Often a blanket, derisive term used by those who are fortunate enough to be endowed with a new car and a tidy stock portfolio for their eighteenth birthday. While not all those who are unfortunate enough to live in the western suburbs conform to the bogan stereotype, snobs and eastern suburbs wannabe's will generalise about anyone who they deem not of their ilk. let's not confuse bogans with westies, and even if we do, some people just like black jeans and vb's and if all they can afford is an early model ford or holden then good luck to them. Lot's of luck to the lot of them.

The definitions of Bogan here are mostly by non Bogan contributors and as such give a highly bias view.

In Western Australia bogans were a bona fide youth culture embracing heavy metal music and Aussie muscle cars. Bogan took over from the old 'Rocker' term that had been around since the 50's and 60's. In fact the word Bogan is a variant of the word Bodgie, an old Australian word for Rocker.
A typical school in WA in the eighties would be divided into Surfies, Bogans and Mods(who also included skinheads, punks, goths and other anglophiles).

We did have a uniform as bogans, black jeans, black ripple sole desert boots, flannelette shirt and blue singlet or black t-shirt with your favourite metal band print(mine was AC/DC). Yes there were mullets but we generally shaved our heads.
We drove any H series Holdens and motorbikes were also popular, nowadays a true bogan is hard to distinguish from a Bikie and many of us got envolved with Bikie Clubs. But a true bogan is a Rev-head with a love of Metal. Eastern States people have expanded the term to include just any white trash.
Bogan's do burnouts and Bog-laps in HQ's
Bogan's are the surfies enemy
Bogan is a part of Australian youth culture that had it's heydey in the eighties and was born out of the earlier Rocker movement.

The Bogas Maximus is a fascinating creature located in Sydney, Australia. Previously bred and civilised in the outer west, most have now migrated to the Shire. The Bogas Maximus can be lured out of their natural habitat fairly easily. All it takes is cheap beer, Lebanese lifesavers and a national pride day. Bogans can be observed participating in activities such as watching the footy, going to pubs and/or starting riots most often rooted from racism and a general dislike for anything unaustralian. The Bogus Maximus prides itself in being Australian, and can be found wearing items of clothing such as overalls, wife beater t-shirts and thongs. Male and female bogans rarely interface with each other, and only gather together to breed and repopulate.
Haha, look at all those bogans starting riots in Cronulla.

A kind of yobbo guy. Flanelette shirts, beer belly, mullet haircut, cruising the streets with their windows down. Very Australian.
A guy about 30 is a construction worker and he has his mates over to watch the footy (lots of mullet haircuts.)
Here's your chance to say, "Urgh, ya bogans!"

People commonly found in outer city limits in Australia or small country towns. Attire is usually black in colour, jeans being tight and torn across the knees and on the lower bum cheek. The foot wear is usually one of the following 4; DB's Desert Boots or "Rollers", Ugg Boots, Rossie Shearers boots or no shoes at all. Shirts are usually flannel in nature or promoting bands such as MetallicA, PanterA, AC/DC, Sepultura, Iron Maiden or Megadeth. Hair is usually grown long, cut into a mullet or worn in dreadlocks, sometimes shaved but this results in them being mistaken for skin heads. Language is none other than loud and foul; ie "TRAVIS GET THE FUCK OUT OF THAT FUCKIN' TREE YOU LITTLE SHIT!". The common bogan is usually found to be drinking VB or Bundy. Without these valuable liquids, a bogan would surely perish. As far as diet is concerned the bogan preferrs meat, potatos and cheese because it is in their belief that any other vegetables/foods are for pussies. Transport is usually either by Holden or Ford. There is a long running feud within the bogan community as to which is better. The Tasmanian bogan is far different to the mainland bogan, as they listen to rap music and wear fubu, dada etc. This just goes to show how foolish the common Tasmanian is, mistaking "wiggers" for bogans. This brings much unwanted shame to the bogan community as a whole, being misrepresented by wiggers with poor taste in music and shiny clothing.
