Radio-Activity (German title: Radio-Aktivität) is the fifth studio album by German electronic band Kraftwerk, released in October 1975. The band's first entirely electronic album, it is a concept album organized around the theme of radio communication. To cater to the band's international audience, all releases of the album were bilingual with lyrics in both English and German, the only localised difference being the album and track titles.

A concept album exploring themes of broadcast communications, Radio-Activity marked Kraftwerk's return to more obtuse territory, extensively utilizing static, oscillators, and even Cage-like moments of silence to approximate the sense of radio transmission; a pivotal record in the group's continuing development, the title track - the first they ever recorded in English - is their most fully.

Radioactivity Radioactivity Is in the air for you and me Radioactivity Discovered by Madame Curie Radioactivity Tune in to the melody Radioactivity Is in the air for you and me.

Radio Aktivitat Fur dich und mich in All entsteht Radio Aktivitat Strahlt Wellen zum Empfangsgerat. Radio Aktivitat Wenn's um unsere zukunft geht Radio Aktivitat Fur dich und mich in All entsteht.

The seeds of Kraftwerk's Radio-Activity album were sown when the group came across an issue of Billboard magazine featuring a section listing songs that were most frequently being played on the radio with the heading of "Radio Activity. The title track was the first song recorded by Kraftwerk in English The song plays upon the meaning of its title, with the line "Discovered by Madame Curie" juxtaposed with "Tune. The song was later re-recorded by Kraftwerk for their 1991 album The Mix. It was further remixed, for subsequent single release, by William Orbit and François Kevorkian.
