a grunger at least on the surface is somebody who minds their own business smokes their own weed/hash and is fairly happy until cries of greebo or 'grunger boi' by the local burberry-wearing faschists upset everything. this however does not define grunge, (nor indeed does kurt cobain) these chavs are 'but fleas annoying a glorious tiger'.
(also anyone who wishes to rush to the defense of these people, remember two things 1: THEY started the labelling of people based upon appearance or preferred music and 2: they will thank you for defending them buy spitting in your face and robbing you).
while the word grunger did originate from the US grunge music scene (Nirvana, Smashing Pumpkins, Foo Fighters etc.) the 'subculture' HAS moved on, many grungers could be described as a scruffy golden-virginia-smoking mixture of many other alternitive groups.
Many grungers do scare pensioners with their visual offensiveness but this is usually purely unintentional (also said pensioners should be more scared of the group of sportswear coated yobs waiting around every corner for someone to mug so they can get a 'MaccyDeees bruv innit').
As a grunger myself i am the first to admit we care little for appearances, especially our own, but this may not be in the way you think. first of all clothes are probably bottom of a typical grunger's shopping list, also a strong anti-capitalist streak steers grungers away from the brand name crap with ugly logos slapped on the front (or anywhere really). This leads to a sort of dark hippie/goth/indy/metalhead look; long (not necessarily greasy) hair, torn baggy jeans, often tattered metal band t-shirts, beanie hats, khaki and really worn skate shoes.
Finally as we reach the end of this loooooooong definition i must point out that grungers can skate, listen to whatever music they want and don't have to be in a band or even play an instrument because THAT is what grunge is about freedom from opression inflicted upon society by brain dead nazi-fucks. We don't even really need to define grunge (even though i have spent half an hour doing just that), 'grunge' is what the individual grunger wants it to be.
and in the words of violent J; fuck you if you don't like it rude boy

A group of people who do exactly what they claim not to. They go around saying - "We're grungers, we don't follow anybody's fashion rules - we wear what we want" (or something similar) And then they go and spend all their money on baggy trousers and boxes of safety pins in order to look exactly the same as their grungie companions. Then they go and make fun of the people who do exactly the same as them but with tight trousers and gold earrings.
(The only grungers who this does not apply to are the ones who don't go around saying "I'm a grunger".)
Grunger - "Shit! I've run out of safety-pin-money!"
Towny - "If you stop making fun of me I'll lend you some of my gold-earring-money"

The term grunger came about from the Seattle led grunge scence and was applied to a person who was involved in said scence, the term is now applied to many teens who listen to a selection of bands which a prdomantly Metal/Rock/Punk who arn't into Heavy Metal/Rock/the co;our black enough to be goths but who dispise garage and their mortal enemies "Townies". Also to be a modern "Grunger" one needs to believe that Nirvana were the best band ever and that Kurt Cobain is god insted of the reality that they were a good band who are hevily overrated
Grunger 1: HAHAHA aren't Townies stupid
Grunger 2: Yes HAHAHA, Don't you think Nirvana are the most influential band ever
Grunger 1: Yes, now lets go and laugh at anyone who doesn't conform to our lifestyle
Grunger 2: Yes lets

A youth subculture at existed from the late 80's through the mid 90's. As the name suggests, the grungers all listened to grunge bands such as Nirvana, Hole or Alice in Chains and many of them adopted the fashion and ideology of the grunge bands. Some grungers also listened to bands and genres of music that influenced the Grunge movement, such as Noise rock, Hardcore punk, Alternative rock and Sludge metal. Following the downfall of the Grunge movement in the mid 90's, most grungers moved off into various subcultures, some became rivetheads, others started listening to Alternative metal, some turned to Indie rock, others went onto Pop punk, and the rest went onto cheesy commercial Post-grunge music.
"He's stuck in '92, he's a grunger."

"I used to be in a grunger in a grunge band, but I sold my soul and started a Post-grunge band, my name is David Grohl."
