Powter's 'Bad Day'

'Bad Day' is currently the top song in the iTunes music store and the song all of America hears when contestants learn they have been voted off 'American Idol.' Not bad for a track off of an album that was made for $6,000.

Daniel Powter never had any aspirations to "be a big pop guy." He says, "For me it was mostly about trying to get on some sort of distribution, being able to get in front of people and play music and tour."

Be sure to check out clips from the song's video featuring 'The O.C.'s' Samaire Armstrong.
