What does it mean when something is wack?


When something is really strange, crazy, annoying, or awful, you might describe it as "wack." For example, if a company doesn't honor the warranty for its product, you may exclaim, "This is wack!" while hanging up the phone.

Wack is short for "wacked out" and "wacky," and was popularized in the 1990s. People often used it like a catchphrase with an emphasis on the "wack." For example, your friend may say, "That's just wack, man" when you said you can no longer make it to his wedding.


She said she didn't want to be together anymore because I didn't have a job
That's just wack, man

Wack, man
