look up any word, like the eiffel tower:
 
118.
One of the most overused, meaningless, and shittiest words used in our society today. Here are the posers:
1: Someone who tries to be something they're not. Ex. A goth who pretends to be a punk or vice-versa.
2: A shitty label for a band such as Good Charlotte. People who use this word on "poser-punk" bands have no idea that they are not posers, and even if they were, who cares? Being a poser has nothing to do with music. Real posers are singers/bands that claims to be something else.
3: A puzzling question.
poser = Avril Lavigne, Hilary Duff, Bowling for Soup

not a poser = Blink-182, Good Charlotte, Simple Plan

I listen to and enjoy ALL of the bands I just mentioned. Even the posers.

2.
Any one who does not follow his/her own ideas of what he/she likes. Following no one set norm makes you real and following no one set norm makes you poser. Poser is governed not by the clothes, music, or makeup you wear, but rather by the state of your mind and the conformity to your own beliefs.
Posers conform to the beliefs of others.

Justin was such a poser-goth; sure, he comes to school in all black, but he doesn't even know who Edgar Allen Poe is.

4.
a person - usually in middle or high school, who is insecure about him/herself and trys very hard not to be a "conformist" or a "prep," by doing things like: purchasing a skateboard or guitar, purchasing a great deal of clothing and accessories from hot topic, and listening to pop-punk bands such as simple plan, yellowcard, etc. usually, this supposedly "nonconformist" behavior just backfires on him/her, because now he/she is still conforming, just to a different group of people. so the moral of the story is to be yourself.
some people are posers.

A poser is someone who tries hard to be something they arent. Usually, posers call other people posers because they are jealous that the person they called a poser is more skater/stoner/goth/punk/rocker/grunge/etc. than they will ever be.
