Heavily influenced by the hippie culture that was born in the late 1960s, the children of the 1970s valued the ability to say "cool" in dozens of ways. Think we're kidding? What do groovy, hip, fab, peachy keen, tuff and boss have in common? They all mean variations of "cool."
And much like the youths of today, the young people of the 1970s had to hide what they meant from parents, teachers and other squares by using slang. Unlike their children in the 1990s (who would take to the internet and use a variety of acronyms from "POS" to "LOL") the teenagers of the 1970s communicated in person or over the phone, so the slang was less abbreviation focused, ya dig?
How well do you remember the slang of the '70s? Maybe you're old enough to have used these terms yourself (hey, we're not asking!) Perhaps you've learned them from a love of old 1970s television, like "Good Times" and "Three's Company." Whatever the case, we've created a quiz to challenge you. Dust off your hippie-to-English dictionary and let's get started!
