WELCOME TO THE IMPROVED HOME OF THE CROSSROADS!

Bad Radio was a semi-progressive/funk/rock band of the late 1980s from San Diego, California. Though they never put out an album on a major record label, they recorded a self produced and marketed 4-song cassette, a widely-bootlegged demo tape, and were a popular club act in Southern California. At the peak of their success in 1989, they received radio airplay on local San Diego rock stations and even won that year's "Battle of California Originals," a battle of the bands put on by San Diego radio station 91X.

Since the band's breakup, the members have gone on to other projects and to greater fame. Most interest in Bad Radio today originates from fans of Pearl Jam, whose vocalist, Eddie Vedder, once sang for, informally managed, and promoted Bad Radio. These fans, in their search for material from Pearl Jam members, have made the once-forgotten demo recordings a hot commodity and rekindled interest in this unique and original band.
