"One Big Holiday"

"One Big Holiday" is a song by American rock band My Morning Jacket and is featured on their 2003 album It Still Moves. It is also featured on the band's 2006 live concert CD and DVD Okonokos. It is perhaps their most well-known song, behind "I'm Amazed".

Despite a lack of radio airplay the track has achieved some notoriety, which could be the result of several solid live performances, most notably on Late Night with Conan O'Brien as well as several performances at the Bonnaroo Music Festival. Its signature guitar riff and the lyrics, telling the story of the band being "discovered", continue to make it a fan favorite and staple of live performances.

The song has made appearances on several soundtracks, most notably the 2007 film The Lookout and the 2006 film Stick It. The song also was featured in episode 6, season 4 of the Fox medical drama House.

The song is a playable track in Guitar Hero 5.

Fellow Kentucky band Fifth on the Floor covered the song on their 2013 album Ashes & Angels.
