1. Any person who conforms to a fashion statement rather than an ideal or way of life. Most American universities, colleges and secondary schools keep a steady population of poseurs, usually in art classes and libraries. The poser is known to congregate in small groups, usually of their own ilk, or with real punkers or metalheads in an attempt to fit in. The telltale sign of a poseur is their lack of knowledge of music, art and the culture they are pretending to portray. As an example, the roots of the punk rock movement was based more on all out rebellion and an attitude going against the social status quo and morays. In contrast, the poseur holds none of these values, yet will pretend to.
"My advanced ceramics class is chock full of hipster poser fucks. All they do flip their scarves around and talk about going to shows and making out and doing their hair."

"Did you see those two hardcore guys beat the snot out of that poser guy after the show?"
"Yeah, they broke his nose and stole his scarf"
"Serves him right for wearing a scarf in the summer"

1.Someone who tries to be popular by looking or acting like someone else. Sometimes, NOOBS are also called posers when they act like other people in the group without a hint of autheniticy. Happens in most common style groups like Goth, Punk, Wigger (Chav), and most infamously, Prep and Pop culture.

2. A character, show, or actor that doesn't have a clue of being individually styled.
Johnny is still a poser to the prep kids after he tried to wear the same brands as every one else.

Hot Topic was one of the most feared poser-stores to both true Punks and Goths alike.

Someone who pretends to be what they aren't to get what they want. Usually, they prefer to back stab friends and then say that that person is a poser when in fact, they themselves are a poser.
Allison: You died your hair red to look like someone from a book!
Valerie: *cough* First, her hair is brown. Second, you died your hair the same color right after I did!
Allison: Like whatever poser. *snap fingers* *lots of girls who look the same pop-up* Like, we're leaving.
Valerie: Good luck with that.

Someone who spends all or most of their time trying to find out whats "cool" or "in". Once they know what is "in" they do it no matter what their personal veiws on it are. Posers usually pose off of what is on MTV or VH1 or their local "hot" radio station, because they think they will be accepted for it. Normally posers also take whatever they are posing off of to an abnormal and unhealthy extreme. Posers change their style to fit what's "cool". They are usually the losers who have a myspace and comment the people who origionally wore the style they pose off of saying "I LOVE YOU SOOO MUCH!!<33" even though they either don't know them, or the origional hates them. Posers often have "myspace pics" or "emo pics" on their myspace. They are often always hated by everyone else they know except their poser friends. Posers also sometimes write and/or talk in "internet lingo" while not on the internet. Most also over use the famous comeback of "your mom".

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.
