A scourge which is arriving, in Britain anyway, not sure about other places...

Trendies are, on the surface, the "cool" people in their 20's, your stereotypical student, clean, almost "grown up" looking youths.

However in reality most are incredibly conceited, IMMATURE, arrogant, personality devoid, and nasty people, who are ridiculously cold to "ousiders".

With music and fashion they are infinitely malleable. They positively lap up the music MTV and NME Magazine dictates to them to like, however unlike the mallcore crowd, they do this activity shamelessly, and in the case of fashion, they wear what ghastly womens magazines/"lads mags" say is "hot" or simply what celebs (celebrities) like to wear, the latter are worshipped, especially if they tie-in with sport or the most popular television shows, the trendy will regurgitate the stupidest catchphrase from the stupidest show ad nauseum, until it's uncool to do so of course...

Quite possibly the most narrow minded group of people, and absolutely adamant about not letting others into their circles of friends, they'd rather be seen dead than seen being friends with someone with an "uncool" haircut, unless you match them exactly, trying to start a convo with one will be met with silence, blatent ignoring. This is contrasting to the crowd of trendies, which are, in most cases, as rowdy as they come. Although they rarely resort to physical violence the trendy has nothing but contempt for anyone out of the "norm", shouts to strangers who look different will usually be hilariously innaccurate, for example, calling people who wear heavy metal shirts, "goths".

A trendy is a walking set of contradicting philosophies which have been melded together by the media, the biggest contradiction of them all is thinking they are incredibly urbane and "grown up" when in fact they listen to pop music aimed at teenyboppers and, even worse, holding onto this attitude of "we are the cool kids and you are all sad geeks" into ages as ridiculous as their late 20's, something that most people outgrew before reaching teenagehood.

Everything which the masses like becomes part of every trendies outlook and philosophy, a trait they share with the poser, only instead of trying to get into a local clique or copying an idol they wish to be what they are dictated to be, along with the ever present arrogant-obnoxious personality, as someone said, they are quite possibly the shallowest herd there is, if it became "cool" to wear shit-streaked underpants on our head, the trendy would do this without even thinking about it.
Metalhead is 5 years or so younger than Trendy:

Trendy: Metal all sounds the same! I listen to decent bands like The Arctic Monkeys, The Fratellis...
Metalhead: No offence dude but I think that about the sort of bands you listen to, maybe I don't have an ear for that type of music, fair enough, I just know that metal like Korpiklaani and Freedom Call sound slightly different from TestAmenT and Razor to me...
Trendy: Whatever, you listen to your shitty shouting satan music then, the only good metal is System of a down.
Metalhead: They're ok, but they aren't metal.
Trendy: LOLOLOLOL!1 I bet <bands most well known song> is heavier than any of your... TestAmenT whatever... hahaha
*Trendy walks away*
Metalhead: *to self trying not to laugh* God... Trendies...

Trendy Girl: You should wear this.
Non-Trendy Guy: Why?
Trendy Girl: Because it would look hot.
Non-Trendy Guy: So, I should wear clothes I personally HATE, simply to be attractive to the opposite sex? How stupid...
*Trendy Girl tries to process the fact people can wear clothes THEY want to, fails, and walks off, her natural trendy instinct of getting away from the "loser" kicking in*

Trendy: Look at that idiot, his shirt looks so gay, who the fuck would wear a pink shirt?
*fast forward to when they are popular*
Trendy: *wearing a pink shirt like everyone else* Look at my shirt, it's "sick"... Pretty cool how I started the whole wearing pink thing around here.
*an arguement starts over who started it, the person they took the piss out of before would be conviniently forgotton. Also goes for bands they took the piss out of when not popular.(Trendies are the inheriters of Orwell's Doublethink)*

^ Above are practically real examples, sadly.

pl: trendies

Someone who follows the majority; in most cases this is the "kev". The terms are interchangeable, but trendies are known to be able to change with the times, where as kevs tend to stick with being sad at one thing.

The Scum of humanity and civilisation, a pandemic which has hit New Zealand like a firestorm fuelled by 200km/h winds.

They listen to what the mainstream media and radio dictates AKA Top 40 pop music "cos everybody else does", watch whatever TV2 is showing (reality TV, Shortland St etc.).

They dress in whatever is fashionable at the moment - the typical female trendy wears a dress which the hemline is 1 inch away from her pussy typically with knee high boots making her look like the slutbag she is, she likes to show cleavage and show off her $600 sunglasses and $800 handbag she got from pagani or Glasson's. The male sports a beard, flannel shirt and jeans and shops at hallensteins.

The trendy NEVER Gets harassed by the police. They are NEVER harassed by the authorities or stopped by police - as long as they are white and dressed like the typical slutbag/homo trendy. In fact they are agents of "the man" in an deliberate attempt to pick on metallers/grungies/hippies/stoners/druggies/bogans/Goths/occultists/geeks and other outsiders and make these individualist look bad

Bottom line is these people need to be exterminated
Jenna Jones and Benny Brown are both Trendy lil cunts, when they where pissed as a chook down Courtney place last Saturday night and benny challenging non-trendy's to a fight, yet the cops never done anything about them, yet stoner longhaired brad bogan minding his own beeswax was arrested on the false pretence that he had LSD on him..the cops didn't like the look of him yet the trendy where abusing passers-by

Trendys - originating from the word "trend". "Trendys" think that:
1)They are super cool
2)Everyone loves them
3)They are gorgeous
They usually wear a think layer of make-up and fake breasts.
The lesser trendys are also associated with townies
Often use "ned" like words, see also neds
trendy "check my titties.... arent they pure bonnie like?"

ned "aye, theyr'e pure dead bonnie like, check that shilberto that just walked past..."

trendy "merh merh merh... BONNIE ONES!!"

Generally white,middle class British teenagers who are the suburban equivalent of townies!Only they pretend to be so 'cool' and 'retro'.The boys wear stupid jeans,t-shirts and style their hair like a mullet or with loads of hightlights.The whores(I mean girls) are similar,and they too use so much fucking highlights.

They only follow mainstream crap(eg read FHM,eat/drink at Starbucks,listen to the Darkness,etc).
Ooh that's so cool and trendy.We're fucking conformist cunts but we don't even know it!

Odd people who need to wear moronic labels in order to feel special
eg: FCUK. I think they feel that this defines their personality in some way.
Unfortunately, the great majority lack a personality.
Trendy walks past wearing label and attempts to subliminally scream "I AM SPECIAL!"
Its alright. They are ALL "special"

someone who persists in following the present fashion also known as sheep. many are gay and have no friends. a trendy is easy to spot as they have blue faces cos thier tight trousers stop them from breathing and thier turn ups are so huge you can do your washing in them. trendies or townies commonly hang around in shops like the body shop and have a queer laugh like uh huh huh huhuhuhuhuuhugh.
trendies are unmissable. they all dress the same and the odds are low that you wont see at least 5 thousand on your way home
