Radio 4 is an American Dance-punk based in Brooklyn, New York. Formed in 1999, they claim their music is "made in New York, is about New York, and sounds like New York".

The band is a five-piece, comprising Anthony Roman (Vocals/Bass) (formerly of Garden Variety), David Milone (Vocals/Guitar) (who replaced original guitarist/singer Tommy Williams in 2005), Gerard Garone (Keyboards), Greg Collins (Drums), and P.J. O'Connor (Percussion), until April 2008 when Gerard Garone left the band.

The band was originally a trio, comprising Anthony Roman, Tommy Williams and Greg Collins.

They cite a variety of influences, including Gang of Four, Mission of Burma, Primal Scream and Zero Zero, though their lively punk sound combined with their militant political stance inevitably draws a strong comparison with The Clash.

Their name comes from a Public Image Ltd. song from that group's second album, which is itself a reference to BBC Radio 4.
