THE ROCK SONG OF THE DAY IS: BON JOVI - HAVE A NICE DAY

"Have A Nice Day", by Bon Jovi
"Have a Nice Day" is Bon Jovi's first single off the 2005 album Have a Nice Day.

It was first performed at the 2004 American Music Awards, where an incomplete version of the song was played. The final version of the song was first performed in full at the Philadelphia Live 8 concert on July 2, 2005, and released worldwide as a single the following month. It was written by Jon Bon Jovi, Richie Sambora, and John Shanks.

"Have A Nice Day" charted at #2 in Sweden, #6 in the United Kingdom, #7 in Germany and in Italy, #8 in Australia, #8 in Finland, #10 in Switzerland, #10 in Japan, #53 in the United States (Billboard Hot 100) and #38 on the US Mainstream Rock Tracks chart.

The music video was directed by Eric Hirshberg and produced by Janice Biggs and John O'Grady. The music video of Have A Nice Day begins when the band arrives in a GMC Yukon in front of a crowd of the fans. Jon draws a smiley on the album cover of the corresponding album for one of the fans in the crowd. The guy takes a photo of the album cover with his mobile phone and sends it to all his friends. Soon the red face pops everywhere. We see Jon, Richie, Tico and David in New York throughout the video. After the second verse, we see Bon Jovi performing at Irving Plaza. At the end of the video we see Bon Jovi leaving with a helicopter.
