in the famous movie Breakfast at Tiffany's Audrey Hepburns character discirbes them as a horrible thing there like the blues only the blues is for when your sad
the mean reds are for when you scared and you dont know what your scared of...
Holly Golightly: You know those days when you get the mean reds?

Paul Varjak: The mean reds, you mean like the blues?

Holly Golightly: No. The blues are because you're getting fat and maybe it's been raining too long, you're just sad that's all. The mean reds are horrible. Suddenly you're afraid and you don't know what you're afraid of. Do you ever get that feeling?

Paul Varjak: Sure.

Holly Golightly: Well, when I get it the only thing that does any good is to jump in a cab and go to Tiffany's. Calms me down right away. The quietness and the proud look of it; nothing very bad could happen to you there. If I could find a real-life place that'd make me feel like Tiffany's, then - then I'd buy some furniture and give the cat a name!

When you are afraid of something, but you don't know what it is. Used in the novel and movie, Breakfast At Tiffanys.
...the blues are because you're getting fat or because it's been raining too long. You're just sad, that's all. The mean reds are horrible. Suddenly you're afraid and you don't know what you're afraid of.

Located in Derwood MD, Red Means Go is a shit cover band of a larger local band called The Dregs. Only able to gain popularity in highschool because of the sex scandal between vocalist/bassist Alex Mola and guitarist?(seriously, we dont know) Joey Schaffer. Niether can really play. As their name suggests, they dont know when to stop.
"Hey, did you go to the red means go show on friday?

"no"

"Red means go" is a game played in a car with your significant other. When one comes to a red light, the two occupants of the car make out until a green light occurs. Where normally red means stop.. the car (and please, do stop the car) red also means go.. start kissing, hence the name "red means go".
Ellen and I were playing red means go on the way home. We didn't see the light change, and there were about 10 cars lined up behind us! They were so angry.
