Radioactive Records was an American record label. It was formed as a joint venture between talent manager Gary Kurfirst (who managed such acts as the Ramones, Big Audio Dynamite, Deee-Lite and Deborah Harry) and MCA Records, and it is now out of business.

Acts on the label had included: Live, Black Grape, Traci Lords, the Ramones, Big Audio Dynamite, Star 69, Dig, Angelfish and Goodbye Mr. Mackenzie (the last two featuring Shirley Manson who appeared in Garbage courtesy of this record label). The band Pray TV from Melbourne, Australia and British group Cooler Than Jesus (featuring Simon White who later played in Brit-pop band Menswear) were also signed by the label in the early 1990s.

Acts that had been licensed to the record company in the States included Londonbeat (from Anxious Records UK).
