aggro is just general violence Comment by: andy mackay   
In the States, "aggro" is an abbreviation of "aggressive," specifically describing someone in the act of angry, violent assault. Commonly seen on the Jerry Springer Show and at drunk frat parties across the US. Comment by: sally    Rated:4/5
'I'm not going to THAT pub again. That guy's there and I don't need the aggro!' Comment by: Funkyfairycakes   
It looks as if the usage (meaning) in the US is different from the usage in Commonwealth countries (UK, Australia, NZ etc.). The US usage seems to lean towards actual violence (like a short form of 'aggression'), and in Commonwealth countries more towards bother, trouble and harassment (like a short form of 'aggravation'). A typical Commonwealth English usage would be, "Lisa? Haven't seen her for months. She was always on at me for some f*ckin' thing or other, and it was just too much aggro, so I left." Or maybe, "I found out she was married, though the bitch had never told me, and I didn't need that kind of aggro." Comment by: Gairlochan    Rated:4/5
