"This Is Radio Clash" is a single released by the English punk rock band The Clash in 1981. While it wasn't released on any of their studio albums, it was included in the track listing of their compilations: "The Essential Clash", "The Singles", "Singles Box" and "The Singles (2007)".

"This Is Radio Clash", like their previous single "The Magnificent Seven", is a dub reggae, rap, punk-funk song that was influenced by old school hip hop acts from New York City, like the Sugarhill Gang and Grandmaster Flash & The Furious Five.

The first public performance of the song was on Tom Snyder's "Tomorrow" show in 1981.
