“Radio Radio” (sometimes written “Radio, Radio”) is a single by Elvis Costello and The Attractions released in the United Kingdom in October 1978. The song had already appeared on the US version of their second album, This Year's Model, released earlier that year. The song is a protest song concerning the commercialization of radio broadcasts and the restrictions that prevented many punk songs from being played. It includes a reference to the BBC's ban of the Sex Pistols' 1977 single “God Save the Queen”.

On SNL's 25th anniversary show in 1999, Costello burst in on Beastie Boys — 'sabotaging' their performance of “Sabotage” — and they then performed “Radio Radio” together. Costello's own account of this performance appears in the sleeve notes for the 2002 reissue of This Year's Model. In reference to this performance, “Weird Al” Yankovic and his band have launched into a cover of “Radio, Radio” when technical difficulties, such as a server crash, forced him to stop a song midway during a live performance. On 16 January 2012, indie rock musician St. Vincent performed a version of her song “Cheerleader” on Conan, before which she started with a cover of “Radio, Radio” stopping seconds later and stating “I'm sorry ladies and gentlemen, there's no reason to play that song.”
