Australian young boys that travel normally in packs. They always wear sport brands such as Nautica, Addidas, Puma.. etc and have the baseball caps done up tight and tilted up at the front. However the most prominent feature is their Rat tails. Usually plaited at the back of their head or the side.

They have prominent accents (differnt from normal aussies) like:
"Yeeeah Bruuuh!" (with a horrible nasal voice) and smoke dorries ("rollies" which are roll it yourself ciggarettes), particularly WhiteOx.

They speak in pig latin and their greeting call is:
“Eshayzz Bruhh!” Meaning “Hello, How are you?”

They graffiti ("tag" or "graph") They normally have a ridiculus four letter word, normally an odd collection of letters to avoid disputes with other “lads” over the same “tag”. They also tag their “CREW” names, which is normally a three letter representation of a three worded crew. Eg: “HSL” would stand for “Harsh Sydney Lads”. Their crew is a member of trusted friends that go out together and “graph up” places illegally and run from the cops. They also make illegal videos and sell them through secret illegal blackmarket shops normally registered as selling something else.

They drink Goon (cheap wine) and normally have a "Goon Sack" wine in the silver bag that is normally inside a box of wine.

Their preferred type of music is hard-core techno. Think Dj Neophyte and Dj Caffeine. They have a special type of dance that goes with it called:

1) Gabber
2) Jumpstyle

Gabber, is usually done by moving the feet back wards in a moon-walk like fashion while simulating punching the ground infront of you alternately with their hands. They will usually nod their heads in time with the beat, trying to be hardcore.

Jumpstyle, is usually done by jumping up and down alternately twisting and kicking in different directions.

A female version is called a "LASS"
Person #1: Hello

Lad #1: Eshayz Bruh!

Person #1: What did you do last night?

Lad #1: Gone out for a ain-pay bruh! graphed up tha traino at rivo bruh! Got on the goon sack to, fuckin' yeeeea bruh!

TRANSLATION: "I went out graffitying a trainstation at Riverstone. I also got pissed on cheap wine. Yes, brother."

Lads are of various age usually male but also females, who tend to hang around large shoppings centres or train stations in Sydney. More commonly could be described as the Australian version of British chav.

They appear to be destinctly defined wearing:
- White Nautica Cap
- Striped Polo Shirt (Nautica etc)
- Sport Shorts (Nautica)

Basically giving brands Nautica and Canterbury a bad name for delinquent wearers. They appear to be loud and confronting in large groups of followers who usually range from 10 - 20 +, and appear to have a bogan like appearance. Although they try to be tough, they are actually pansies at heart.

Can be described as "Eshay Lads" also, and seen inhabiting areas such as Train Stations,Bus Shelters,Taxi Ranks,Outside Major Shopping Centres and Street Corners.

Mostly found in Sydney's West (Penrith,Parramatta)
and can be found in a range of nationalities.
"Oh dear he's dressed like a Lad!"
"He thinks he's so cool with his Nautica and delinquent friends"

A phrase overused by middle/upper class Jack Willis wearing twats conveying their faux-machismo, those who like any music that is played in Yates or other shitty mainstream clubs whilst trying to retain credibility by liking Indie such Oasis and The Stone Roses...because those bands are popular amongst football fans, and what kind of "lad" wouldn't want to fit in with the football crowd. Act like they're salt of the earth when they're actually at Uni, courtesy of mummy and daddy and their money. Usually seen chatting up a vapid airhead who dresses like a supermodel in a put on regional accent (they never forget to use as much regional slang as they can!), who is drawn in by his "charms" because she is so void of personality. Usually thinks Inbetweeners is cutting edge TV, sees Cook from Skins as a role model and is more interested in Pete Doherty's tabloid habits than his actual music which they haven't actually heard, despite professing their love for The Libertines. Pinnacle of annoying loudmouth, they can usually be seen outside a takeaway at 3AM bellowing at each other because it's "banter", a word they overuse to the point of deserving to be punched.
"I had a well mental night last night lad! I went to Oceana with the lads and did 26 shots! I was hanging! Then I bumped into this Southern pansy who didn't like the checkered shirt I was wearing, so I said 'get t'fuck, laddeh' and I think he was intimidated by my accent cos I'm a proper Northerner, but it was just a bit of banter! Then I met this bird - see how I use the word 'bird'? Cos I'm a proper lad and did I mention how I'm from up North too? Anyway she looked like Amy Childs but fitter and with bigger tits! BANTER! She says that she loves my woman's clothes that I'm always wearing, which I bought from Topman. Anyway, I left with the lads and bought some chips, but then we had some well epic banter by throwing them at each other! Top night lads! Mental! Now I have to phone mummy for some money as I spent all my student loan at Topman"

- Lad(s) is a term used to describe a male or males of varying age.

Depending on it's grammatical useage, for example when the term is used in it's plural form it may be used refer to group of males from any age group. Whereas when it is used in it's nounal form it is commonly used to refer to a young male. The reasoning for this is that males of a younger age may be too young (less than 10 years old) and males of an older age (25 years and older) may be too old to be referred to as just being a "lad" this is where lad prefixes come into use, for example that old lad or that young lad.

The use of these prefixes distinguishes the type of 'lad' which the speaker may be referring to, thus diminishing any ambiguities in the saying.

The origions of the creation of the term "lad" are unknown, but it is a word that has been used for centuries in and around the United Kingdom and many of it's old colonies i.e. Australia. The word itself is commonly used in the northern regions of England. It is uncommon to hear the term used in the southern regions.

The term "lad" is a very versatile saying and may be used in many ways e.g. casually, seriously, jovially and affectionately. In the correct cirumstances it can be used to convey a range of emotions, for example "Hurry up, Lad" in this case the addition of lad emphasises that the individual that it is being aimed at must make haste, "How are you, Lad" in this case the addition of lad personalises the greeting thus making it more intimate giving the sense of direct affection from one individual to another.

Many urban philosophers have taken the word lad and created altogether new terms while keeping the original meaning intact. Putting a new spin on the word, giving it vitality and taking away the belief that the word lad is only used by the older generations, for example;

- Ladavon
- Ladavooch
- Ladula
- Laddington
- Ladsmith
- Laddock
- Laddie etc.

The word lad has also been binded with suffixes to create terms which refer to those of which a lad(s) may take part in, for example "Laddish behaviour" refering to the generally unsavoury acts of a lad(s), but it is known to refer to any act or acts performed by a lad or set of lads. While the term "Laddish" does contain a suffix it is known to be used in the same sense as the term lad or any other counterparts of the term.
"Medical: I heard there was some laddish behaviour last night at the 'cock"

"Fadi: Brap brap, ladavooch"

"G: You're a filthy blood-sucking leech, lad!"

"Swann: I'm just going to drop the kids off at the pool, lad"
