Groovy and Rad

The words groovy and rad seem to be used by people in certain cultures but are almost unambiguously good things.  I don't think I've ever heard them used sarcastically.  People might say "well that's cool" to mean that it's not cool.  Some people say "have a nice day" to mean F you.

I have heard alternate uses for groovy.  It can be a synonym for granola (the adjective, not the noun).  If you can recall a time you heard either groovy or rad used in a bad way, please let me know in the comments.

This post partially inspired by Millencolin's song "Fox."
