The term "dimebag" originated in the UK in 1971 as cockney rhyming slang for "crime bag". This was effective for confusing the constabulary (pigs) in three ways: 1.) Before the advent of effective international communication networks, the word "dime" was relatively unknown there; 2.) That's not how cockney rhyming slang works; and 3.) The term "crime bag" was not in use prior to this.
