Will people please stop putting in definitions of otheralternative groups!?
A grunge would be one who, suprisingly, listens to "grunge." And not just Nirvana and Nickleback as someone asle pointed out but a whole range both new and old.
I kinow only a few "grungers" and these are the only TRUELY 'unique' alternative group. They have no sense of fashion what-so-ever and really could not give a shit! They don't just pretend it oh-no they truelly could not give a toss!
I doubt very much "grungers" listen to Metallica! and although Punk can be closely linked to Grunge (attitude wise) NoFx is possibly not a "grungers" faviourite band

Person 2: "Nope it's just Daz, pretty cool huh?"
Person 3: "Yeah"

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."

Grungers do care about their looks, whaterver they say, they follow a style, and the style is to apparently not care. They do, but they are much better than chavs/townies/rudeboys etc. Because I have never been beaten up by a gorup of them. I am more grunge than whatever else, but I think you guys all do secretly care because you spent long enough saying you dont on here.

A label given by others for those who dislike conformation in major brand names or trends, have any of their own opinions, listen to music they want to listen to rather than what they are TOLD to and dislike cutting their hair and wearing the same tracksuits or t-shirts as everyone else so that noone can see the individuality they lack the confidence to express just in case it is ridiculed or disregarded by the 'cool' kids.
The term grunger is also used as an insult by those known as townies by many (i prefer not to use labels where possible, but find myself having to much of the time).
from my experience, they are all different(apart from the people who shop at tammy and pretend theyre depressed so they look cool, some people really are depressed, stop hogging the limelight)
btw. shame on the person who spelt Kurt Cobain wrong

Variations: Grungie

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
