Led lights and the radio?

I just put on some fancy new led cube lights and a led bar, now i have an interesting issue whenever I turn them on my fm radio goes all staticky. I'm wondering if anyone here can tell me why it's doing that and maybe how I could fix it.
Any assistance is help full

Sounds like it could be a bad ground.

Sounds like the lights don't have an RFI filter built in.. What brand are they?

Not familiar with them, but I can't find any info on their site saying that they have built in RFI filters. That's usually the problem, but it could also be a bad ground. Make sure the ground is tight and on bare metal. Sand the paint off if you have to so it's a good contact point. If that doesn't work you may try to reroute the wiring if it's anywhere near the antenna cable behind the dash.
