It wasn’t the coolest lingo ever created but it sure beats “groovy” — sorry Marcia Brady. In case you don’t remember, “da bomb” was used to describe all things cool, awesome, dope, sweet, funky and/or fresh. I constantly hear people saying that “da bomb” is a dead phrase but it’s actually not completely obsolete. Nowadays, people say that something is “bomb”, for example: “That Taco Bell last night was bomb.” See, they dropped “da” and continue to use “bomb”. Sometimes they even replace “da” with the word “so”, for example: “That Taco Bell last night was so bomb.” See how that works? So “da bomb” is not dead, it’s simply on life support. Viva Da Bomb.
