Wasted Days is an album by the ska/reggae band The Slackers, released on February 21, 2001 on Hellcat Records. Unlike other releases by the Slackers, the songs on the vinyl LP version of the album differ significantly from their counterparts on the CD release; additionally, there are several tracks unique to the vinyl release. The CD edition of the album features a cover of the Bon Jovi song, "Wanted Dead or Alive".

Artwork[edit]

The album concept is that of a comic book. The girl on the cover (Miki Stroman) is reading a comic entitled Wasted Days. The band is featured on the inside jacket speaking with dialog boxes like that of a comic book. With the exception of the song titles, the artwork for both the CD and vinyl versions is the same. Photo credit belongs to Denny Renshaw and the Wasted Days comic was created by Adrienne Vander Ploeg.
