Really to the highest degree.

Originated in Salem, MA, because Salem is the historic town with the Witch trials. The witches were wicked.

Wicked is used commonly by Bostonians and you really only hear it around New England.


- Must be used directly before an adjective that is the last adjective of the sentence, phrase, or thought.

- If you wanted to say "That was wicked awesome/good!" the substitute "That was wicked pissah!" works just as well, but you hear it more often in the actual city of Boston.

- You must be from New England or have New England blood to be allowed to say it.

- YOU CANNOT HAVE WICKED BE YOUR LAST WORD! "That was wicked!" does not work. If you wanted to say that, you would say "That was wicked pissah!"

- "Wicked pissah!" can also be used by itself instead of saying that was.

- You never say correct grammar when saying wicked good. You never say "wicked well". You say "wicked good" or "wicked awesome."

In the city of boston, you hear it most commonly used as "Wicked pissah!", but in the 'burbs and farther away, it is more used in the phrase "... wicked awesome!!"

The farther from Boston you are, the less you hear it. If you are a New Englander and are outside New England and hear it, go up to the guy and start talking bout the Red Sox. He will be from New England almost every time.
Some examples:

Excitement: The game 7 when we beat the Canucks was wicked awesome! OR That is wicked cool!

Taste: Regina's Pizza is wicked good!

Weather: It's wicked cold out!

Description: Boston is a wicked fun city. OR The Red Sox are doing wicked good this year.

Size: The Green Monster is wicked big!

This definition originated in Boston -

Very, extremely

Must have adjective after it

meaning "it's very cool"

Originated in and around Boston, MA.
1. Another way to say 'really' or 'very' 2. Great. It can be used either before an adjective (ex. 1) or as an adjective itself(ex. 2). It cannot be used before a sopisticated adjective like "admirable" or "excellent". If you aren't from New England, don't say it or you'll sound stupid. Wicked stupid.

Note: Don't use the second definition. It sounds REALLY lame.
Definiton 1 examples:
"That was wicked awesome!"
"I'm wicked lonely, nobody's online."

Definition 2 examples:
"That concert was wicked."

In 1966 & '67 we used the word "wicked" all the time in Imperial Beach, California, a Southern California coastal suburb of San Diego, to describe something totally hot, awesome, cool, bitchin, etc.

Contrary to Sholto from London's belief, "wicked" did not originate in England in the mid 1990's. Take it from an old broad, Wicked has been used in the Boston area since time began basically. Used as an adverb in place of very, really, etc. to emphasize something. True Bostonians (All New Englanders may be included in this, after all, we all root for the "wicked amazing" Patriots)always use an adjective after employing the use of wicked.
Wicked stupid!
Wicked retahded!
Wicked awesome!
Wicked cool!

Tedy Bruschi is wicked awesome! He came back from a wicked bad stroke and then went out and kicked some wicked big ass with the rest of the wicked amazing Patriots!
