I like God.'s definition of uber (submitted Jan. 2, 2004), although I know of an earlier reference than the Dead Kennedy's "California über alles" song. In the late '70s Saturday Night Live had a skit with John Belushi that posed the question "what would've happened if Superman emerged from Nazi Germany?" Answer: he would've been Uberman.
Look! Up in the sky! It's Überman!

Term with literal meaning of "above" in German. Brought to the mainstream in the early 80's by hardcore American punk band, the Dead Kennedys when using the term in the anti-Californian government song "California Uber Alles", which is a take off the German motto of "Deustchland Uber Alles", which translates to "Germany above all." The term was picked up in their native California stomping grounds by the typical surfers and "punks" and extended from there to many teenagers, the majority of which use the term online.
That was uber-lame.

"über" is the German word for "above" or "over". It does not literally translate as "super" in English, but this is how it is usually translated in compounds.

Übermensch - Superman

"über" is the German word for "above" or "over". Is does not mean "super" what many Americans tend to use "über" for.

1. German word for "above" or "over". Although frequently seen spelled as uber, the correct spelling "über".

2. More modernly this word has become mainstream in American pop culture as an adjective to add emphasis to the impressiveness of something.

2. über-cool, über-babe, über-hot, etc.

i.e.: Heide Klum is an über-babe.
