"Bad Day" is a song by the American rock band Fuel originally released on their second album Something Like Human as the third single.

Written by guitarist Carl Bell, "Bad Day" was written before the band was signed to a major label. The band tried to record a version for their major label debut, but according to lead singer Brett Scallions, "We tried recording 'Bad Day' back when we did the Sunburn album [in 1998] and just didn’t get it right. It was a song that was with us way before we signed on with Sony and Epic."[1]

"Bad Day" was the final single released from Something Like Human and peaked at number 64 on the US Billboard Hot 100 chart that year.
