look up any word, like dirty sanchez:

Since punk began, a poser could be defined variously as somebody who thinks Avril Lavigne is "punk," goes to Warped Tour to see Yellowcard while ignoring The Damned, is straight-edge for all the wrong reasons, identifies as punk but is scared of the pit, listens to emo convinced that men with slicked-down bangs and lyrics about trivial high school crushes are huge emotional dramas, etc etc... While the term is useful in delineating false punks from those who truly make the effort to live a DIY lifestyle, ultimately, EVERYBODY is a poser, especially anyone who preaches tolerance while judging what's punk and what's not, makes arbitrary judgments based on a zine's recommendation, or god forbid, looks up punk terms online.

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.
