Ice Cube Laughs at Your Nerdish Quest for Answers

Posted By on Mon, Mar 5, 2012 at 1:03 PM

Recently, I was excited as a person who loves both trivia and 90's rap to read a blog post that spent an absurd amount of time and effort to discover what day was the subject of the Ice Cube track "It Was a Good Day", but in a new interview, the man himself seems almost intent to destroy the quest for answers entirely. Take that nerds!

The original research shows that it's Jan 20, 1992. Someone else thinks it's Nov 30, 1988.
I think I had a good day on both of those days. You know.

Is this your Carly Simon, "You're So Vain," song? That you'll never admit when it was? Then you'll auction the answer off some day to one guy who, under contract, can't reveal the day?
Nah. You know — it's a song. It's a fictional song. It's basically my interpretation of what a great day would be. Do you know what I'm saying? So, you know, it's a little of this and a little of that. I don't think you can pinpoint the day.

So you're saying it's a collection of good things from multiple days?
It could have been all of those days.

So it's a conglomerate of your perfect day?
Yes.
