There is nothing new under the sun. When I was a teenager we used cool back then along with fab. Everything was fab. The fab four (the Beatles).

I think 'cool' is one of those words that never became unpopular, it's just been in constant use since the 60's. I'm sure I use it all the time and don't even notice. The only time I ever hear someone use 'fab' is when they're trying to sound like an old hippie.

Is 'fat' from that time as well? I thought it was something started by hip hop culture in the 90's, 'phat party, yo.'

Vet is the Dutch word as in "Een vette feest" and it comes from the '90's. They use it to descibe a friend as well when it is a compliment.

Hippies did not really use it. (i was one). It was mostly used by mods.(I was one as well before my hippie period) Being an hippie was cheaper :lol:
