one with disregard for all formal fashion and socially according notions. passive in attitude, grunge litterally meaning 'tramp like' therefore dress reflected this, thrift store teeshirts, ripped jeans , flanell shirts, doc martens, hi tops. smoking cigarettes, drug consumption , binge drinking, generally getting oblitterated
music: nirvana, alice in chains, soundgarden, pearl jam, mudhoney, screaming trees, (basically any seattle band that were signed to sub-pop records at the time)

Contradiction in itself. A continuous chain of conflicting statements and happenings. Allow me to elaborate:

"We do it to be unique"-Despite the relative fairness in the desire to achieve the aforementioned ideal, the figure stating that on average 25% of school pupils attending secondary schools are indeed "grungers" and furthermore that on average 96% of these individuals grow out of this state of being, indicates that this is merely a collective fad, and one that is hardly unique.

"Goths are peaceful-Chavs aren't"-Ah the old "west side story" bullcrap. Chavs vs Goths. Where is the peace in the lyrics "I smash my face into a mirror" "Lets all kill ourselves" and "My girlfriend dumped me so i slit my wrists". Furthermore confrontation of any sort lacks peace, and no one is whiter than white in almost all confrontation of the like.

"We don't care about how we look"- If such was the case, why go out of your way to look like a stereotypical "grunger". Can you be "grungers" and be allowed to wear a tracksuit? Or a Nike hat? Oh wait that would be "Chavvish" who are of course scum....we aren't hateful by the way..
To summarise-

Grunger+Chav=A load of bollocks Phase that adolescent teenagers appear to be conforming to in order to obtain friends within a certain crowd, thus saving them solidarity. The resolution? The whole fucking fad shit being ended....but I'm scum for suggesting such a thing...

Falls into two catergories:

1)the alternative. this one listens to music that townies do not listen to. have a genuine sense of what is good music and good style. shops in one legged jockey because of clothes that look good, fit well. still has some pride in appearance and washes hair more than once a week. dont white out after one spliff. will be friends with anyone.

2) the wannabe. listens to slipknot and thinks is great because you cant understand what they are saying. the heavier the drums the better, much like the townie affection for a heavy bass line. shops in one legged jockey because "everyone else does". determined to wash as litle as possible in order to maintain "individuality". smokes a cigarette and claims they are hallucinating. Hates all townies and discriminates against them as badly as they are discriminated against.

These are the less severe versions of goths, who are seen as self harming druggies who like nothing better than suicide and unhappiness.
Type 2) "I am a grunger because i cant possibly have any friends or shampoo at home. i must also try my hardest to be random and differnt from everyone else."

my definition is someone who likes "grunge" (which started out as a fusion of heavy metal and punk rock)music, and as a general rule wears baggy clothes and as people who seem to knw what their talking about pointed out, some "grunger" girls will dress in a more riot grrl style(riot grrl being a sorta political/feminist spin-off of grunge is my understanding),also,i could be called a grunger but me and my friends are some of the girliest girls i know!.although i have critisisms of townies/townie music, i dont see the point in pigeonholing a whole group(townie OR grunger)as i have townie friends who are just as nice as anyone else, as well as knowing some EVIL "grungers"(and some townie music isnt CRAP, i just dont like it)i think people do this to try and strengthen their own alliance to a group.but id like to point out im not convinced by all this "im just me,im above labels" stuff, it just seems pretty phoney and stuck up to me.thank you.pixie
"ooh theres a grunger, lets shout verbal abuse, we got nothin better to do innit"
"ooh im such a grunger, i wear black"
"ooh im so mature and superior since i grew out of my grunger phrase"

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 grunger is someone who feels more comfortable wearing baggy jeans and loose tops. They have individuality and have hobbies such as bmxing, skateboarding and rollerblading. They wear chains and listen to rock bands such as metallica and NOFX
