"Radioactive" is a song recorded by American indie rock band Imagine Dragons for their major-label debut EP Continued Silence and later on their debut studio album, Night Visions, as the opening track. "Radioactive" was first sent to radio on April 2, 2012 and again on October 29, 2012 as the third single overall. Musically, "Radioactive" is an indie rock song with elements of electronic rock and dubstep, while containing cryptic lyrics of apocalyptic and revolutionist themes. The song received acclaim from critics who praised the production, lyrics, and vocals, calling it a highlight on the album. Due to heavy rotation on commercials and trailers, the song has reached number three on the US Billboard Hot 100 chart, becoming their first top 10 single as well as breaking the record for slowest ascension to the Top 5 in chart history. As of August 2013, it is the third most-downloaded song in the US of 2013, with sales over 4.1 million (behind Blurred Lines and Thrift Shop) The song has also reached No. 1 in Sweden and in the top 20 in several countries including Australia, Canada, New Zealand, and the United Kingdom, becoming their most successful single to date. "Radioactive" received two Grammy Awards nominations for Record of the Year and Best Rock Performance, winning the latter. This was Imagine Dragons' first time being nominated. During the broadcast, they presented a remix of the song with their Interscope label-mate, rapper Kendrick Lamar. The remix was later released for purchase on iTunes.

Radioactive - Imagine Dragons

[Verse 1]
I'm waking up to ash and dust
I wipe my brow and I sweat my rust
I'm breathing in the chemicals
I'm breaking in, shaping up, then checking out on the prison bus
This is it, the apocalypse
Whoa

[Chorus]
I'm waking up, I feel it in my bones
Enough to make my systems blow
Welcome to the new age, to the new age

Welcome to the new age, to the new age
Whoa, whoa, I'm radioactive, radioactive!
Whoa, whoa, I'm radioactive, radioactive!

[Verse 2]
I raise my flags, don my clothes
It's a revolution, I suppose

We'll paint it red to fit right in
Whoa
I'm breaking in, shaping up, then checking out on the prison bus
This is it, the apocalypse
Whoa

[Chorus]
I'm waking up, I feel it in my bones
Enough to make my systems blow
Welcome to the new age, to the new age
Welcome to the new age, to the new age
Whoa, whoa, I'm radioactive, radioactive!
Whoa, whoa, I'm radioactive, radioactive
!

[Bridge]
All systems go, sun hasn't died
Deep in my bones, straight from inside

[Chorus]
I'm waking up, I feel it in my bones
Enough to make my systems blow
Welcome to the new age, to the new age
Welcome to the new age, to the new age
Whoa, whoa, I'm radioactive, radioactive!
Whoa, whoa, I'm radioactive, radioactive!
