Several definitions given here are correct in connecting the term to radical but incorrect in the date of origin. Being old enough, I can attest that it was used at least as far back as the seventies.
"The Ninja Turtles never invented a single term. To suggest so is not rad but very uncool."

It is rare to use. It's a cool slang word from the 1970s/80s. It means "awesome", "exceptional", "cool". It's something American surfers or skateboarders would say.
