If you describe something such as a saying or an image as hackneyed, you think it is no longer likely to interest, amuse or affect people because it has been used, seen, or heard many times before. Power corrupts and absolute power absolutely corrupts. That's the old hackneyed phrase, but it's true. a hackneyed phrase is boring and does not have much meaning because it has been used so often (hackney (16-19 centuries), from hackney (14-20 centuries), probably from Hackney, area in London, England where horses were once kept)
