"Every Day Is Exactly the Same" is the third single by American industrial rock band Nine Inch Nails from their album With Teeth. It is the twenty-first official Nine Inch Nails release. The commercial single was released on April 4, 2006 as an EP. It was also billed as the companion remix disc to With Teeth[citation needed], much to the chagrin of Trent Reznor[citation needed]. The song went for adds on R&R's alternative rock chart in November 2005.

The radio single reached #1 on the Billboard Modern Rock singles chart in the Modern Rock Tracks category and #12 in the Mainstream Rock Tracks category. The song also reached number one on the Canadian Singles Chart, and received a nomination for Best Hard Rock Performance at the 49th annual Grammy Awards.[1] Though a planned music video was scrapped in the post-production stage,[2] "Every Day Is Exactly the Same" still topped Billboard's 2006 year-end Hot Dance Singles Sales chart, it has so far spent 94 weeks on the chart.[3]


The only officially released image from the production of the scrapped "Every Day is Exactly the Same" music video.

According to The Spiral, the music video for "Every Day Is Exactly the Same", directed by Francis Lawrence, was canceled in post-production. An image of a clapperboard and in the background what appeared to be water tank with a 3-lead ECG appeared on the official Nine Inch Nails website, but was later taken down.

There is also a studio cut video for the song. The video seems to be set in the area where the video for "The Hand That Feeds" was filmed. It can be seen on Beside You In Time.
