Everyone has had a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day. It can be something as minuscule as your socks not matching to spilling coffee all over yourself to your car not starting, resulting in you being late for work. It just happens. That’s life.
For the guys in AJR, they’ve managed to take those crappy days and put an optimist spin on them in their brand new song. On Wednesday (Jan. 30), the New York-founded band unleashed their first new song in over a year; a track titled “100 Bad Days.”
The three-and-a-half-minute song finds the brothers telling the listener about some of their horrible days including a time they got so drunk they broke both their thumbs, putting on a gig and no one showing up, and of course getting their heart broken.
Even with all the bad memories, the Met brothers do reinstate that “100 bad days make 100 good stories” and that’s one motto we can get behind.

The new track comes hot on the heels of the act’s current radio hit “Burn the House Down.” “Burn the House Down” is featured on the deluxe version of AJR’s sophomore album The Click. In addition to “Burn the House Down,” The Click also features the group’s other hit singles “Weak” and “Sober Up.”
As of now, it looks like “100 Bad Days” is a standalone single.
As for the band’s upcoming tour itinerary, the trio will be heading across the pond in mid-February for a couple of shows. Their tour schedule includes a show at Lido in Berlin on Feb. 11, a show at Melkweg in Amsterdam on Feb. 12, and a show at The Garage on Feb. 13 in London. After that, the band will return to the United States for a show at LaureLive on June 9 in Beachwood, Ohio before their appearances at Bonnaroo and Firefly.
