That is because SQL Server doesn't know what %date% is. It sees it as a string. If you are attempting to write your backups to a directory named with a date value (such as 20130413) you have put that in there by building the string needed for the backup command.

Cool

If you are running this as an operating system command (dos), then try %date:/=_% instead of %date%, this will output dates with the "/" replaced by "_" making for a valid filename.
