What does amped mean?


If a person yells and pumps his fist in excitement, they are "amped." The term comes from an amp, which amplifies the signal coming from a connected instrument (e.g., turning a guitar amp up loudly greatly amplifies the sound).

People may use amped in various contexts whenever someone is really enthusiastic, whether it be online, in messages, or in person. For example, you might be excited to see your favorite musician and text your friend, "so amped for the concert tonight. its gonna be fire!" Or, you may confess to your friend, "I didn't get much sleep since I was so amped for the party tonight."


I'm totally amped for the party tonight!
Me too! I'm pumped!
