#36 is the thirty-sixth song written by Dave Matthews for his band. Matthews wrote it after anti-apartheid campaigner Chris Hani was assassinated in South Africa. At the onset of the Everyday sessions, with Glen Ballard, they evolved the song into into Everyday. Since the songs evolution into Everyday, Dave has been interpolating the lyrics from 36 into the bridge of Everyday. This is called the 36 interpolation or 36 outro. An example of this interpolation is on the live release The Gorge.
