"100 Years" is a song written and recorded by American recording artist Five for Fighting (John Ondrasik). It was released in November 2003 as the first single from the album The Battle for Everything.
The music video was directed by Trey Fanjoy and premiered in January 10, 2004. It placed at number 30 on VH1's Top 40 Music Video Countdown of 2004, spending 18 weeks on VH1's weekly Top 20 countdown. In the video, images of Ondrasik singing and playing the song at the piano are intercut with fictional, idealized versions of himself as a fifteen-year-old boy, a man in his late forties, and a ninety-nine-year-old man, reflecting the song's lyrics. At the end of the song, Ondrasik meets his older persona.
In December 2004, on the Billboard end-of-the-year music chart, "100 Years" was ranked at number 77 for the year, though it peaked at number twenty-eight. "100 Years" was also the longest running number-one single of the year on the Billboard Hot Adult Contemporary Tracks chart, staying at number-one for 12 non consecutive weeks.
