1. An overused, stale word that doesn't mean anything anymore, which is primarily used by critics and jerks to describe things or people they can't even begin to understand.
2. The most pathetic word one can possibly use in a verbal critique.
some guy: "Gawd, Radiohead is so PRETENTIOUS."
me: "Where'd you find that word?"
some guy: "Oh, there was this really great critic who used it in a review-"
me: "Do you even know what it means?"
some guy: "Uh..."
me: "If you don't know what it means, then why use it?"
