The word "Bomb" can also mean something is very cool or great. Such as "That band we saw tonight was the bomb!"

True but we have to note that when we bomb a test or something, bomb is a verb. If a band is the bomb, then bomb is a noun (and normally gets 'the').

Good use of 'bombed. One correction in there:
