An amazing, yet violent (thus very fun to watch), football player who currently plays for Manchester United and England. The best young talent to ever play in England's football pitches.

To lose one's temper and commit a violent act, especially during a sporting event.
I thought he'd fouled me so I turned around and did a Rooney on him.

I came home, smelling of beer and covered with lipstick, and the wife went Rooney on me.

Awesome band hailing from California. Their first cd has an awesome sound reminiscent of the Beach Boys...however, their second cd is more poppy and a bit different. Still awesome though.

Band Members:
Robert Schwartzman (main vocals/guitar)
Taylor Locke (guitar)
Ned Brower (drums)
Louis Stephens (keyboard)
Matt Winter (bass)
Person 1: Did you see Rooney play on their summer tour?
Person 2: Yeah, it was awesome. I really liked their cover of "Helter Skelter."
