A generally non-offensive term used in some punk communities to describe a friend or aquaintance, possibly but not necessarily a traveler, staying in one's home without paying rent. A good scumbag often contributes (monetarily or with food, music, or company) to the house where they are staying and usually does not stay with the same people for an extended period of time.

Not to be confused with scumfucks (see also: oogles), who are scumbags that steal your money, smoke your cigarettes, drink your alcohol, and break bottles over heads fairly indiscriminately.

The dirt under the fingernails of progress as some may say. Scumbags, also known as scummies are immoral and have no sense of right or wrong in the world due to poor parenting.

Usually hanging out anywhere public, scumbags will always be smoking, or trying to find someone who can give them something to smoke.

Avoid scummies at all costs.
Scummie: Hey do you have a skeet?
