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.[1]

Acts on the label had included: Live, Black Grape, Jane's Addiction, the Ramones, Big Audio Dynamite, Talking Heads, Eurythmics, and Angelfish (Shirley Manson)[2][3] (Manson joined Garbage courtesy of Gary Kurfirst[4]). 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.[5][6]
