That guy at the show who shouts "Slayer" repeatedly, holds a beer in one hand in the pit, and takes off his shirt fifteen minutes into the first band's set.

Rocker, Stoner, F-dude or F-chick type.

Ok, Come on guys we all know the "Germanic Mercenary Fighters" definition but this is URBAN-DICTIONARY not Websters history class! If you don't know the Urban Meaning then leave it to the professionals.

This term was widely used during the 80s to denote a white-trash stoners or rockers and yes most of them did have dime-bags, mullets and AC-DC Tee-Shirts!

They typically listened to AC-DC, Van Halen, Bon Jovi and Early Metalica.
Dude! did you see all the hessians in the park playing Hackysack?

I saw a hessian with the sweetest Knee-High Moccasins. I need to get a pair of those babies.

Hessians were a counter culture movement in the 90's. A typical Hessian would have long hair, and wear either jeans that had holes, or pants that were made into shorts with a pair of scissors, and they would fray at the bottom. Hessians were the first to popularize cargo shorts. They would also wear boots, hemp and sea shell necklaces. They would put lots of stickers on their guitars, use duct tape on drum sticks, etc. Hessians were about partying and having a good time.
Wayne's World is about the Hessian rocker culture.
