"What I Want" is the second U.S. rock single from the band Daughtry from their self titled debut album, and the third overall. It was released only to U.S. rock stations on April 23, 2007. The song features Slash on guitar.

The band opted to release the track to rock radio only, due to the fact that their second single, "Home", was not being played on rock stations due to its lighter sound. Since the band had had success on the format with their first single, "It's Not Over", they wanted to follow the song up, so "What I Want" was serviced to rock stations as the second single, while "Home" served as the mainstream, physically released second single. Since this was not a full single release, a music video for the song was not made.

"What I Want" is also featured as one of the songs on the "" game for the Nintendo DS.


The single was one of the most added tracks to rock radio upon its release. The song peaked at #6 on the Mainstream Rock Tracks chart.
