Top Definition
Term for a trendy generation x'er, circa early 1990s, who was into skater, tie-dye revival, coffee house lounge, or slacker-poet counter-cultures. Created by combining the skater term "rad" (short for "radical," and meaning essentially "cool") with the suffix -nik, as in "beatnik." Now quite passe.
Chad is just a sad 38 year old radnik who relives his youth with occasional amusement park bungee jumps, and his videotape collection of "Melrose Place" episodes and Ethan Hawke movies, and Nirvana CDs.
