    This one's been around for decades, Parri:
    ~Cassells Dictionary of Slang
    Also at dictionary.com.

    I've been hearing/using it myself since the 1970s.

    of course yes! But I wasn't able to find "knobhead" in wordreference dictionary and I decided to add it. Have I chose the wrong part of the forum?
