An abbreviation of 'radical'--a term made popular by the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Still primarily used by people on the West Coast who find words like 'cool', 'awesome', and 'tight' to be tired and overused; 'rad' is generally considered to be a much higher praise than the aforementioned superlatives. Also used as a general expression of awe.
"Those are some rad shoes."
"Oh, RAD."

really cool, but in a more subtle way. as opposed to extreme or awesome. one of the highest compliments you can give someone. being rad is like being cool without having to work for it. it's like a natural coolness.
she seems quiet at frist, but she's actually pretty rad when you get to know her.

these pro skaters have it all wrong, it should be less extreme and more rad, like it was back in the day.

Shortend form of the word radical, a 100% slang word from the 1980's, used mostly in the past by people from Generation-X (people born in the late 60's early 70's) to describe something that's cool.

Apperantly lots teens today are starting to use it as well, most of 'm probably don't even know that it is a 80's slang word and if they do know, they probably are pretending that it's something of their generation.
That's a rad bike you've got.
