An overused adjective intended to denote something as "cool" or "great" but instead winds up meaning "lame." This is actually a reflection of the lameness of person using the word, the degree of which is directly proportionate to difference between the user's perspective of the so-called awesome object / person / situation and that of a reasonably sober, well-informed observer.
"Bono is awesome."
"This pizza is awesome" (when the pizza in question comes from a food court at the airport)

Something Americans use to describe everything.
Oh wow it's just awesome

A 'sticking plaster' word used by Americans to cover over the huge gaps in their vocabulary. It is one the three words which make up most American sentances.
The American vocabulary consists of just three words: Omygod, awesome and shit.

formidable, amazing, heart-stirring, wonderful
Veronica Mars fans are awesome. They love the show so much they hired a plane to fly a message over Hollywood to show their support for renewal.

You.
The meaning of being awesome is you. YOU ARE THE DEFINITION OF AWESOME.

Although it's now used as another word for cool, it literally means something that strucks awe. Something so amazing, one is in awe seeing it. But like I said, nowadays it's used just like cool.
I was struck with awe when I witnessed men landing on the moon. It was awesome.
