All Day is the fifth album by American mash up musician Girl Talk, released by the record label Illegal Art on November 15, 2010 as a free download. The album consists of 372 overlapping samples of other artists' songs.

All Day was released as one seamless 71-minute file and as 12 separate tracks, available in MP3 and FLAC.[1] As with prior Girl Talk albums, the Illegal Art website states that All Day was "intended to be listened to as a whole," but was "broken up into individual tracks only for easier navigation."[2]

The album, segmented into twelve "episodes", is used as the soundtrack to the 2011 feature-length Jacob Krupnick dance video, "Girl Walk//All Day".[3]

All Day was well received by most music critics upon its release. On the review aggregate site Metacritic, the album has a score of 79 out of 100, indicating "Generally positive reviews."[18] It was released as a free download without prior advertising.[19]

The 372[20] samples in the album were described as "instantly recognizable hooks"[21] Reviewers frequently praised the innovation of the music style, saying that it is "like nothing you've ever heard,"[22] "[rehabilitation for] disposable pop,"[23] among those "tricks [that] just don’t get old,"[24] with appeal "first for the sampled songs themselves, [and] second for the thrill of the novelty of early mash-ups,"[19] and that "the entire mega-mash-up is stupendously danceable."[25]
