Top definition
A greebo is a person who listens to rock/punk/metal music and doesn't follow fashion trends.
They don't usually class themselves as being a greebo but are assigned that title by trendies/rudes. Some of them may look quite threatening but generally they are all around nice people and they resist starting fights or arguments with people who do follow trends. However, if you were to ask one if they had anything against trendies or rude boys their answer would seldom be 'no'. Almost all Greebos have some kind of disliking towards trendies mainly because they make their lives hell. Abuse is hurled at them when they walk down the street and they frequently get the crap beaten out of them for absolutely no reason other than the fact that they are different.
Greebos also seem to be fairly itelligent people if not it one way, they are bound to be intelligent in another, this may contribute to why greebos rarely start fights with trendies and rudes, because they are intelligent enough to know that it wont solve anything.
Greebos are alternative people who just want to be treated fairly.
Trendies: *sniff the air* Look, theres something that looks nothing like us, lets make it's life a living hell.

The term Greebo originates from 1950s bikers who had greased back hair hence "greebo". Many people use the word "Greebo" in reference to teenagers who listen to rock bands and dress in a manner which distances themselves from the masses. Chavs/trendies/townies etc have been fighting with greebos since the legendary "mods and rockers". Today, we see two subcultures opposing each other, Chavs and Greebos. While chavs have a tendency to be on the less academic side, a large portion of greebos continue on through further education. This is mainly due to the class divide. It has been noted by numerous sociological sources that Chavs are predominantly working class; while "Greebos" are predominantly middle class.
Chavs should be nice to greebos because one day they'll be working for one!

He is a greebo.

Idiotic-sounding definition for a person who likes heavy metal/rock etc. Used by members of the flock to pigeonhole individuals into a category. Describes a person who won't follow boring trends or be brainwashed by the constant stream of waste excreted from the filthy abyss of the pop music industry.
Look at those gloves! You f*cking greebo. You want to get yourself some Calvin Klein gear. Beat her up, babe.

A greebo is somone who is proud to be different from everyone else, people say that they are like that because they have no friends or are always trying to kill them selves, but that's not true. Greebos are peace makers who don't want to start fights because they know it won't help anything. Too many people judge greebos by what they look like, which isn't fair, it's what is on the inside that counts.

I am a greebo, and I'm proud of it, if someone makes fun of me for being who I am I don't care.
Walk around for less than two minutes and get dirty looks from anyone who doesn't like people who are different. (Greebos rule!)

an overused word, where it has a different meaning wherever you go. According to someone i know, greebo is another word to describe a punk up north.
Or if you happen to live in the evesham area, anyone that doesn't tuck their trouser bottoms into their socks ¬_¬ i got called it recently, i don't necessarily agree but neither do i disagree with them. I'm just a general music lover that favours a particular style of dress, and i just so happened to be wearing my beloved tramp hat at the time (that may have had something to do with it). maayybee

I agree with whoever posted the definition about how anyone in their 30's now was really a true "greebo" though, they got it right there
me: *strolls down the street*
random: hey, look at that girl wearing nothing but black and grey, chains and a stupid hat, she must be trying to be rebellious and different!
me: err...you talking about me?
random: greeeebo! grubby greeebo
me: what? i'm not
random: then what are you?
me: i am a person whose just walking down the road
random: but but you gotta be a greebo! just look at the dark colours, baggy clothes, wooly hat, chains...you have long hair!
me: yes...yes i do have long hair
random: you probably listen to korn
me: yeah and? for your information, i was just listening to ministry of sound five minutes ago
*gasps all round*
me: yeah that's right! i listen to dance! i also like drum n base, and britney spears as well as gizmachi, korn, cob and enslaved!
random: what...somethings wrong...my small fragile and shallow view of the universe is crashing down before my very eyes!

*a vortex appears, and the random is sucked into it*

becky: gee ellie, that's the fifth vortex this you've accidentally created this week, you oughtta stop scaring people like that
me: accidentally? er yeah...accidentally *shifty eyes*
becky: oh well, wanna get a coffee?
ellie: sure

there are many different types of people who make up the greebo population. all of them are different but have one or two things in common, they listen to rock & roll of different types and dont wear fashionable clothes. Yeah they may look a bit stuipid sometimes but theyt really dont give a fuck. they dont have a problem with non greebos so all the stuff about greebos being trouble makers who cause fights and problems with non greebos is crap. greebos will cause not much problem. im not saying their are squeaky clean but they dont go looking for trouble. they just wanna have a good time. greebos and goths often get mixed up which is stupid because if you knew what a greebo was and what a goth was then you know the difference. Oh yeah and they are quick clever and witty so watch out. im a goth so you can say this is bias if you want but i couldnt really give a fuck. like when people shout abuse at me for being a goth, i couldnt give a fuck. people say all this crap about individuality being fake. i say fuck off and mind your own buisness like greebos do. if you gonna insult someone, know your facts. case closed. no more problems then.
someone who wants to cause trouble - greebo, what the fuck you think you are,greebo, you look so stupid,greebo, you wanna fight, greebo, cuz your not like me, im trying to make you look small and silly, greebo.

person who is being accused of being greebo - fuck off you silly twat and come back when you know the meaning of the word
