I was unaware that the word Epic was considered slang.
Last time I heard, it has been used to describe things that are extraordinary since really old times.

Then again, English is not my first language.

I use epic to make fun of the word epic. Occasionally I use it instead of "awesome", but yeah.

How about "Where you at?" Would that be considered slang?

Ending a sentence in "at" bothers me, but it's not considered slang unless it's intentionally incorrect grammar.

People describing food as "fire".
People using "beast" as an adjective. It's a damn noun.
Nerds' overuse of "epic".

Lots of censorship here...

This. So this.
I also have a particular dislike for the word (if it can even qualify as one) 'legit'.

When people verbally speak text abbreviations (my little sister does it and it bugs the hell out of me). Examples: brb, lol, kk, and so on. Also, swag. In my opinion it's one of the most irritating and stupid slang terms I've heard in a long time. And when I say swag, I mostly am referring to using it as an adjective ("That's so swag"), not as bad when it's a noun ("They were giving out some awesome swag").

@Morphtroid and @3Dash - While it may be a word, I still find its use very grating.
I find that most words that are considered slang or trendy bug me. That's probably because a few people I know never learned that repeating a joke or phrase over and over again kills the fun in it.

That's scary. Real scary. ._. (shudder)
And I do agree that swag is annoying.

Boom. Backlog.

Well it feels pretty stupid that the word 'Sick' has become a new way to say 'Cool'. At least when using the word cool the connotation was obvious - with the word sick it literally could mean something disgusts you or that you enjoy it. YOLO is generally overused and out of context as well, so it's on my list.
