To “go silverback”: to fly into an intense and sudden rage which might involve contortions of the face, grimaces, a roar of anger and raised fists. After attacking and at least attempting to land a few punches, the rage recedes and the person often goes in a subdued and slightly embarrassed silence.
When he found out I’d slept with his girlfriend, Andy went silverback on my ass.

All I said was that I thought her sister was cute and she went totally silverback

Slang term referring to women between 50-65. Generally
used to refer to the stage after "Cougar". So called due to
the grey or silvery hair at this age.
I like silver backs. They are so grateful when you fuck 'em.

The male equivalent of a cougar. Usually in their late thirties, successful, well-dressed, with cash to spend. May have a group of females that hang around for free drinks. As Chris Rock eloquently stated, "Not that old...just a little too old to be in the club."
"I tried to get that gal's number but that silverback swooped in with a bottle of Moet and wrecked my flow."

a state of mind where a person loses all human inhibitions and becomes a silverback gorilla. this is usually triggered when the potential silverback is subjected to intense clownage. indications of this phenomenon include a gorilla looking face and body and movement using all four limbs. extra body hair may appear and the silverback may slur some obscenties and make vulgar gestures. the phase only lasts about one minute, after that the silverback starts to laugh as though trying to play it off. also used as simply 'silver'. the first documented case of silverback was Geoff Hynson at Purdue University.
Oh shit! Geoff's about to go silverback on our ass!
Watch out, that bitch is known to go silver.

Named for the Silver Backed Gorilla, it is a sexual maneuver in which a man, having already orgasmed, jumps up and runs across the room. Once there he lays a turd in his hand and proceeds to fling poo at the female while making monkey sounds and jumping up and down.
That skany ho over there was the one who graciously accepted my Silver Back.
