This isn't "nobody uses them", because undoubtedly there is some asshole who thinks it's 'funny' to say out of sight or groovy, it's more of "nobody uses them ENOUGH in regular conversation".

Like Radical. Not enough people say radical anymore. Or use the cool radical hand signal (pinky/thumb out and waggle your hand, of course)

I still use rad.

I occasionally use the word "Grouse" which is super out of date aussie slang......one might even call it "daggy".

saying something is pimp.

#29 Posted by JoeBigfoot (126 posts) -

It started off as a joke, but I now say "Ace" all the time instead of "good" or "OK".

Calling something bad a "drag."

Confirming with "right on."

I still say bummer like some kind of Ninja Turtle. Most people I know use "word" a lot too and that's been around forever.

Fresh, Funk Fresh, Dope (I think this made a hipster comeback though), Def, Tight, ill, illin'. I still use the first three.

Wait. What have you got against "groovy" now?

If it's good enough for Bruce...

I use 'brilliant' a lot, but maybe that's still a thing, although I've had some American girls lose their minds when I've said it, so...
