Greebo: from my experience greebo's are a usually friendly people, wearing an assortment of black clothing, often being mixed up with goths
and metal heads
but lacking in the metalhead brashness and the goths usual shy personality. Wearing an assortment of accessories such as metal chains, baggy black jeans usually from "soho" shops, occasional tattoos resembling things associated with death, grim occasions, morbid characters etc, spiky wrist bands and occasionally metal rings and with black or dark hair, Greebos also have the stereotype of having greasy or unwashed hair, coinciding with the theory that they do not wash. They also wear dull coloured clothes whilst lacking any vibrance.
Many of the greebos i have met have been clean and well mannered, yet i would have to admit that most are unhygenic and lacking in any self respect for cleanliness.Although with any social "group" i try to keep an open mind, Greebos dissapoint me in their many links to the scene
groups. Casual sex and complete disregard for partners and proper relationship seem to end up with most greebos becoming depressive and obsessive, possibly because of their ways they became greebos or because of the like minded people they surround themselves with.
Greebos seem to listen to all sorts of Rock
music, mainly heavy metal
metal and death metal
but also emo
music and pop
emo. This means bands such as My Chemical Romance, Avenged Sevenfold, Trivium and Arch Enemy but they seem to branching out into bands such as Enter Shikari with the blend of trance
. Music is a main interest with Greebos, and defines them,as with most other social groups. Concert going and hanging around in usual surrounding such as parks,town statues and landmarks listening to music on loud stereos is a common theme in greebo life also.
Some greebos associate themselves with emos, punks and some skaters, forming an alliance and socialising through their interests, eg music, sex and hobbies, such as skating, circus activities and poetry.
Greebos are also associated with self harm, and as i mentioned before depression, another key link to "emos".
On the whole, Greebos are a caring, friendly group, creative and well meaning, yet lacking in much moral fibre and standards, in respect to relationships they appear whoreish and thoughtless.
"hey look, some greebos, be careful cos theyre a little dirty and slightly imposing but they seem to have written a mildly entertainin yet depressing song."
Noun : refers to people who listen to a range of music from punk to metal. It was once common to see greebos wearing blue jeans black hoodies and to have a metal chain hanging from their pocket however this seemed to disappear after the ascent of the chav as many greebos descended into chavdom. Greebo was once used as an insult by chavs and those with little understanding of the side darker of life however over time the insult has faded and it has just become accepted by people such as myself as a way of describing us. Greebo is somewhere between skater and goth.
chav: you fuckin' greebo
chav; *hangs head in shame*
A person who is different from others (others meaning: chavs, trendys, preps, geezers - whatever you want to call them) - 'greebo' is their word for skaters, rockers, moshers, emos, goths etc. they like some sort of rock/alternative music including emo, metal, goth, punk, etc.
they dress differently from them usually in loose/baggy trousers, hoodies and band shirts and military style clothing (e.g camoflage patterns) - or girls may wear net gloves and stripey, brightly coloured tops and accesories.
they are often pretty intelligent in one way or another and are often mistaken for trouble-makers. though they are smart enough to know that fighting wont solve anything and therefore arnt actually the ones who start things - they are provoked. when a chav (insert other names here)says something they can usually answer wittily or with the use of long words - this can often confuse stupid people. many dont actually have anything against chavs but dont like them because they make their lives a misery with their constant taunts. they like to keep themselves to themselves.
chavs often dont actually know what the word means
chav: "oi, greebo! what u fukin lookin at? eh? ya startin are ya!?"
'greebo': "oh i see, its now a crime for one to glance at another?"
chav: "oooo shes tryin to be cleva wid us!"
'greebo': "correction - i wasnt 'trying'" *walks off*
A term to categorise a person who likes hard rock/metal music. Wears Baggy trousers/jeans and a shirt emblazened with a band's name or logo. Generally hated by chavs for no apparant reason. Some greebo's may like some rap or hip-hop music, but usually a minority. They DO NOT hug trees (that's hippies). Contarst to belief, many do not self-harm or say they do. They are not depressed. I am a greebo, and in no way am i depressed, im a very happy person.
Chav 1 - OMFGZ itz one of dem goffiks ova der init gazza.
Chav 2 - lets go kick im in for being alive and not likin rap or any other mind numingly repetative music
Greebo - okay then *continues to walk by, minding own business*
Chav 1 - yer walk away u fukin pussy fukin goffik devil init
*4 greebos walking down a street, a chav cycles past, stares gormlessly at the 4 greebo's. the 4 stare back. Chav cycles further down the street. 5 seconds pass and the chav says "yer and wat ya fukin greebos?"
This concludes that chavs cannot stand up for themselves when alone
A greebo used to be a hells angel without a motor bike. Someone who didnt wash, long greesy hair and would always been seen in the same set of clothes. You can hear this word be chanted in high school grounds or out around your local town. It will be shouted with a short gr-and an expanteding e- eding with bow.
greeeeeebo. which then is usually follwed by
A greebo is a word commly used by chavs for people who arnt chav. It is mostly used for; emos,goths,scence kids and grungers. This word is used Beuacse they cant tell the diffrence and have nothing better to do with there sad little lives.
is commonly used as an insult by chavs
to offend anybody that has a disimilar dress sense to themselves. May be used with any of the prefixes 'fucking', 'dirty', or 'filthy' and if being adressed by a chav or higher than average intelligence you may even get a suffix, for example: 'cunt' 'twat' or 'bastard'. This could give any number of wonderful insults like 'filthy greebo cunt'.
Other stereotypes can be used such as emo
but essentially to the chav mind it is all the same.
I could define the stereotypical 'greebo', 'emo' or 'goth' but really theres no need because these are just stereotypes and if you ever find yourself called one when you wouldn't necessarily consider yourself to be in that sort of social group then it is most likely because you are wearing an item of clothing that is black or hangs loosely on your frame, or if you have hair that spans between lengths of partially covering your forehead, to entirely covering your face.
To those hollering these names at you, regardless of whether they insult you or merely make you laugh at your assailant's lack of intelligence, the content of your character does not matter, they will simpl...
Another name for rockers from the early to mid 90's (Nirvana era), particularly before the current emo and definately not goths. More influenced by the grungy/scruffy look, torn jeans, band t-shirt etc and followed by the skate era. Nerdy tendancies and not driven by popularity. Basically the anti-trendies. Dont get them as much now. The kids from that era will be in their late 20's to late 30's now and probably have grown up. Tended to not wash very often (clothes or themselves)
Kurt Cobain was the king of greebos
There are many definitions of greebo, I will run through all of them, I am not saying which ones are nessesarily right or wrong, thats for you too decide:
Greebo's are into any style of music from rock 'n' roll to metal to indie. They are generally found in Cardiff, Leeds and St Albans. The term greebo is used all over to describe anyone from an emo to a goth to an indie kid. By what I've heard from most people, they dont exist in Ireland or Scotland, only in England and Wales. Please correct me if I'm wrong.
The term 'Greebo' originally stood for 'Greasy Boy' as greebo's used to be associated with not washing there hair often. Greebos generally have long, unbrushed hair which is un-dyed and un-gelled.
Greebo boys wear baggy clothes such as jeans and combat trousers. Sometimes a checkered or studded belt is added. A 'Greebo Chain' is the most recognisable thing about a greebo. A Greebo Chain is a chain worn from one belt loop on the side of a pair of jeans to another belt loop. It is let too hang down as low as possible. These are often used to keep there wallets being stolen by Chavs by attatching it too the wallet. A skate brand t-shirt - baggy - and any shoes from skate shoes to nike too DM boots. Sometimes beanie hat too.
True greebo girls dress similarly too the boys. They wear baggy jeans and similar shoes. Girls often wear Vans shoes, not the slip ons on skate shoes, just the normal trainers. They wear boys t-shirts because they are more baggy.
