Subject: Slang words of the '90s

Written By: tekkno_bwoy on 05/18/04 at 4:02 pm

Okay, now I just want to point out some of the slang words and phrases that came out of the 1990s. 

"sweet"- big early '90s word

"mega"-which I was amazed to hear after so long from my girlfriend in 1999

"it's all good"- started in 1994 and just can't seem to fade out

"the sh*t"- old pimp term

"da bomb"- actually used to describe marijuana in the negative term, from the old Dragnet movies

"phat"- also can stand for: Pretty Hot And Tempting...I love Chris Tucker... ;D

"word is bond"- eastcoast saying I used to hear a lot

"livin' large"

"kickin' it"

"dogg" or "dawg"- I still laugh when I hear kids today say this

There's many more, but I'm so strained right now, so if anyone has anymore they'd like to throw into the mix, go ahead.  I'm curious as to what "you" used to say "back in da day"- another term... ;D

Peace out "doggz"

Bosh- meaning good, or to eat something;
Garys or Micks- Gary Abbletts (tablets), Mick Mills (pills);
Sorted- self explanatory;
Rave- outdoor illegal party;
Cushty- OK;
I'm sure there's more, I'll post them when I get time...

Written By: tekkno_bwoy on 05/19/04 at 4:07 pm

Here's a couple more I thought of:

"Audi 5000"- 1991 term that means: "I'm out".  It's a car, and I guess it goes really fast.  ;D

"skills" or "skillz"- around 1992-93 to mean, someone's got knowlege, charisma, etc...

"flava"

"izz"--actually it started in 1980-81(when I was 2 and 3). It's kind of like pig latin.  It's when you take a word, such as "house" and you put the "izz" after the "h" and before the "o"...hence you have "h-izz-ouse".  There's an old song from 1981 by Frank Smith called The Double Dutch Bus that uses plenty of the "izz".  In 1992, Snoop Dogg used a lot of it in Dr. Dre's The Chronic.  It's still popular today.  Tr-izz-y it and impress your fr-izz-iends.  :)

"step off"--means go away, or f**k off

"playa"- I need not explain what most of us already know about this term... >:(
"

"cheese"- money

"bunk" and "whack"- something stupid, or dumb

There's a few more for your laughing pleasure....some of them are urban slang, so forgive me.  8)

Not a clue, karen...but I do remember some crummy kids show (on at the weekends at some unearthly hour) having this title - I'd hazard a guess and say it was the 90's...

Didn't 'Good Call' (meaning good idea, sound opinion...) make an entrance during this decade? I used to (and still do!) hate that phrase...

A lot of these slang words were always around in the African-American community. The mainstream, however, got hold of them at this time and ruined them.

Talk trash, trash talk, "he trashed her"  (bad-mouth)
Trashed (drunk, high)

Everyone started to use "oh my god" everywhere.

No one couldget through a whole sentence without using unnecessary "likes". And they like, still can't.

"WHATEVER"

"Way." Like, that was WAY awesome. Or.. "Way?" "Way!"

"Major"

"Yo"

Pauly Shore's version of "Buddy"... something like "Bu-UHHH-dy"

Everything was "retarded."

"Stoked"

"Rockin' the X" replace the X with any noun. Like if I'm eating a pb&j sandwich, I'm "rockin' the PBJ."

"SO"  Like, I so don't even have to explain this one.

You all up in the kool-aid and don't even know the flavor (Basically whenever someone is being overly nosy)

Haterade (WHAT HATERS BE DRINKIN')

Purple drank/drank (Not grape juice, what poor people drink in substitute)

You feeling crunchy? (When someone feels dumb for something they said)

posse (I am sure it dates back to outlaws but it was the new crew, circle of friends)


That one goes way further back than that: Public Enemy, Track 5 (Too Much Posse), from "Yo, Bum Rush the Show" in 1987.

A certain rap artist used it for his rap name back then...Busta Rhymes!

    "homes" you mean yeah alot of spanish people use it i guess .. i still here it  .. "homes" means  friend,brother,pal,man

I remember that. At first I wasn't sure if it was "holmes" or "homes"... but "homes" seems like it would make more sense as an alteration for "homey", which means friend/pal/man, like you said.

I feel like saying that something "rocks" is very 90s...I remember a girl saying it in 2002 and thinking "wow, I haven't heard someone say that in a while".
