OFFICIAL GROUP NAMES THAT WERE ACTUALLY PRESENT AT MY HIGH SCHOOL
Complied by @hipfun @kapripant and I. It should be noted that these were [mostly] titled by the groups themselves.
- •The RatchetsAka "bops". All under the height of 5'3 these girls ran the party circuit, if you can call the Palo Alto teen scene a party circuit.
- •ChillerStudious pot smokers. Lovers of animal collective, hiking, burritos, higher consciousness, and fresh fruit for breakfast like their mama always gave them.
- •Chiller GirlsAn unwanted but widespread name for my friends and I due to our loose association with the aforementioned "chiller". Aptly described by @kapripant as "pop culture savants and a little more eclectic of an assortment than the others, thus the need for a derivative, rather than descriptive name."
- •The BrosActually a group of girls whose only real connection to the word "bros" was that they dated them. Preppy and athletic. Simultaneously loved and hated each other.
- •The BattalionBoy counterpart to the Bro's. A lot more "bro" like.
- •JerkChain smoking, Internet obsessed, caustically dry humored, boys who hung out in a garage called "the gurg". @hipfun was their only girl member until she left/was kicked out and summarily replaced by a "Courtney Love wannabe".
- •The Seven Deadly SinsHot girls that played sports and encapsulated what you'd imagine when you think of "popular high school girl." Smiley. All American. Seven of them.
- •The Bad P'sHot boys that played sports and encapsulated what you imagine as "high school jock." Muscle-bound. All American. Had (Have?) a twitter page account used to promote their 'brand' and conduct a digital feud with their equivalents at Sacred Heart Prep: "The Wintaboyz"
- •The PioneersOverarching group that included the Bad P's and the 7 Deadly sins.
