Definition {Bangover}

nounbangover; plural noun: bangovers

The condition experienced the morning after enthusiastic crowd participation at a rock show. Characterised by the usual symptoms of a hangover combined with scrapes, bruises, aches and pains from being tossed about, slammed into and occasionally stomped on. General usage indicates tinnitus and/or a sore neck from banging one's head.

The Cure

Just like the day after a boozy night out, you need the hair of the dog to get you back on the level ready for another session. It's the same with a bangover. You need more of what you had last night. More rock. More punk. More emo. More hardcore. More metal.

Listen to The Bangover podcast while reading a live review or check out a video interview and you'll soon forget your aches and pains.
