    Does someone want to explain what it means? I used to think it was just bad english, but at this point, I dont think thats the case.

    "We about to set the roof on fire"


    "The loof(roof lol Himchan) is on fire"


    "The roof is on fire"


    Unless they all suck at english, I'm missing something here.​

    The place is lit and people are going crazy. Like an insane amount of energy when people are together, partying or dancing and drinking. At least here. I don't know @Vikki if Russia would be different but that's what it means in this area.

    EDIT- Oh Ren's back. :dancer:

    Lol I live in the US, not Russia. It's a common phrase in the US? Or are you from another English speaking country?

    I have usually seen it being used for parties or such, an expression for things getting exciting and hot and all that.

    How have you never heard that term? Just sorta means the energy is enough to set the roof on fire, like at a party if there's a good vibe going.

    Okay apparently some of my brain has left me because I swore you said you were in Russia. Ignore me, I drink a lot. I live in Los Angeles. Lots of stupid people here.

    Oh and I didn't edit fast enough but your sig looks just lovely again. :)

    I don't even know, either it isn't used that often in this part of the US or I haven't been to enough parties (thats probably it).

    I was born in Russia and I was in Russia for a month visiting relatives this year, so that was probably why you thought that.And thank you. :)

    It's been a part of a ton of songs in the US, too. Off the top of my head I know it's used in 50 Cent's In Da Club, Nelly's Hot In Herre, etc.

    I usually only listen to either kpop or rock/metal music, and not many of the songs I listened to were about partying tbh. Plus I rarely understand what they say in English. :oops:

    If it makes you feel any better, it all probably ends up tracking back to this song from 1984:

    So now you know.
