"Lonely Day" is the second single from the 2005 album Hypnotize by Armenian American metal band System of a Down. It was written by guitarist Daron Malakian, who also provides lead vocals on this track. The song received a nomination for Best Hard Rock Performance at the 49th Annual Grammy Awards.[1]

The song is featured in the 2007 film Disturbia, as well as the film's trailer; however, it is not included in the film's soundtrack. Upon its release, it was rumored that Malakian had written the song as a tribute to his brother, who died in a fire when they were young. This could be proven because in the music video, everything is on fire.[2]
