A "raver" is one who goes to raves. Contrary to popular belief, there are many different types of ravers.

First there are Candy Ravers; these are the ones you see running around shouting things like "PLUR!" or "Want a hug/sucker/glowstick/massage?" They are identifiable by their brightly colored clothing (phat pants being a must...if they're made of fun fur, all the better), enough Candy (brightly colored bead bracelets)to sink the Titanic, oodles of children's toys, as well as a few glowsticks and pacifiers. Candy kids are known as the cutest/most annoying people you will ever meet. A lot of them are pretty fake - it's impossible to be that happy all the time. Candy Kids are also notorious for being users of the drug Ecstasy - this is not entirely accurate, but with the way they dress and act, its not hard to see why this is assumed.

Next we have the "Goth" ravers. They're quite easy to spot - they will be dressed in all black, preferably incorperating some fishnet, spikes, and buckles into their outfits. The more there are the better. They will not socialize outside of the group they came with, and they will NEVER under any circumstances dance. They're too goth for that - dancing equates to happiness and celebration, and that's just not cool.

Ginos and Ginas (also known as "hoochies"). These are those well-dressed, snooty people that really shouldn't even be at a rave. The only reason they're at the party is to pick up on some 15 year old e-tard. Well, maybe not, but they certainly are only at the party to get a piece of ass. They will be dressed in whatever is "trendy" and do not know how to dance.

Next are junglists. Junglists are often viewed as being "agro". They listen primarily to Jungle/DnB music, and are partial to camo, hoodies, and clothing in dark colors. Popular junglist hairstyles are dreads (m+f), short hair (m+f), or short with two long bits in the front (f). Quite a few junglists are ex-candy ravers. They may also be "old-skool" or "jaded".

Old-skool and jaded pretty much fall into the same category. Old-skoolers are ravers who have been in the scene since "way back in the day". No matter how good the party is, the music/DJs/parties/drugs/people/anything else about the scene was WAY better when they first started raving. A jaded raver is not nessicarily old skool, but shares the same views as the old skooler.

And even still there are many ravers that do not fall into any of these categories. So...perhaps a raver is simply one who goes to parties to dance the night away, and loves the music. Interesting concept, hey?

And we all thought it was about the drugs. *sarcasm*
Rave is no longer a dirty 4-letter word. It's okay to be a raver. :)

Many emo kids, goths, ravers, furry and anime fans, gays, and pretty much anyone else who is different are targeted fairly often for mockery by Something Awful and Portal Of Evil crowd.

Wouldn't it be funny if the emo kids, goths, ravers, furry and anime fans, gays and anyone else these guys targeted all joined forces and mocked them back?

Nah. That wouldn't be nice. It would be funny, though.
I'm not a raver, but I think they're cute. Life would be pretty boring if everyone were the same.

Crazy Annie Tranny is the only raver I know and love!

A label slapped on anyone bearing the trademark UFO pants, kandy jewelry, Visors, Glowstrings/Sticks/Ect, Multi-colored hair, Funny backpacks and listens to the genre formally known as rave music.

The term has lost its meaning seeing as the culture has died out due to government meddling. Anyone who still calls themself a raver is very un-hip and is looked at as a poser for trying to ressurect the term.

You look at someone who calls themself a "Raver" the same way you would someone who calls themself a "Disco Dancer"

-- At a modern club somewhere in the world --

clubber 1- " Oh god, look at that loser raving with glowsticks"
clubber 2- " He thinks hes a raver, what a poser, he's 10 years too late "

can be a person who enjoys going to underground parties. often ravers like to put drugs into their systems because the high of life is not good enough. this also results in wearing the most hideous clothing such as huuuge pants, backwards/upside down visors, pacifiers, and skin tight shirts. ravers have an obsession with glowsticks and they resemble zombies.
"did you see that lifeless, baggy-pant wearing, pacifier sucking drug addict?"
"yea, jane is a raver"

Lame kids who make Electronic music seem only for idiots and druggies. They often use E, dress in bright colors and act brainless. Some are just Preppies that got tired of Pop music.
See Anti Raver songs by Leatherstrip and KOMPRESSOR.

A skinny white pre pubecent teenager from the suburbs who says gay shit like "pop" (in reference to ecstasy), and listens to complete shit music, if it can really be called music. And by going to raves this gay white kid can escape his daily trauma that consists of his mother rediculing him for gelling his hair, and looking like a complete fagget. The so called "Raver" is really just a pussy who wishes he / she could be 'cool' in main stream society.

1) You are not cool for doing ecstacy, dont call it E or x, like a faggot.
2) Jumping around on drugs in a garbage hole does not make you cool.
3) You have a small penis
4) You're parents are ashamed of you
5) you drive a shitty car
Raver #1: I look so good
Raver #2: i hate myself
