"Found a Way" is a song by American singer-songwriter Drake Bell. It was written by Bell and Michael Corcoran in 2003 and was used as the theme song for the Nickelodeon television show Drake & Josh, in which Bell starred from 2004 to 2007. The song is track 2 on Bell's debut album Telegraph, it was released as a two track promotional CD single sometime in 2007 it contained two versions of Found A Way the acoustic version taken from Bell's second studio album It's Only Time in 2006 and a studio and acoustic crossover version

The song was first featured on the soundtrack for Drake & Josh, and was also included on the Nickelodeon Kids Choice CD [1] but was entitled I Found a Way. Although the title of the song remained I Found a Way in the Drake & Josh television end credits, it was later changed to Found a Way on Bell's debut studio album, Telegraph.

It became Bell's signature song and started his official musical career, and is often referred to[by whom?] as his magnum opus. In his second studio album, It's Only Time, a softer rearranged version of the song was featured with the title "Found A Way (Acoustic)". The music video for the song premiered on Nickelodeon in the fall of 2004 and is available as an extra on the DVD version of the film Drake & Josh Go Hollywood.

Ariana Grande and Elizabeth Gilles covered the song on The Slap website, the real-life version of the social media site used on the Nickelodeon sitcom Victorious.[2] the video also featured Michael Corcoran playing guitar

It was also covered by Jake Farrow (voice of Rex Powers) in an episode of Victorious using an unreleased Instrumental version of Found A Way [3]
