rad
A popular misconception by the 21st century kids that "rad" is short for "radical", whilst it can be, it is more popular with ex-hippies from the original counterculture of the sixties to stand for "rock and drugs", ergo, rad. Though, it can still be used in context as, "that party was really rad," but therefore implying that there was rock and drugs at the party.
L: What ever happen to just plain sex, drugs, n rock n roll?
B: I don't really know why they left the 's' out, I guess you could say rads.

Rads.

Rad
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.
Rad is for the kids whom Music=Life. See Hardcore Bandana
