    the term "throwback"

    Discussion started by Pfffffffffft - Mar 19, 2004

    ok, we all know what this means, my question to you all is do you think this term will stick around and become another term used to describe remade items. i mean we have terms like, vintage, classic, oldtimey, ect. or do you think it is just more trendy slang?

    just a thought

    i can hear it now..

    "introducing, the 2004 throwback VW beatle!!"

    I'm sorry, no offense, but I have to ask... Have you people been living under a rock? That term has been intertwined with the media and the mainstream for the past 2 1/2 years...

    Just in case someone was curious, the first rapper to rock a throwback in a video and set off the trend was Big Boi from OutKast in the music video "Black Ice" by the Goodie Mob back in '98. He had the old Astros jersey with the neon orange nylon sweats.
