15 Reasons You’re a “Bro”


  1. You reside in So Cal, more specifically the IE. Crappy cities such as San Bernardino, Beaumont, Banning, Riverside, Rancho Cucamonga (sorry Mom), Corona, and even Orange County. Actually, lots of parts of Orange County such as Huntington Beach (the IE by the sea), Newport Beach and uh yeah.
  2. You drive what you think is a kick-ass lifted truck! Preferably white with huge monster truck tires and lame  stickers on your back window (So Cal, SKIN, Affliction, Metal Mulisha, etc.)yeah-bro
  3. Your entire wardrobe consists of dickies, bandanas, black tube socks, white chunky skate shoes (even though you couldn’t skate if your life depended on it), and an array of Afflicition, SKIN, Sullen, SRH, and Famous Stars and Straps T-shirts.
  4. Your body is covered in shit-ass tattoos that you decided to get once the whole “tattoo” trend started. Your favorites are your matching swallows, nautical stars and those cool flames that run up your waist.
  5. You’re an avid reader of SKINNIE magazine.
  6. Some of your favorite bands are the Kotton Mouth Kings, Insane Clown Posse, Linkin Park, New Found Glory, Good Charlotte, and P.O.D.
  7. You use the words “juggalo,” “Spade,” or “weed” in your email address or myspace url (you’re too ghetto for Facebook).
  8. Your drinks of choice are Coors Light,  Monster Energy Drink and Jägermeister!
  9. Your live for Super Cross! Yeah bro!
  10. You always wear a flat-billed hat cocked to the side and when you’re feeling fancy you sport a bandanna under it.
  11. If you’re not feeling the hat, sometimes you like to grab some blue La Bella hair gel (economy sized) and show off your spiked frosted-tips.
  12. You’re still sporting white framed Black Flys from 95′ (Fly No. 5’s).
  13. You’re pierced! You have plugs, a tongue ring, lip ring or an eye brow ring (or all of the above).
  14. Your girlfriend has bleached platinum hair, heavy face make-up to cover the meth scabs, and wears those chunky marshmallow-like platform sandals that are made of some weird styrofoam.
  15. You live with your parents but swear you’re a baller and you’re starting a clothing line (how many of those “bro” start-up clothing lines are there, ridiculous!)
