Program Notes

Radioactive is a song by American rock band Imagine Dragons for their major-label debut EP Continued Silence and later on their debut studio album, Night Visions (2012), as the opening track. Musically, Radioactive is an electronic rock and alternative rock song with elements of dubstep that contains cryptic lyrics of apocalyptic and revolutionist themes.

Radioactive received two Grammy Awards nominations for Record of the Year and Best Rock Performance, winning the latter.
