What does Rox mean?

‘Rox’ is slang for ‘Rocks’

If you witness something amazing, like your Uncle Bob busting out some killer moves at his 80th birthday, you might exclaim, “Uncle Bob rox! I only wish I could move like that!” The term ‘rox’ is a fun and casual way to express that something is awesome or cool.

‘Rox’ is a short form of the word ‘rocks,’ which started being used as a verb to denote something excellent or cool back in the 1960s. Though ‘rox’ was used by a few people over the years, it really took off in the late 90s and early 2000s when texting and online messaging became a regular part of our lives.

Today, people of all ages use ‘rox’ to describe anything or anyone they think is fantastic. You might use it to talk about your favorite basketball player, praise a singer for their latest track, or express your excitement over a great movie. So next time you want to say something is really impressive, remember, it doesn’t just rock, it rox!
