    In other words, is there a word with the opposite meaning of cool?

    Lame
    Dorky
    Square
    Nerdy
    Geeky
    Bunk

    The opposite of being cool is having fun and not giving a ++++ about what other people think...oh, wait...maybe that IS cool..?

    Exactly. The opposite of cool is trying hard to be cool, as so many -- especially hipster doofi -- do.

    In George Orwell's '1984', one guys job was destroying words and simpilifying the language. In order to reduce the number of words, 'un' was added to a word to mean its opposite. The opposite of cool would be uncool.

    Seems to me there was a song back in the 80's by Huey Lewis that went something like...."cool is rule, but sometimes bad is bad".

    Modern country musicians who sing about driving their kids around in a mini-van and other assorted cornball subject matter.

    I don't know about that. I probably wouldn't like the songs you're referring to, but at least they address real things in real people's lives, instead of recycling party fantasies or b.s. cliches about honky tonks and hellhounds on one's tail.

    The PC term for not cool is "cool challenged".

    If I'm reading this right that would make me cool.

    Uncontrolled ambition, the kind that makes people go for jobs they can't do... the ultimate "bad cheque".
