Guess which one of these is not a clearly defined Gen M/D (Millennial/Digital) acronym?

On Facebook, I replied to a posting by a 20-something friend of mine. He had put up a link to an app that told you what member of the Bible you would be by answering some (tongue in cheek) questions. I tried it and couldn't get it to I replied...Your App is Beat.

So, for all those born after 1980, we 60s kids (kidz?) used to say something is "beat" as in broken, borked, non-functional.

My friend, asked...BEAT? I looked at his response and realized...he thought I was saying B E A T and he wanted to know what this new term meant before he was entirely de-coolified.
