Grebs claim to be the individuals of society, and although they all dress fairly similarly, they are the minority, so I suppose they're right. Most grebs listen to rock or punk music. The greb crowd tends to have a layered structure, with the upper echelons consisting of those that have been grebs the longest: they have attained the enviable status of "old school". Those that have just arrived on the greb scene are known as "newbies", and tend to be viewed with some contempt by the old school crowd. Newbies have to go through a period of piss-taking before they are accepted as proper members of the greb community; this is a kind of hazing ritual and gives the new greb a chance to see what they will have to endure from chavs. After enough time has passed, these newbies become old school, with a wave of newbies stepping in to fill their place. Grebs tend to be more accepting than other groups of people, such as chavs, and generally nicer. They also don't use words such as "bare" or mug people, which is always a good thing.
Those guys in black with skateboards that hang around not doing a lot and being friendly but unproductive.

Although Grebs dress very similar, they are individual. They each wear clothes that show their inner feelings and musical interests. For example, a Rammstein fan would probably wear a Rammstein hoodie, and some grebs wear more chains/spikes/etc than others, making each one unique, compared with townies who wear whatever is in Fashion. Grebs listen to music that involves SOME shouting, if the song is emotional, but most of the time the music consists of powerful singing by people whose voices have actually broken! (Unlike Justin Timberlake) Grebs look intimidating to some people, but are in actual fact the easiest sort of people to get oon with, they're just very laid back - unless you're dumb enough to provoke them! And all these previous things about Grebs not washing, etc, none of it is true - I should know - I'm a Greb and I wash everyday!
Townie: "Ha ha ha! You're such a Greb!"

Greb: "And!? You're point is!?"

A person who believes themself to be indivdual. They are sick and tired of life and want to be different. A greb listens to music that takes talent to create and isnt just made by some twat on a PC. Grebs wear black and baggy clothes, some people say they dont always wear black but some people that wear all those bright colours arent grebs even though they think they are. Grebs usually have long hair to be different. Fashion doesnt apply to grebs because it is a pointless thing. Grebs always seem to be the more intelligent of people. Grebs are the smart people who do well at school usually, this is why they like the talented music, and can recognise talent, unlike the others who just listen to whatever other people like or anything that has good singing. Grebs usually dont bother with vocals because they are usually talentless and try to listen withing the music to the bass or other talented drum or guitar pieces. People who usually take the piss out of grebs are the stupid ones, the ones who are idiots and will never have good jobs.
I hope one day the entire of the Earth shall gain an IQ past room temperature and then realise which music is good. Then the whole world shall be grebs, even though part of the culture is to be original. We'll see....

A Greb is the alternative, in the UK, to a Goth, only slightly more active in the sense that they like the new age punk and metal music and dress more modern instead of pale vampires. Grebs are mostly recognised for peircings, long hair, hoodies and black clothing with spikes and chanins.

a greb is a person who wants to be an individual, they dress how they like, usually wearing baggy clothes, with skulls or daggers. They have their own fashion, and don't care what others think. They don't all ways try to be differant as some people say, but they simply don't care what other people think of them. Basically they do what the hell they like.
non-greb "hey you, why are you wearing that? The top so doesn't go with the trousers"

greb "and?"

A word used to describe anyone who listens to "alternative" music. It is also yet another way people have come up with to further segregate people in society. They often see themselves as being superior to “Chavs” in every possible way and are seen by “Chavs” the same way, both of course are wrong. They can be just as rude and obnoxious as everyone else but a lot as shown by pervious definitions show a lot have a hard time coming to terms with this.
There are just as many grebs who are obnoxious elitist morons as they are polite and kind Grebs.

A much more friendly group of guys/gals than chavs
Named after the thereoy supposedly matching their psycological makeup...
G = Genuine
R = Respectful (apart from after being thrown out of a town centre for nothing..
E = Educated (although theyre not all nerds)
B = Befriending

Grebs enjoy a highly comunistical society all are equals, if any one person is considered better than most, this will have been gained by friendlyness or individuality rather than random muggings. Most grebs will stay with a sexual partner for years, seeing the bond of friendship to be more than just the sex. (whilst a chav would probably last a week at the most)

In some circumstances grebs must fight back and often win, especially if at school. A chav might pick a fight, the greb would throw a few punches in defence, chav ends up on floor, and due to their favouritism amongst teachers they are normally believed and therefore dont get into trouble whilst the chav would.

In greb circles it is cool to express yourself, it is uncommon for a group of grebs to have not formed a band at some point. Most have excellent art or design skills, but would rather spend time making random videos including their friends or hanging out at some concert or gig.
Chav walks into greb

Chav: "Oi watch where ur going u fookin greb

Greb: I didnt...

Chav starts fight, few punches... greb retaliates as defence Chav ends up on floor...

Later, teacher questions what happened and believes greb as they are much better behaved in class

Chav gets excluded from school for a few days
