Vulture is as sorry as you are, but in the interest of comprehensiveness, it is our duty to inform you that Ice Cube has given the final word on those competing "Good Day" analyses. When we asked the man himself back in January, he responded (through his publicist) with a mysterious "Nice try."  Moviefone got him to elaborate, and it turns out he meant it as a "Nice try on even trying to dissect that." He goes on: "You know — it's a song. It's a fictional song. It's basically my interpretation of what a great day would be … I don't think you can pinpoint the day." The bloggers who argued for January 20, 1992, and November 30, 1988, shouldn't feel too bad, though, because they weren't totally wrong. Admits Ice Cube: "I think I had a good day on both of those days. You know."
