"Radio brennt" ('Radio burns') is a punk song by Die Ärzte. It was the seventh track and the third single from their 1987 album Ist das alles? (13 Höhepunkte mit den Ärzten). On the kid's shirt on the cover is Die Ärzte's mascot Sweet Gwendoline.

The song references Falco, Chris de Burgh, Madonna and the song "Geronimo's Cadillac" by Modern Talking.

The maxi remix of the song features an intro, where a couple is making out and then the girl turns on the radio. Then a rap song begins, which is separately featured on Live - Nach uns die Sintflut. There, it is titled "Radio Rap".

Farin has said in the booklet of Das Beste von kurz nach früher bis jetze, that this maxi version is his all-time favourite.
