Noun : refers to people who listen to a range of music from punk to metal. It was once common to see greebos wearing blue jeans black hoodies and to have a metal chain hanging from their pocket however this seemed to disappear after the ascent of the chav as many greebos descended into chavdom. Greebo was once used as an insult by chavs and those with little understanding of the side darker of life however over time the insult has faded and it has just become accepted by people such as myself as a way of describing us. Greebo is somewhere between skater and goth.
chav: you fuckin' greebo
greebo: chav
chav; *hangs head in shame*

'Greebo' is commonly used as an insult by chavs or townies to offend anybody that has a disimilar dress sense to themselves. May be used with any of the prefixes 'fucking', 'dirty', or 'filthy' and if being adressed by a chav or higher than average intelligence you may even get a suffix, for example: 'cunt' 'twat' or 'bastard'. This could give any number of wonderful insults like 'filthy greebo cunt'.
Other stereotypes can be used such as emo, grunger or goth but essentially to the chav mind it is all the same.
I could define the stereotypical 'greebo', 'emo' or 'goth' but really theres no need because these are just stereotypes and if you ever find yourself called one when you wouldn't necessarily consider yourself to be in that sort of social group then it is most likely because you are wearing an item of clothing that is black or hangs loosely on your frame, or if you have hair that spans between lengths of partially covering your forehead, to entirely covering your face.
To those hollering these names at you, regardless of whether they insult you or merely make you laugh at your assailant's lack of intelligence, the content of your character does not matter, they will simply assume that because you have hair that is not kept in trim with a lawn mower and that you listen to music with lyrics that do not include the words 'dawg' 'bitch' 'G' that you must worship the devil, be miserable with your life and want to end it pretty sharpish.
It is an unfortunate occurance. Because most 'greebos'are infact regular people with regular lives, jobs and aspirations. They are only targeted with verbal abuse because they are not wearing sports tracksuits, despite the irony that chavs do wear sportswear, they would do anything to avoid exercise.

So to anyone receiving rude remarks and words that these people don't seem to comprehend, even if they are shouting them at you, never mind. They are just calling you an individual and ever so slightly agitated that you are not a sheep like them, stabbing people, modifying cars that are deemed unroad-worthy upon purchase and giving pre-adolecents STIs.
This is a real life example, one that i had to put up with no matter how utterly stupid it actually was. This kid has called me a greebo before, just decided to comment on my hair this time instead:

I was just heading up the stairs on my way to my art lesson, second period in the day, three boys in the year below me where walking up the stairs infront of me. One of them says "get a haircut" after a little more walking in silence i thought to myself "hmm... i could form a witty response to that" but to avoid confrontation i merely grumbled a fairly quiet "no". It seems he must have been waiting for some sort of response or had just imagined one and retaliated because it's in his nature because he said "what did you say?" in as intimidating a voice as he could muster. I just looked at him with a smile and said "I'd rather not thanks." and then it began. He stopped on the stairs and gave me the typical crap. A mention about a fight, something about me starting. I was just thinking 'you stupid little twat'. so rather than turn around and take another set of stairs i carried on walking up the stairs without saying anything to him so he leant forward and tried to push me down the stairs. Really i thought this was a little harsh just because i disagreed with his judgement that i needed to cut my hair, and that i personally didn't even know this kid.
To cut a long story short after a little of him wrapping his tiny hands around my neck and a bit of me pushing him up the stairs i made my way to my art lesson. It was only then that i regretted having been wearing a big coat, a bag on my back and a folder in my hand, and dearly wished i could have thrown him down the stairs, followed by removing some of his more important organs and leaving him in an unattractive mess on the floor. But thats just how things go eh?

People often get greebo's confused wid goths ( if they're a bit retarded e.g townies)A greebo listens to music such as nirvana,the chillis,qotsa, foos etc. They where baggy clothes mainly black, and the lads have long overgrown hair.Greebo's are well none for smoking weed,pot, shit wateva ya wanna call it, but not all do despite what the oh so intelligent burberry wearer's think. And for all the people who think greebos have something against you they probably do, as not all people enjoy havin abuse shouted at dem in da streets or gettin da shit kicked out of dem wen they've done nothin to you.
Townie: Ow look someone dressed in black and mindin their own business, must be a greebo, lets kill it!

Yet another classification that manages to simultaneously offend, insult, and start a fight.

1) Bloke with Harley Davidson who just happens to wear leather, denim and chunky boots. Probably has long hair and a Hulk Hogan style long hair-in-bandana-tasche combo, as the groomed look isn't really practical when biking. This archaic definition of the word 'greebo' is rapidly becoming antiquated and disused. Many second-generation greebos are not aware of the derivative status of the term.

2) Very shortlived musical subculture involving undercut hair and grubby clothes, influencing a couple of contemporary bands and thousands of grungy teenagers everywhere. Coined the term moshers.

3) 'Alternative' teenagers who like baggy jeans and Nine Inch Nails. Generally aged between 10 and 16, this subculture share an affinity with goths in that they feel the need to be recognised as individuals, without realising that this aim is destroyed by the act of categorising oneself as a 'greebo'. Greebos enjoy the company of other greebos, goths and punks, and are most likely to be found skinning up outside Korn concerts or drinking vodka under bridges.

Unlike a chav, the typical greebo can form complex sentences and can understand the benefits of basic education. Unfortunately, this perception is marred by a compulsive desire to get pissed and/or stoned.
Similarly to goths, greebos must have at least one body piercing. This is most commonly the eyebrow or the ear, as they look good but do not hurt. More adventurous greebos may go with the septum or the bridge, but group opinion leaves the more adventurous modification to punk subculture.

Greebo nutrition is limited to fast food, alcohol and nicotine. Unlike a chav or a goth, a greebo will not tend to become emaciated. This is partly due to the hunger pangs caused by smoking dope, and the fact that Pot Noodles are cheaper than chips.

4) A one eyed cat of foul temperament belonging to Nanny Ogg, a character in the popular Discworld Series of novels by Terry Pratchett.

Fun facts: Shout, 'Police!' and a greebo can run faster than Kelly Holmes on crack.

I am what the chavs and chavette's call a greeeebooo, in the same way a fog horn blows.I wear things that I think look nice and that I'm comfortable with. I get abuse because of the way I dress and the music I listen to. I reckon what I listen to is tonnes better than that pure s**t that these people who think they rule the earth listen to. I mean all it is, is a bunch of curse's put to a beat that lasts for what seems like three hours. Im not offensive unless provoced, Im not aggressive, and I don't have the potentiol of a dead squirrel. I'm just a normal human being with a unique tatse in music. My everyday casual dress is, baggy jeans with maybe a chain hanging down one side, a black, red, dark pink or white top and some wicked accessories, like maybe a few gummy bracelets and maybe a chain bracelet and an arm warmer. I feel good in this clothing because it is what i WANT to wear, not what I have to!! If people don't like me for what I am then I don't really care. My friend Nicole was beaten up for being a greebo, she left school for a week and they still don't treat her right. It's worse than racisism, not that I'd prefer it that way. I just wish all discrimination would be eliminated. I wish there was no difference.
Chav: Greeeeeeboooo!!
Chav 2: ewww ya' dirty gof'!
Greebo: *raises one eyebrow* o...kay? *shrugs shoulders*
Chav: Am yo a greebo? ya greasey f**ker!!
Greebo: And proud! *walks away*
