A reflexive expression made by musicians and music lovers - particularly those involved in Black American music scenes (funk, jazz, hip hop, etc.) - to show appreciation for a particularly stanky (i.e. funky) beat, solo, riff or bassline.

Not the face made by white, suburban women whose cats have shat up the litter box. (See Taylor Jones' blog post...)

In the context of music: A word for the facial expression that someone will use when they enjoy a particular aspect of music.

Characterised by either a scrunched up face, narrowed eyes and closed mouth
Or loose and droopy, as if their face was just melted off.
This is usually paired with a head or neck that is "bopping" up and down to the beat of the song. The whole body can be pulsing with the groove of a song, it doesnt have to be just 1 body part as each case of stankface is unqiue and every person has a unique one

E. G. A really funky bass line

Any form of music can trigger a stank face. It doesnt have to be the genre of funk (frequent case). It is entirely personal as to ehat someone finds groovy.
"Jeez man, that Bass hit so hard it gave me stank face."

"The fact you have a stank face right now shows me you like the song."
