[[File:Jgr title.png|right|160px]]'''''Jet Set Radio''''' (ジェット セット ラジオ), called '''''Jet Grind Radio''''' in North America, is a video game developed by [[Smilebit]] and published by [[Sega]] for the [[Sega Dreamcast]].

''Jet Set Radio'' is considered to be one of the pioneers of its generation for its use of "cel-shaded" graphics, and its then-original style of gameplay. It is also notable for its soundtrack spearheaded by [[Hideki Naganuma]].
