I loved 80s Bon Jovi and like a couple songs from the 90s and 2000s. Jon opened his own restaurant and it serves paying and in need customers.

I wonder if the people who vehemently hate them also hate their contemporaries (Def Leppard, post-1987 Whitesnake, Motley Crue) with the same passion.  I'm not a fan, per se, but I don't think their first few albums are so different from what lots of other so-called "hair bands" were doing.

Fahrenheit 451 was certainly a page turner but after that I kind of lost interest.

Be honest.  You learned what temperature melts rock because of that album.
No, but I learned what American cheese was like because of that album.

Beavis liked this 90s song.

Yeah, sort of.  I always liked Bon Jovi's records.  Good time music.  It's rock and roll.


My first Bon Jovi song was the video for Only Lonely..... back before they really took off. Still one of my top 100 songs.

Live... Giants Stadium in 86' or 87'.  I remember Jon running around above the crowd on scaffolding suspended high in the air.... wearing a Superman shirt. We had nosebleed seats, so he was pretty much eye level with us then.     Later, came to know they filmed that show and used clips of it in one of their videos.

I just thought I'd root out the Bon Jovi fans, since I was surprised to see a couple in here recently.


Well considering that November Rain made the top 4 in here for power ballads.....which is a complete joke in of itself.....I don’t think rooting out Bon Jovi fans is some kind of holy crusade.

Bon Jovi actually wrote many hits, sold 10’s upon 10’s of millions of albums......and have a legion of adoring fans around the world.

Guns and Roses on the other hand had one great album.....their debut. Since then it has been nothing but bloated...overrated dog shit with a lead vocalist that is cringeworthy.

But yeah that debut album was a killer. I love it.....the rest of their material....meh.

What does that have to do with Bon Jovi? Well they got better and better, and then got old.....and while I only like 4 of their albums...they were extreme professionals live, always put on kick ass shows.....and were always on time.

I think passing judgement on peoples musical tastes is really misguided. And seeing that in a Rush forum......oh the f***ing irony.
Are you taking a pop at me? You're going to have to do better. :hi:

Just some good natured ball busting Tree!!!

Want a deep cut hidden gem....and 9 minute plus Bon Jovi tune?

Give “Dry County” a listen on Keep the Faith.

Really cool song.

Just like Madonna, I only listen to older songs for childhood nostalgia.  His songwriting formula of cliched old sayings spliced together is tiring.  Lay Your Hands On Me is the worst offender of this.

There's one song I've ALWAYS hated since day one, though.

I was surprised to find Bon Jovi had most of their hits written for them. Forget which songs. Similar to Madonna in that regard.

Def Leppard are the best of the hair metal group, for my tastes. They're certainly the heaviest apart from Motley Crue, but Vince Neil sounds terrible.

Sometimes I look around to make sure I’m alone then I listen to Silent Night. Don’t tell anyone, I don’t want Neanderthals like LABT and Rick busting my balls.

Have to admit that Silent Night is a guilty pleasure here too...always liked the "just turn and walk away" bit.
