Used to describe something that was really fun or cool.
'That was the jam' is sort of the same thing as 'that was a blast' or 'that was a ball.'
It's pretty much the Jam. That show was the Jam. Etc.

Ann: 'The Jam' rule

Used to describe anything that is awesome.
Used similarly to "it's the shit."
"Hey have you checked out that new mexican restaurant?"
"Yeah, man, it's the jam!"
An extremely superb piece of music
. Songs 10 years and older can be considered to be "The Jam", although The Jam bears no age due to the fact that it remains timeless. Songs under the age of 10 years can sometimes show signs of reaching the maturity level of "The Jam" but are not considered to be "The Jam" for they will be one when it ripens after a decade of appreciation. It is found on many fm radio stations claiming to play: old school, classic rock, r & b, hip-hop, classical, jazz, alternative, country, etc. etc..
