Someone who follows the Seattle Grunge movement in ALL it's forms, not just fucking Nirvana (get a deal, examples: Hole, L-7, Pearl Jam, Babes In Toyland (although more Riot Grrrl), Alice in Chains, Sound Garden, PAW, Mudhoney, Screaming Trees, yes, and a million more I THANK YOU).

A "grunger" is also an expression for a person who follows this music and not the actual dress of the listener, although in the late 1980's they were associated with flannels and thrift store clothing due to lack of money (most teenagers are often broke because they insist on doing things their own way rather than sapping their daddy's credit cards for the latest football strips and Nike trainers. Get a deal you fucking townies and don't try to define what you'll never understand.
NOT just Kurt Cobain

A grunger is a person who listens to grunge music mostly from the early 90's Seattle (including bands like Mudhoney, Nirvana, Soundgarden and Green river) and dresses accordingly. A grunger might be caught wearing clothes such as torn jeans, flannel shirts and tennis shoes (or babydoll dresses and screaming red lipstick if she happens to be a girl), but clothing doesn't really make a difference, because a grunger wears clothes that are COMFORTABLE and doesn't pay attention to appearance. A grunger might sometimes be perceived as dirty, because they don't give much thought to hygiene. As it seems, a lot of people have the misconception that a grunger wears baggy jeans and baseball caps and carries around a skateboard. That's not the case though. Grunge has nothing to do with skating and a typical grunger would probably not wear baggy jeans, caps or skating shoes. Grungers are usually past teenage, since the grunge movement became more common in the late 80's and early 90's. Unlike punkers, grungers don't feel the need to be particularly rebellious, they just don't care. Grunge is mostly about the love for a certain kind of music.

a bunch of cool guys who listen to rock,heavy metal punk ect. as long as its got electric guitars,bass, drums in moshing

they are unique and are friendly with just about anyone but townies.They actually lead a life instead of sucking up to those fu**ing townies,grungers dont go with the crowd(which is gay townies).they wear baggy jeans and tops and chains which are actually COMFORTABLE so they sometimes look a bit messy

Townies are always trying to be nasty to grungers cos' they are jealos or other stupid reasons.But normally the insult comes out the same e.g "your a dic*" or fu** off!
this happens because townies have no intelligence at all cos' they dont go to school
Townie: Oi! wha' u lookin at!
Grunger: Your ugly face
Townie: Come on den!

(grunger will fight if ther is only 1-2 of them,but will run if there is 20 cos' townies are to afraid to stand up for themselves or scared of getting hurt)

Townie: You runnin away! You afraid of me!
Grunger: Yeah-im afraid your attracted to me!
A grunger is someone who listens to a subculteral type of music called grunge. A grunger is always being stereotyped as a "skater" and being mocked for their taste in clothes, becasue of the simple fact they don't have one. Grungers wear whatever they can find. This usually means flannel shirts and faded holey jeans. Most grungers are male(though not all) and have long(sometimes greasy)hair. Grungers are also mocked for their hygiene and cleanliness, as grungers don't give a shit what people think of them. Grunge bands include Nirvana, Pearl Jam and many others. A grungers worst enemy is a townie.
Townie #1: Safe maht, innit?
Townie #2: A'ight.
Townie #1: Fucking grungas round, fuckin' knock 'em out, cos I'm 'ard.
Townie #2: 'Ow then, let's go knock 'em out.
Townies meet a grunger

A person who listens to grunge music (e.g. Nirvana) and dresses in the style that such bads adhere to (e.g. baggy, usually untidy looking, clothes). Others could be perceived to be grungers due to dressing in that style of clothing although they may not listen to grunge. To be a "true" grunger the person must do both.
Grunger= Music and clothing style match
Perceived grunger= clothing style only
Closet grunger= music only

Lets see then . . . well grungers are teenagers (normally boys but there are girl grungers too) that mainly listen to: Rock, Hard Rock, Metal, Heavy Metal, Hard Metal, Love Metal, New Wave Of British Metal a.k.a NWOBM (eg: iron maiden), Gothic Metal, Gothic Rock.

Grungers wear: baggy jeans (normally cost £40), long t - shirts with a band name on it, hoodies with band name on it, skateboarding shoes or boots, chains.

Many people have made the mistake that grungers skateboard. Well this is wrong, a skater is someone that skateboards and generally listens to Punk music and other bands like Red Hot Chilli Peppers. Grungers don’t have to skate (I don’t) but can do if they wish.

A grunger doesn't get into fights but only resorts to violence as a last resort.

A grunger's most hated enemy is a townie; townies are scumbags that wear disgusting (unisex) tight clothing, listen to garage music and speak in an untranslatable language.

General Info:
Grungers normally get their clothes from Camden Market.

Most Grungers get a kick out of extreme gore!

A grunger’s favourite colour is normally black.

Most grungers scar old people (not intentionally) lol.

Grungers have long hair.

Grungers don't care what others think, as long as they're happy with what they wear, listen too and do in life, then a grunger is on top of the world :)

current artists in my "listening to" pile: marilyn manson, white zombie, HIM, cradle of filth, rob zombie, slipknot, iron maiden.

Someone (male or female) who
a) is anti-fashion
b) has long hair
c)invariably like NIRVANA and other grunge seattle based bands
d)likes heavy rock, metal, punk etc.
e) tries to be peaceful
f) hates non-individual, un-genuine people (e.g. townies and fakers)
g)cares about other people, not just themselves
h)doesn't try and act "cool" just is themselves
i)wears clothes, that are as cheap as they can find but still comfotable and good enough to wear - often from charity shops or from ebay. Often wears baggy jeans/trousers, tops WITHOUT LOGOS ON, jumpers (a la Kurt Cobain), earthy colours -greens, beiges, kharkis (but not in an army style)

Grungers dont care what other people think of them. They love music and as long as they are happy and their friends are happy they are content.
- Eddie Vedder, Kurt Cobain - 2 most famous grungers...

Oh.. also.. most grungers actually HAVE BRAINS and ... USE THEM. They can talk properly.
