to skanking such as immediately helping up others who fall down and holding up lost articles of clothing (usually shoes and hats) to be claimed by their owners. Although skanking is an energetic dance and accidents occur frequently, deliberate aggression is looked down and considered amateurish by ska lovers examplified by the Mustard Plug song Skank by Numbers:

We don't want to see you slammin' in the pit, NO! We don't want to see
our girlfriends kicked, NO! We just want to see you movin' faster and
faster, to the beat of the super ska master. Phonys like to slam to
the beat of ska, we're not against that, but for us there's more. To
dance with us you needn't act like a jerk, skankin's meant for fun,
not for getting hurt!
The Busters say: Skank Down! from the song with the same name.
