Horrible band consisting of a bunch of retards. 60% of the reason they suck
is because they suck dicks on the side to pay rent, the other 40% is that they're Canadian. Not saying all Canadians suck, just the semi-sucessful ones.
Char: Oh my god! Metric rocked!
Ben: No, Metric is gay, besides, I hear they suck live.

Chill, euphoric, awesome. Better than the usual. Something similar to the feeling of an awesome rave.

Probably drawn from the idea that the metric system is "better" than other systems.
A$AP Rocky: How was that young party last night?

Lil Wayne: Yo dawggg, that shit was metric AF.

1. A system of measurement that makes more sense, is easier to comprehend and is standardized such that it is awesome to use.
2. An adjective that describes something as making more sense, better, and/or more awesome than any other possibility.

A modifier meaning "even more than"

Most commonly used with buttload, assload, or shitload.

The modifier 'metric' has been co-opted from the term 'metric ton,' which is 205 pounds more than a 'ton.'

So, an 'assload' is a lot, but a 'metric assload' is even more.
A pipe broke, and now there's a metric buttload of water in my basement!
