Surely it's not as easy as that. What you have described is somebody who is a criminal, but not all chavs are criminals and not all criminals are chavs.

 

From what I can see the word chav is a name hijacked by the middle classes and spread by the tabloid pres to describe working class teenagers who have a liking for outlandish brand labels, gangster rap music, lots of gold jewellery and so on – just scruffy children really.

But not JUST that, I'd say. You're right, not all chavs are criminals, but the popularity of the term 'chav' and the media hoo-hah about it is fuelled by the increasing amount of anti-social behaviour.. so, right or wrong, chavs are becoming synonmous with crime/young offenders, etc...

Nah, Superb was in nappies when grunge happened. If he was even alive.


Kings of Grunge........Nirvana. The intro to Smells Like Teen Spirit still gets the hairs on my neck standing to attention.

Bleedin hell, this thread went off topic pretty quick!

 

Now back to chavs. I think the word chav is actually quite newish, I've only started using it about 2 years back. Before it was pikeys or gypos. Up north there townies and kevs ya know. <img src="/forum/images/graemlins/smirk.gif" alt="" />

With all due respect, 'Best of You' is shocking - at that comes from someone who liked some of their earlier material.

Speaking of bands whose early material was ok and whose latest release is shocking... that new Oasis single... Christ, it's one of THE worst 'rock' songs I have heard in a long, long time.

Yep - but then their singles have been almost entirely poor since about 1998, haven't they?

 

Best to stick with the superb triumvirate of Definitely Maybe, ...Morning Glory and The Masterplan.

Indeed, the best material produced by Oasis can be found on the album "Masterplan" - just their B sides, widely recognised as their best stuff.

 

Foos have been questionable for a while, Groll appears to have discovered shouting instead of singing. Everlong is still class though.

In full agreement there. The Masterplan is their best collection, but I find it strange that nearly everyone regards Definitely Maybe as their best actual album. ...Morning Glory beats it in my eyes - although perhaps its relative over-exposure is what puts people off it a little.
