1. The abbreviation found on a key on a keyboard that stands for "Escape."

2. Abbreviation for "Electronic Stability Control" which is a computer that has all the features found in TCS and ABS, but prevents things like understeer and oversteer to prevent roll overs, skids, and spins. Currently Congress is trying to pass a bill that requires ESC on all SUVs.

3. Abbreviation for "Electronic Speed Control" which are found in high end RC cars that limit the amount of current that goes to the motor so it doesn't fry.
1. I was playing the game, but it stopped becaused I hit the ESC key

The "escape" key. It, like, closes windows, or programs, or something like that. Often used in vain by computer illiterate school teachers to somehow fix a frozen computer.
- "Mrs. So-and-so!"
- "Yes?"
- "I think my computer froze."
*teacher walks over*
- "Hmmm...."
*teacher repeatedly taps the "Esc" key*
- "Well, I'm not sure what's wrong. Just go to another computer."
- "But I'm in the middle of an assignment!"
- "Well, tough shit!"

The ESC is Eastern Santa Cruz. just past the Santa Cruz mountains in Central California. It cradles Reggae/ Ska, Punk Rock and skateboarding as well as beach side cities. Commonly smelling of the Ocean, remnants of sand are on most of the weathered streets. The ESC has a lot of umbrella shaped trees and is a good place to walk like it's the concrete jungle and chill like it's Maui. The reggae-rock band The Expendable is an ESC band. The ESC is also found in their song Sinsemillia.
Dude let's head down to the ESC for some surf and skate. I need some place to hang for a while.
