metal idiot: I'm like so fucking metal , I act metal , I dress dress metal , I look so metal and badass , and all I listen to is metal.
normal person: You guys are posers.Good music and bad music exists in all genres of music and you need to listen to more than just one genre of music. Besides if all you listen to is just one genre then you must be suffering from the delusion that everything in that one genre constitutes GOOD MUSIC which is impossible since every genre has it's share of good music and bad music regardless of how simple or complex the music is.You guys just don't want to have to think too hard (aw is thinking too hard?) and so you take the easy way out and latch onto one thing hard.Then you adopt the look and the fashion and the hairdo and the lifestyle and "pose" as that image and think that makes you all cool and badass.It doesn't.You're lame.Posers!
You shouldn't have to do this to be accepted.
I mean, don't say you skateboard when one, you have no idea how to in the first place, and two, you could get yourself into a conversation about skateboarding where you don't know what the hell you're even talking about.
I mean, why should it matter what crowd you fit into?
If you're naturally a scene kid, go ahead, keep on being scene. We like it.
If you're naturally a prep, be a prep. Who gives a flying leap?
If you're a prep, and you like a scene kid and you feel you have to change yourself so that they'll notice you, don't. They won't like it, and you won't like it. Besides, who knows? They may just like you for the way you are.
Ohh, and just because someone listens to Good Charlotte, doesn't mean that they're a poser. They just like them.
If a situation arises where you hear that someone likes Good Charlotte, talk to them. See if they like any other bands. Who knows? They could like A Cursive Memory or The Dreseden Dolls just as much.
Good Charlotte is not punk, mmkay pumpkins?
but just because some people like them doesn't mean they're posers.
However, the literal definition is someone who attempts to 'pose' or not be their actual self, to fit in among others.
"Are you serious? He doesn't even skate. Man, what a poser."
Truthfully, this by no means suggests that John was actually attempting to pose as a skater. He just bought the clothes he wanted.
Guy #2: Whateva, I do what I want!
2.Also when people pretend to like, for instance, a band when actauly they just think the lead singer is 'hot' as opposed to actualy liking the music.
Non-poser: Realy? same, i realy like their music. My favourite song is probably 'You know what they do to guys like u in prison'. Whats yours?
Poser: ummm...uh...i dunno but Gerard Way is waaaaay hot!
(btw im not saying mcr are not hot im just saying that thats the ONLY reason the posers will like the band, because they think they're hot.)
