Moronic phrase used by pretentious, clueless twats to acknowledge they have made an error
I forgot to remove the safety catch before putting the gun against my own dumb-ass head and pulling the trigger. My bad

This phrase actually came from bad spelling and the internet. Lazy spellers who couldn't be bothered with an apostrophe said:

"your bad" instead of "you're bad", the latter being correct (a contraction for YOU ARE BAD), but the former being more common.

The proper response to "your bad" is OH, it's MY BAD? The "bad" being possessive.
I ditched school today. My bad." from the original "oh, you ditched today? Your bad.

Another way to apologize or say I'm sorry.

I slang that white people picked up from black people but fucked it up as the original term was "My Bag". White DJ's during the 80's truggled to understand African American slang and urban hip hop culture and scambled to catch up once they saw that shit starting to make money after years of shunning it. So they tried to understand it. But being the litteral minded white devils they are, they misunderstood "My Bag" to be "My Bad" reasoning that since the term was followed by some mistake on the users part they must be saying "My Bad" and due to the fact that the media is controlled by the white devil the term became "My Bad".

I understand it to mean "error" or "screw-up" or "bad behavior". An abbreviated informal apology.

While some believe it to be a misinterpretation of the older phrase My Bag it is clearly it's own slang with its own origins and meaning.
