notes

  • See also get crunk with (one).

    As of Aug 6 2007, "crunk" was the most-submitted word to The Online Slang Dictionary. It was submitted around 60 separate times. (The spelling "krunk" was submitted 13 times.)

    Over a period of approximately 3 months, the exact same definition text was submitted 13 times. Spelling and grammar errors have been retained:
    The word originated from Justin Timberlake of 'Nsync. The meaning of crunk is multipurposefull. It can mean:

    a good time 'That party was so crunk!', as

    a question 'What the Crunk?!?',

    description of an object 'That is such a crunk babyblue jacket!',

    when one is giving up 'Oh man, just crunk it!',

    to express fondness to another person 'You are the crunkest girl I know.'

    The act of becoming crunk is to be 'crunktified,' but

    losing 'crunkness' results in being 'decrunked.' Once 'decrunked,' if proven worthy,

    one can then 'recrunk' and become crunk again.

    The possibilities are endless.

    I would also like to comment that this is no joke. Millions of people know and could recite the exact sentence above (get yo party...) if asked. In the teenybopper vocabulary, this IS, without a doubt, the most important word. Period.
    The "exact sentence" referenced in the above text is, "Get yo party on tonight we're gonna get it crunk."

    Many submissions (even those which did not use the above text) credited Justin Timberlake of the band NSYNC with coining the term. This is unlikely. See Wikipedia's entry for "crunk" for early uses.
