Used to mean something's cool. Popularized in the 1970s by radicals who commonly believed their communications were wiretapped, "the bomb" was said to be a trigger word that would call special attention to their communication. Hence, adding it to the end of a story would cause the story to be read by intelligence agencies
Yo, check out this youtube vid. It's the bomb.

A weapon in the possession of the United States, powerful enough to achieve anything in the government's wildest dreams and wipe cities off the map. Has only been used a couple of times sixty-odd years ago and we all know how that ended. If they ever feel the inclination to use it again we are all up shit creek without a paddle.
I dunno why we haven't just used the bomb on Eye-rack yet, save us the trouble and shut 'em up for good.
