A chav is someone that looks expensive,
They hate moshers and goths, this is because they are at opposite ends of the scale. Chavs are well dressed and like to show themselves off, a mosher or goth is someone that dresses in black and is covered in grease, they try to sink into the background.
Chavs hang about anywhere that they can get served for booze or fags or just anywhere that they will have a good laugh!
Why do people have a problem with them?
Chavs have great taste in music and listen to hardcore, uprisin' and TFI
An example is anyone from liverpool! because thy're mint!
And they are chavs.

A word used by snobs of the middle to upper-class to look down their noses at people raised in different culture than they were. They like to pretend the term is demeaning only to said "chav's" behavior and define the word as being specific to anyone who fits certain stereotypes of lower-class people. This way they don't have to admit what the word really is, blatant classism.
Snob: "Let's go, I don't want to hang around all these stupid chavs."

Poor person: "Thanks for leaving, because we don't want a spoiled, arrogant arsehole here."

Pejorative term, typically employed by timid middle-class teens to describe their poorer, more aggressive working-class brethren.

Its use often reflects both a fear of its target and a deeply unpleasant sense of social superiority. Parallel fears of relative poverty can be found throughout history, from worries about Victorian street urchins to contempt for medieval peasants.

Its users arguably deserve every bit of grief they get from those they describe as such.
"We'd better go round the other way - there's a load of chavs stood outside the offie."
