So I did this video as a response to an ask on tumblr regarding the pronunciation of this word, and so did not provide a translation, because it was on my blog. I have seen "Backpfeifengesicht" translated in various places as "a face that cries out to be hit," "a face in need of a fist," "one who would benefit from a fist to the face," etc.

My credentials: I'm a native German speaker living in the United States. I've never heard this word actually used by a German speaker, outside of the band Die Ärtzte in their song "Backpfeifengesicht."

In conclusion: This word is ridiculous.
