To UNFAIRLY judge a person and connect him/her with a certain group/clique (ex. Prep, Rocker, Indie, Goth).

Don't label anyone. Seriously. Everyone has got their own personality.

Dictionary definition: a short word or phrase descriptive of a person, group, intellectual movement, etc.
Urban definition: Almost the same as the diciontary definition, but specified more toward a person or group's style or behavior. Examples would be: prep, goth, emo, punk, skater, scene, nerd, jock, etc. A common phrase relating to labels is "Labels are for soup cans," which pretty much means "Don't label people."

But according to the dictionary, you're supposed to label people. And that doesn't just mean "prep" or "emo." What most people don't realize is that everything from gender to religion falls under the category of "labels." So lesson one is, don't think all labels "are for soup cans."

Also, even the labels that are like "prep" or "emo," are they really that bad? I'd agree that they're bad if somebody were to say "I hate all preps," because obviously, not all preps are the same. But if somebody were to just say "I'm a prep," it's not doing any harm. Someone who willingly calls themself by a label must not think badly of labels. Even if somebody calls you a label that you aren't, it doesn't really matter what they think, as long as they don't judge you on it. So, lesson two is, it doesn't really matter what label you are, it just matters how you consider yourself.
-I've noticed you wear a lot of eyeliner and seem to be very interested in alternative bands. Are you emo?
-ZOMG LABELZ R 4 SOUP CANS!
-Um, ok.

A label is the cotton thing inside an item of clothing they are usually 100% cotton however you may have some polyester ones. They make a good sound when you rub them together, so you should do that.

The necessary part of life as a teenager in school or anywhere really...if you don't label yourself to fit in with a particular group of people, then no one really gives 2 hoots about you. After high school, you then realize what you have done with yourself. Often, those who label themselves deny the fact that they are trying to represent a certain image. It is common that music determines who you are.

It is also the paper/plastic wrap on a bottle, or any other product.
*scene kid walks by*

Hey, what do they call that hair style you have?

Scene kid: Uh...I dunno

What do you consider yourself, your style?

Scene kid: I don't label myself

*walks off in his skinny jeans, bandana hanging out of pocket etc...into the rest of the crowd of scene kids*

The label's peeling off of the water bottle.
