Important Words that become Impotent

I have become saddened by the overuse of some words.... words that used to have meaning to me.... cool words like "elite".  I hear it so much now that by my understanding of the definition, it is by definition no longer elite.  Other words that I now tend to ignore as they seem to be more hype and background noise than actual information exchanging vehicles... are:  new; best.  I found this list of the 10 most overused words in metal journalism, and found it to be interesting.  I didn't know what "metal journalism" was until I checked out the site.  I guess that phrase isn't overused.
