Broadly denotes several divergent subcultures, most highly concentrated in college dormitories (or fraternities), indie rock concerts, and fixed gear bicycles. Bred out an almost brazen sense of immunity and entitlement, middle trash people sometimes joke that they live in a dirty house, binge drink and gorge on free samples because they are starving college students
. This is usually stated with a smug irony, since their education is often well financed by parents or scholarships.
This excuse, or others that justify behavior that they would find reprehensible in those who didn't attend college or voted republican, is actually only invoked to defend a very small amount of middle trash behavior. This occurs because a surprising volume of wasteful fads, terrible bands, classist vitriol or noxious political doublespeak are integral to a proud self-image, often as someone outside the mainstream
or simply smarter, more interesting and better than other people.
Finally, middle trash can also describe various exploitative and anti-nuanced appropriations, such as ironically flashing gang signs or wearing a kimono.
I went away for a week and the house reeks of garbage. My roommates are total middle-trash.
My friend just bought five hundred dollar wheels to go on his middle trash fixed gear.
I just didn't like that the Chappelle's show was so popular with the Middle Trash.
