    I've never heard badass pronounced any way other than bad-ass...
     
  4. Maybe it's pronounced different in France...

    "I don't know because I don't use that bridge"

    Why the hell do you care then? Its pronounced bad-ass. Plus you're in the wrong forum

    I also find it quite funny that the OP has been on the forum much longer than anyone else in this thread, yet he posts this ridiculous question, in the wrong forum.

    I have! I had a customer that said Ba Dass!

    But yeah, Bad Ass. When the original Leo Quan guitar version of the Badass came out, in the ad it was posed on a baby's bottom.

    LOl. I remember back in the 70's when bay dass was used by some as a way to help talk parents in to letting them buy one. If one had parents who believed saying something like bad ass, was just not acceptable. You'd call it bad ass around one another, but bay dass like SGD mentioned when stuffy oldesters where around. Lol.

    Yep, it's bad ass. It's an American slang expression, it means "really good." :D

    What a 70's company name that is, right up there with "Boogie" amplifiers.

    Depends on if you are playing in church or not. If the pastor asks, It's named after a renowned metallurgist in Europe named Leo Quan BaDass.
