- "Finally, there IS an alternative. The home of Modern Rock. This is a revolution. Guitars, nihilistic hedonism, and telling the elder generation to go screw themselves. Nobody has done this before. We are original thinkers. We are free. Sage leads the navel gazing; she is a remarkable talent."
- ―GTA San Andreas Website
Radio X (referred to as Radio:X in its logo) is a radio station in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas that plays alternative rock, grunge, hard rock and alternative metal. It is hosted by Sage (voiced by Jodie Shawback).
The station's host, Sage, is an escaped mental patient who holds extremely pessimistic world views. A proud member of Generation X, she is very outspoken against the previous generation and constantly speaks her views on air between songs.

- This station appears to have been renamed to Channel X between the events of GTA San Andreas and GTA V, though Channel X plays punk and hardcore as opposed to the alternative rock and grunge of Radio X.
- This is further proven by one of the Channel X stingers, which says "We've been Radio X for too long!", implying that the station was previously known as Radio X.
- The "X" in Radio X is reference to Generation X, the generation born between the mid-1960s and early-1980s.
- The station is the default station when the player enters an Andromada, Buffalo, PCJ-600, or Vortex.
- "Head Like a Hole", originally by Nine Inch Nails, was covered by A.F.I. and is featured as a bonus track to the 2-CD soundtrack compilation set, even though it's not featured in-game. The original Nine Inch Nails version of the song would most likely be featured on Radio X, given the genre of the song and station.
- L7's "Pretend We're Dead" plays at the beach party in the mission Life's a Beach.
- Rage Against the Machine's "Killing in the Name" is played while the player takes a girlfriend on a bad restaurant date. This song was removed from the re-released version of the game and the "successful date" jingle plays instead, which comes as confusing and ironic given the context.
- Living Colour's "Cult of Personality" is featured during Stadium Events.
