What Does “Bing Bong” Mean on TikTok?
For someone from New York, ‘Bing Bong’ must have been a familiar term even before it became viral on the internet. Why? It is because this ‘Bing Bong’ sound is what MTA trains play when they make sure that the riders are clear of the door.
For starters, you must know that the “Bing Bong” trend was bought on TikTok by Sidetalk creators- ‘Jack Bryne and Trent Simonian.’ While explaining why Trent used this sound, he said- “I think we wanted something that worked as a resemblance for New York City.
The MTA train sounds do that job perfectly. Jack added that people tend to relate more to a song or a trend when they associate it with a personal experience. This sound hits back a memory for New York people.
Due to Sidetalk getting popular, a lot of users on TikTok have taken voice lines from the videos and have stitched them up in order to make humorous content. An example of the same can be seen in this video by the user who goes by @lilnasx on TikTok.

It is not just “Bing Bong” but many other slangs living rent-free in people’s minds these days. If you do not know the meaning of the phrase mentioned in the former sentence, you need to go through the list of slang below:
- Cheugy: Pronounced as chew-gee, this slang word is used by millennials for someone who tries too hard to be trendy. As you can notice, this word is open for interpretation. This is what sets it apart and makes it so appealing to youth.
- Ok Boomer: Ok Boomer is what this generation uses to express their anger while putting an end to a debate. It is also used to set baby boomers apart from youngsters to represent the boomers’ close-minded and out-of-touch opinions.
- Tea: When someone sends you a text saying: give me some tea, do not take it to literal terms. It means that they want you to offer them some latest gossip. As the tea is hot, they also wish to gossip hot.
- Rent-free: Living in your mind rent-free. This is what people put in their captions these days. It means that these people believe they are always in your mind. Also, it can be a show, audio, or video stuck in your mind.

Bing Bong in dating represents a sense of excitement. For example, you can use it when your crush says yes.
