Ahh the grebo, thinks they are better then everyone else will sit on ChavScum website all day cussing and dishing people who they damm well wouldn't say jack to their faces in the streets. Look down on people who live in Council Houses, they smell wear cheap clothes listen to outdated cheap music, and just generally think they are high and mighty better then everyone else. When really they are the lower people who no one likes and they are Jelous of people who go out have fun, each Friday they will team up with their pals on ChavScum this consist of Goths, Emos, Metal Heads, and any other subculture what slits their wrists when they are down or get things chucked at them on the Bus on their way home from where ever the infested-rats have been. Cause they are not accepted simple as, the only people who will thumb me down on this definition is grebos them selfs.

West Midlands slang word for rockers, bikers, greasers etc. In the late 1980s it was used by the UK music press to refer to a specific scene centered around the bands Pop Will Eat Itself and Crazyhead. The term never found favour with readers of 'the inkies' (Sounds, Melody Maker and the still extant NME) and was soon dropped. Now often used in predominantly working-class areas of the midlands and the north to mean someone who listens to rock-derived music and/or dresses in a manner that suggests they affiliate themselves with rock music of some kind.
Some grebo passed with Sabbath playing on his stereo.
The Poppies are at no. 17? God, a grebo band in the charts!
They're playing nu-metal now, bloody grebos!

A grebo is a commonly used term for people who follow an 'anti-pop' culture. The grebo's archenemy is the townie; grebos generally prefer to wear baggy, darker clothing as well as simple metal jewelry to reflect their darker, anti-pop lifestyle. Most grebos will listen to Slipknot or any other number of popular nümetal bands such as Disturbed.

The contradiction of the Grebo is that through their anti-pop mantra they have effectively created a subculture much like the one that they have rebelled against; it is one that exists to defy the opposite of what pop culture is, and still has its own subcultural standards in wardrobe, music, speech, etc., making the Grebo subculture somewhat pretentious, yet more open to social outcasts or socially unaccepted / otherwise politically incorrect schools of thought or action.
Look at those Grebos, listening to Slipknot. Don't they see that through their rebellion they have built nothing much greater than the culture they have rebelled against?

I myself was classed as a a GREBO in the late 70's onwards (even more so when another UK youth sub-culture The MOD'S movement began (again) who hated Rockers/Bikers).
My favorite bands of the time included Judas Priest, Black Sabbath, Led Zeppelin etc.
Long hair, leather jackets and raggy jeans (biker look) being the uniform of the day.
I understood that the term GREBO was a derogative name (abbreviation of- GREASE BOY, meaning dirty),given by so called straight boring idiots with no sense of musical taste and thought processes!
This term derived from the old Rock and Roll Teddy Boy bikers (GREASERS-meaning covered in bike oil and/or Brylcreamed hairstyle!).
In the late 80's early 90's- UK Midlands Bands took up the GREBO banner- bands such as- POP WILL EAT ITSELF, GAYE BYKERS ON ACID, CRAZYHEAD, THE BOMB PARTY,BOMB DISNEYLAND, BOMB EVERYTHING.
Motorhead- classic original GREBO band.
