The 20-year-old chose to misspell the word by adding a “z” instead of an “s” and writing it in all caps. So what does it mean? Sure, most people have heard of bangers and mash, the British dish of sausage and mash potatoes, but that’s most likely not what the twerking starlet was going for.
According to Urban Dictionary, a banger is a song that is “unbelievably awesome.” There’s also a second meaning: “An intense party, which involves large amounts of drinking, beer pong, and plenty of skanks to grind on. Always leaving the house a total mess.”
A third meaning is a girl with “an attractive body,” but it is doubtful Cyrus would dedicate her album to her fit bod. Even less likely, but also another meaning for banger according to Urban Dictionary, is an “old, dilapidated, worn-out car or less commonly, van.”
