I am getting an error on Line 1....can't seem to figure it out.

$result = $db->query("SELECT `views`.`track`,`tracks`.`title`,`tracks`.`art`, COUNT(`track`) as `count` FROM `views`,`tracks` WHERE `views`.`track` = `tracks`.`id` AND DATE_SUB(CURDATE(),INTERVAL 1 DAY) <= date(`views`.`time`) AND `tracks`.`public` = 1 AND `art` != 'default.png' GROUP BY `track` ORDER BY `count` DESC LIMIT 20");
[Err] 1064 - You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near '$result = $db->query("SELECT `views`.`track`,`tracks`.`title`,`tracks`.`art`, CO' at line 1

It might be "ORDER BY count" since "count" is a reserved function name.  Maybe try changing that to "kount" or something like that?  I'll try a few experiments and post back in a while.

Try the query like this.  Note that I have prepared the query in a PHP variable, instead of a part of the function call.  This makes error visualization much easier, because you can print a PHP variable and look at its contents.  You can't do that if your query string is constructed inside the function arguments.  Also, if you separate the query into different lines, the error messages will give you a line number associated with the syntax error.  Much easier to spot errors this way, than if the entire query is all on one line!

I can't test it because I do not have your database, but the error I got when I ran it was related to the missing table, so I think the syntax might be OK now (I hope).
$sql
=
"
SELECT
  views.track
, tracks.title
, tracks.art
, COUNT(track) AS kount
FROM
  views
, tracks
WHERE
  views.track = tracks.id
AND
  DATE_SUB(CURDATE(),INTERVAL 1 DAY) <= DATE(views.time)
AND
  tracks.public = 1
AND
  art != 'default.png'
GROUP BY track
ORDER BY kount DESC
LIMIT 20
"
;
