56Can't Let You Go - Rainbow
57Heaven - Warrant
58Wanted Dead or Alive - Bon Jovi

Being too cool to like BJ is like having a shower in a rain coat! If you love rock then this band has everything. Probably one of the best selling bands of all time, and certainly one of the best live. This is their trademark anthem, real crowd puller! Maybe not No1 but certainly top 5!

Great song it's too bad the 80's was the greatest decade of rock ever, probably the toughest decade to judge.

Dude u are so absolutely positively 1000 percent correct who doesn't like Bon jovi this is a great song by them or him or whatever
