    buck = $US

    The word 'bang' is used for alliterative value; it doesn't refer just to noise, but to any increase in noticeability - often used in marketing. The whole expression refers to spending less and getting an improved effect. The Urban Dictionary suggests that it referred originally to defence spending: Urban Dictionary: bang for the buck
