Canadian singer-songwriter DANIEL POWTER become famous with his signature song Bad Day in 2006 and topped the list of One Hit Wonder of the decade by Billboard Magazine. The magazine defined a one-hit-wonder as any act who managed to crack the charts/record sales with their first single then never heard them again.

The song was used in American Idol Season 5 as a 'goodbye song' for the contestant who are voted off every week then eventually went to #01 spot for five weeks.

Powter, who said he has battled drugs and dyslexia in the past, took two years off after "Bad Day" made him famous. He returned last year with a new album Under The Radar, but failed to mimic the success of his first hit.
