Bad Channels is a 1992 American science fiction spoof Direct-to-video film, produced by Full Moon Features and released by Paramount Home Video. It is about two aliens (Cosmo & Lump) who invade a radio station with the intention of capturing female humans, by using radio broadcasts. The hero is a DJ forced to combat the aliens alone when listeners think he is joking about the invasion.

A semi-sequel was released in the form of Dollman vs. Demonic Toys, a crossover film featuring characters from Dollman, Demonic Toys and Bad Channels. The film also has its own soundtrack composed and performed by Blue Öyster Cult.
