The contemporary Bogan:
White trash with a severe American influence on their language, social skills and lack of fashion sense.
Other phrases apparently evident are such terms as: "C'mon Son, You're not HARD enough!". These sexist and somewhat smelly individuals can be seen anywhere in a Pub, boasting about how drunk they got the week before. The only danger that a Bogan will ever encounter is one involving drowing in his own vomit, yet despite all evidence, some favourable qualities must be apparent to some people. These people are clearly Boganettes, and love to be abused by sexist, chauvanistic, sport loving, unintelligent, and overall stupid men. Australian society has taken a downfall, and the Bogan population are the "image" that is often represented as Aussie Culture. Well, this misconseption can be set straight, get these beer-swiggers of our continent, they are of no value.
Bogan: C'mon son, what's wrong with ya?
Human: I beg you're pardon?
Bogan: You're not HARD enough!
Human: What does that even mean? How does drinking a light beer establish an inferiority of any kind?
*At this point the Bogan becomes confused and resorts to violence, beating the human to the ground*
Is't it ironic how intelligence makes you a dumbass...
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 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.
bogans usually tear around in their ancient and beat up commodores and falcons. the male of the species is usually a league/afl supporter, and sports a mullet or atrocious hair and flannel, while the female carrys her children around, communicating with offspring and other bogans in a high pitched screech, painful to the ears of humans. they all swear like troopers, smoke like chimneys, drink like fish, and have no regard whatsoever for other people. commonly on the dole.
a bogan is an imported species in australia, they are considered a pest, similar to cane toads
