Kids of the ’80s and ’90s Share Their Favorite Slang Terms They Wish Would Make a Comeback


Do you have any favorite slang terms from the 1980s and ’90s that you wish would make a totally tubular comeback? Personally, I’ve always been a big fan of “Psych!” and hope that’ll make a comeback sometime soon. I’m going to start using it, at least. These AskReddit users definitely do…

1. Inspired by Heathers

“What’s your damage?”

2. Nothing wrong with that

“I still say Rad. And get crap for it.”

3. Cool kid

“My 3 y/o is watching the 80s/90s cartoon and he’s taken to saying “let’s boogaloo” when he wants to go somewhere.”

4. Maybe?

“Do people still say wicked? Because this is a wicked good thread.
Also solid.”

5. Oh God, no!

“One of the primary directives of the mid-90’s
was to avoid being (or being accused of being)
a poser.”

6. Good one

“That’s tight.”

7. Gnar-dog


8. Yes!


9. A pretty sick burn

” “If you love it so much WHY DON’T YOU MARRY IT” “

10. TMNT


11. Just do it!

” “Oh snap” is one I’d use again.”

12. One of the best

“Homie don’t play that – When you talk about something you refuse to do or accept.”

13. Boom

“I liked psych/sike.”

14. Very popular at one time

” “Suck it!” while making the Degeneration X cross on your crotch.”

15. Bring it back!

“Saying something is “the bomb”. I miss it.”
