A home garage, fitted out as if it is a living room- complete with chairs, sofa as well as television, games consoles, hi-fi etc. A bogan loungeroom is typified by the fact that the garage door usually remains open for all passers-by to see inside. For this reason they are more notable all-year-round in Queensland (esp Brisbane) suburbia rather than in milder climates.
See also Kiwi loungeroom- a specific derivative of the above differentiated by the occupants proudly displaying a Silver Fern or All Blacks flag on prominent wall, often drinking Steinlager and conversing loudly with only three vowel sounds.
A rarer specific case is the bogan (or Kiwi) bedroom, which is enhanced by at least, but not limited to, one bed, and used to (illegally) sleep in.
As I took the dog for a walk I saw the neighbours on a drunken Conference Call of Duty in their bogan loungeroom, nodded and fake-smiled acknowledgement.
The definitions of Bogan here are mostly by non Bogan contributors and as such give a highly bias view.
In Western Australia bogans were a bona fide youth culture embracing heavy metal music and Aussie muscle cars. Bogan took over from the old 'Rocker' term that had been around since the 50's and 60's. In fact the word Bogan is a variant of the word Bodgie, an old Australian word for Rocker.
A typical school in WA in the eighties would be divided into Surfies, Bogans and Mods(who also included skinheads, punks, goths and other anglophiles).
We did have a uniform as bogans, black jeans, black ripple sole desert boots, flannelette shirt and blue singlet or black t-shirt with your favourite metal band print(mine was AC/DC). Yes there were mullets but we generally shaved our heads.
We drove any H series Holdens and motorbikes were also popular, nowadays a true bogan is hard to distinguish from a Bikie and many of us got envolved with Bikie Clubs. But a true bogan is a Rev-head with a love of Metal. Eastern States people have expanded the term to include just any white trash.
Bogan's do burnouts and Bog-laps in HQ's
Bogan's are the surfies enemy
Bogan is a part of Australian youth culture that had it's heydey in the eighties and was born out of the earlier Rocker movement.
You will find a mass of teenage bogans in Garden Place, Hamilton, New Zealand. Generally A male who wears a lot of black, wears T-shirts with "Metallica" and "Tool" on them, has plenty of piercings in their face, and most importantly loves Heavy Metal. They swear alot to prove how hard they are, they also carry knives because Maoris often try to beat them up for their "hardxcore" appearance. See skin heads
People try to deny the fact these people are named bogans, and say "don't lable." I don't like lables either, but how else can you describe their style when they're all the fucking same!
Bogan1- "Hey I want to get my septum pierced oi!"
Bogan2- "OI fucken OI!!!!!! Im getting my dick peirced oi fuck yeah"
Bogan2- "Fuck yeah! Im thinking I'll get a massive tattoo on my back of Satan what do you think about that? Fuck fuck fuck shit shit shit"
Bogan1- "FUCK YEAH OI FUCKEN OI 666!"
The offspring of the mating of a male bogan and a female gook
b1rd and his missus (who several people claim is in fact a ladyboy) are looking forward to one day producing a brood of googans
In Australia or New Zealand: A person who believes they are not a bogan when in fact they display some or all of the traits of typical bogans such as latent alcoholism and lack of intelligence. A fauxgan reading this description would be easily identifiable as they would pronounce it forksgan, much like a bogan.
Fauxgan: look at those bogan dumb cunts
Friend: (cough) you used the phrase dumb cunt and you're holding a can of woodstock bourbon.
Fauxgan: Are you callin me a bogan? I'll smash ya cunt!
A place about 60k's away from Perth. To the untrained eye, it's a very nice looking place, clean beaches and an almost touristy feel to it.. Spend a few hours and you get to see the real place. What is considered white trash in other countries passes down to "rocko" a few years later. Tapout shirts, bad tattoos, loose DC sneakers, rats tails and old commodores polute the streets while the females aged 15 are already mothers of multiple kids to said men.
Those from there will use smaller places within the area (namely Safety Bay, Waikiki, Port Kennedy or Baldivis) to hide the fact they live in Rockingham. Though nowdays, admitting you're from Baldivis just means you're a cashed up bogan (mine money) with the latest XR8 in the most "out there" colour available (diorehha green, purple or off-orange).
Famous residents include Sam Worthington whose scenes in Avatar had to be digitally altered to remove the large amount of tribal tattoos from his arms and neck. If you pause it at the right time, you can still see these. Since leaving for Perth, and somehow ending up in Hollywood, he has yet to come back.
Hey man, where are you from?
Oh, um, it's a place called not far from Fremantle..
Dude, are you hiding the fact you're from Kwinana?
WHAT, DON'T INSULT ME. I'M FROM ROCKINGHAM.
You sound like you're proud?
Proud to not be from Kwinana at least, it's all we have going for us.
Boganicism refers to the 1. ideologies(error intended) an ideology held by groups of people within the genus of Bogannus Vulgarus, otherwise known as Bogan. Many bogans do not hold to any particular ideals, or in fact have many ideas which do not 2. involve the following: food, VB, sexual intercourse, sleep.more...
Those that do manage to stretch their cerebrum to the limit hold 3. opinions otherwise known as 'opinins' concurrent with bogan celebrations like 'Straya Day'. Straya Day involves the celebration of all things Strayan. Strutting around drunkenly bellowing the Strayan National Anthem, and buying Strayan flags that are made in China and tucking them down the back of low-slung shorts with half a metre of undergarment revealed above are common forms of expressing this particular ideology. 4. Fear of all things not bogan seems to feature strongly within the bogan ideology. They distrust anything or anyone who is not them. And boats, they do not like boats at all, though they find it particularly difficult to articulate why exactly. Nor do they appear to like natives, however this appears to be because they think that natives receive more unemployment benefits than they do, and not for any other less self-serving reason. They often have a particular fondness for the Southern Cross flag, though they are not sure what the five white blobs on it are, nor c...
