まくる is a grammar point used to indicate that an action is done with reckless abandon.

Today whilst browsing Twitter I came across an interesting verb suffix I had never seen before – (まく)

まくる follows a verb’s masu stem and is used to indicate that an action is done with reckless abandon. In the example from twitter you can image someone playing guitar energetically.

Here are some more examples:

  • 学生は一晩中さわぎまくった。
  • 少年はゴールに向かって走りまくった。
  • 休みの日は、カラオケで歌いまくっていました。
