"All or Nothing" is a song recorded by American boy band O-Town. The pop ballad was written by Wayne Hector and Steve Mac, and produced by Mac, it was released in June 2001 as the second single from their debut album O-Town. The song reached number 5 in Canada, number 3 in the United States, and number 4 in the United Kingdom.

In 2006, Irish boy band Westlife recorded a cover version on their seventh UK number one studio album, The Love Album - to which is used extensively as background music during the audition stages of The X Factor UK; the song itself charted without being properly released as a single in the United Kingdom. Westlife later revealed that the song was first offered to them but Simon Cowell, their executive producer, rejected it and passed on to O-Town and became their hit.

Composition[edit]

The song is performed in the key of C major in common time with a tempo of 64 beats per minute then modulates to D major after the bridge; the group's vocals span from G4 to A5.[1][2]
