Earlier this week, the company that publishes the Oxford Dictionary revealed that the following words will be added this year: “binge-watch,” “side-eye,” and—gulp—”amazeballs.” But the strangest word that will show up in the Oxford Dictionary in 2014 is, without a doubt, “YOLO.”

So in light of Drake’s battle cry making the cut this year, we took a look back at some other terms that have been recognized thanks to pop culture.
