At first a "greb" seems to be the complete opposite of a townie and a lot of them are. Though be careful because on occasion some mistake being "open minded and indiviual" for being complete d**kh**ds and acting exactly like they're arch enemy the townie. Examples of what to watch out for are
Ex 1
Greb 1: "Hey wanna go on a townie hunt?"
Greb 2: "Yeah lets kick their butts!"

Ex 2
"Hey see that window over there? Lets see if we can break it with these stones!"

Ex 3
Greb 1: "Hey look! a dead bird/squirrel!"
Greb 2: "Cool! Lets leave it on that car bonnet!"
Greb 3: "No lets put it in a bag and take it school! We can scare the townies with it and make them think we're disgusting sick minded idiots and beat us up!"

A word for someone who is just not quite there, or doing something stupid, or just it can just be used to insult somebody.

Originated around Summer 08.
Person 1 - Would you look at that, Mark's got his shirt on back to front again.
Person 2 - What a greb.

OR along the lines of ''What you looking at, you little greb!''

A youth sub-culture that is a little bit shit, really.

And in all honestly, around 50-60% do generally have very greasy hair and grotesque faces.

To conclude, the people that join this sub-culture are almost exclusively either children that were bullied and could only find a friend in the fellow bullied, or ugly girls that can only have sexual intercourse with a bullied child.
"we are random and individual"

"let's post nasty things about our enemies, the chav / townie / rudeboi / whatever, that'll show em!"

Grebs generally wear tatty old baggy black or blue jeans, spikey necklaces and wristbans along with a nirvana or slipknot hoody. they all seem to think theyre being individual or different bye doin this, but all look the same, they think slipknot and cradle of filth are proper hardcore death metal, but have never even heard of good bands like the devil wears prada, drop dead gorgeous or the black dahlia murder.

they generally pride themselfs as being more intelligent and morally superior to chavs, but in reality are more or less the same, just with different taste in music and different clothes/hair. as they are just as narrow minded, which you will clearly see if you read alot of the other definitions of greb.
Greb 1 - oh my good, have you heard the new slipknot song, its soo heavy, i love it.
Greb 2 - i know, and the new cradle album is amazing, dani filth is sooooooo good.
Real Metalhead - haha look at those freakshows talking about ther shitty pretend metal, lets beat the shit outta them and proceed to the black dahlia murder gig.
Scen Kid - ok

to purposely swallow a nailgun for gambling purposes.
