who sang the 80's song "radioactive"?

"Radioactive" was sung by vocalist Paul Rodgers who also wrote it in 1984.

The song was performed by band, The Firm considered a supergroup as it was comprised by lead guitarist Jimmy Page of Led Zeppelin drummer Chris Slade of Uriah Heep and Manfred Mann's Earth Band and fretless bassist Tony Franklin. Paul Rodgers himself, was a part of Free and Bad Company.

Later, Tony Franklin would go on to be part of Quiet Riot. Slade would later join AC/DC.
