Since when did Hell become an adjective?
"Dat was hella sick"
by Raddichio February 15, 2005
Modifier, meaning either "very much" or "a large number of." A Bay Area (specifically East Bay) regionalism that dates from the mid-1970s, if not earlier, later popularized by the No Doubt song "Hella Good."
"I met this girl and she was hella fine and I tried to talk to her, but I'd drunk hella beers and was hella wasted." -- Actual quote spoken by East Bay high school student.

San Francisco Bay Area Slang. First became widely used during the early 1980's.

Became more mainstream after the band No Doubt's song entitled, "Hella Good" was released.

The term is shortened from "hell of" and most likely derived from "a hell of a lot of"

The word is hella sick, it originated in Northern California in the bay area. Its used for hella things, you can use it for pretty much anything, just read the conversation:
Me: Dude, that party was hella sick last night.!
Tom: I know, there was hella people!
Me: I know you got hella drunk dude
Tom: I passed out hella early, when I woke up this morning I felt hella bad bro. I threw up hella times
Me: Dude you didn't even drink that much! I had hella beers and was up hella late!
Tom: Fuck you dude your hella annoying!
