rad- short for radical, which meant cool, a term that is still used today by a populace of individuals that never really grew out of the 80's scene and still believe that other terms are cool such as "hey dude" or worse "dudette" and even "totally." Beware of these individuals for they are probably still sporting a Madonna or Micheal Jackson glove on one hand with the fingers cut out of it, watching movies such as Pretty in Pink or The Breakfast Club, and own a very colorful collection of wrist or ankle warmers.

A term used to describe a punk who doesn't restrict him or herself to one genre or another, though most likely has a certain preference. Describes one who is completely devoted to music; holding it and its ideals above all else. It is a state of such complete awesomeness that when someone achieves it, it will no longer matter to them.
