A favourite saying of a broadcast journalist and Londoner at a prestigious journalism training school.

This term is now adopted, and used interjectionally, between groups of males engaged in drinking circles post-newsroom.

The term "Bang on!" can substitute any verb, noun or adjective, and is often used completely out of context.

"Bang on!" can also replace song lyrics.

Usage of the term must be reciprocated by all members of the contextual group, or its effects are nullified.

Risky usage of the term "Bang on!" can result in suspicion. Therefore, users must adopt caution and awareness of their surroundings.

If a person uses said term without prior knowledge of its origins, social taboo may follow.
"That is Bang on!"
