Best Bon Jovi Songs

The Top Ten

1 Livin' on a Prayer

Yeah! The Best song of Bon Jovi of course...! When you say Justin Bieber I say without problems... BON JOVI! I'm 15 years and I think that the boys who think that Justin Bieber is better than old rock are stupids.

Live in Romania, I've been waiting a long time for a concert like this, best rock band ever seen. I'd love to hear Livin On a Prayer and It's My Life!
Best regards from Romania!

This song owns! This song is the only reason I know who Bon Jovi is. Definitely the best Bon Jovi ever!

A brilliant song

2 It's My Life

There seriously is no competition with a song like "Its My Life" around.. Really, one would have to say that it deserves the top spot. Move over Livin' On A Prayer!

This ain't a song for the brokenhearted
No silent prayer for the faith departed
And I ain't gonna be just a face in the crowd
You're gonna hear my voice when I shout it out loud

It's my life!

This is one of my most favorite songs ever, in my top 10 and definitely the best Bon Jovi song. I don't know why this isn't number one, it's way better then Livin' on a Prayer

This song is more for the people who don't like classic rock, but still want the rock feeling. It is a food song, I like new rock and classic rock, but if you like only new rock and you are sick of imagine dragons, go to this song. It's a great song no matter what

3 You Give Love a Bad Name

Everybody says that this one is the best. Come on its way better than liven on a prayer. Maybe one day it will be the best

This wasn't even supposed to be a Bon Jovi song. It was gonna be a Bonnie Tyler song. ;-; - BonJovi17

This song is absolutely amazing! Not to say that everything by Bon Jovi isn't fabulous... But this song, in particular, rocks.

Best song ever I always listen to this on the way to school and sing to it why isn't this number 1?! Xxx

Followed by Always, and I'll Be There For You. - truckturner

4 Wanted Dead or Alive

It has all the feelings of being a classic masterpiece

great guitar solo and lyrics

Great song, instantly recognizable even in the background of countless T.V. shows or movies, a rock classic, great visual imagery, inspires new guitarists - just unmatched!

This is just their greatest song. - Userguy44

5 Always

I disagree with the opinions of others, that "Living in a prayer" and It's my life" are better than this one... NO! No way! Yes, I admit those two are great songs too, but "Always"... It's just epic.. You can feel Jon giving all his energy, emotions and soul singing this.. I love all of BJ songs, but "Always" was the one introducing me to this great band and I haven't stopped loving it till that moment..

It's really grown on me. I honestly dislike maybe 3-4 Bon Jovi songs - BonJovi17

This is my FAVORITE Bon Jovi song. I just love it.

Is the absolutely hit of Bon Jovi, I think this song separates him from every other hair band of the 80's and place him as the king

6 Bad Medicine

Best song to sing and dance to drunk - Bec

What is this one doing down at #10?
Easily the best Bon Jovi song ever!
The New Jersey is very underrated on this list. NY and SWW are head and shoulders above the rest of the Jovi catalog!

This song's obviously underrated and deserves a higher place on the list. Probably the best Bon Jovi song ever

I think that this should be up at number five at least. It’s a really catchy song and it’s one of my favourites!

8 Runaway

Runaway is my favorite Bon Jovi song. You have to love the keyboard and guitar solos. So much meaning to the song as well. All of their songs are good, but this one is best.

Deserves to be in the top ten the starting keyboard solo is amazing!
Great song love it

Haven't you heard the acoustic version? Time to listen and cry if not! It is beautiful. Just beautiful

Love it so much the gutair and vocals blew me away

9 Have a Nice Day

Bon jovi is a happy artist with songs about hopes and dreams and this song has a amazing guitar riff and an awesome vocal combined with those legendary lyrics

Amazing song, much love for the lyrical genius and quality rock perfomance.

Makes my mood better! - Userguy44

10 I'll Be There for You

This song has a greats lyrics: ill be there water when you get thirsty, when you get drunk ill be the wine
Is a masterpiece with all the solo, the piano's pats, I can't believe that isn't in the top 10


Oh My God! U can't believe that this wonderful song with heart touching lyrics and good guitar solo is in the 11th position. Its impossible. This song deserves Position in the Top 5. I sure everyone will love this song and if possible you will sing it your lover.

"I'll be there for you, this 5 words I swear to you, when you breath I want to be the air for you, I'll be there for you"

I LOVE this song!

13 Blaze of Glory

Simply one of their best. More people should put this song on the top 10 jovi list as its just as good as wanted dead or alive if not better.

My absolute favorite by Bon Jovi!

Best song by them. Definitely should be number 1! Bon Jovi at their best in this song.

This isn’t a Bon Jovi song, but it was made by the lead singer of Bon Jovi, Jon Bon Jovi.

15 Lay Your Hands on Me

exellent starting and mind blowing Rock music... - RIFATHUSSAIN

This is 17? Yea right...this is easily in the top 3. My personal favorite song, even better than Livin on a Prayer. This song is an anthem.

Definitely my favorite behind Dry County - benhos

Should be 2nd behind living on a prayer

16 Never Say Goodbye

Absolutely beautiful song which moved my heart. Should be way higher on the list.

never say goodbye 2x
u and I and my old friends... - ronluna

Takes me back to yesteryear

17 No Apologies

I love most of Bon Jovi's songs and though I wouldn't put this at number one it should be a lot higher, top ten at least, great song!

Is this a joke? This is top 20 when it should be like 70th

good song

Wicked song

18 In These Arms

My all-time favourite song ever out of anything and anyone!

Powerful song! In my opinion is the best because reminds me my High School times and my first girlfriend. Rest of songs are wonderful, however. Best regards from Madrid!

Great song that made me cry! heard it live in munich last sunday and it was such an awesome feeling! I'm really not able to discribe it! But I love it

The most beutiful song from bon jovi for me

19 Something to Believe In

This song should totally be higher in the ratings... It's definitely top 10 material! Just listen to it, and I know you'll agree with me. Just listen to this song, and then listen to Living on a Prayer and you tell me that Ling on a Prayer is better... It's just not possible! Vote for this!

Agree with the other fella'. My favourite Bon Jovi song of all time. PERIOD! This is coming from a man who owns all Bon Jovi albums.

It's got a good beat/rhythm to it, but it's that good. Livin' On A Prayer is best. Otherwise this would be the main encore at his (or their) concerts. - BonJovi17

If this song ever had air time on the radio, it would be in the top 3 of this list FACT.
People need to stop listening to the singles and explore the albums more.

20 Someday I'll Be a Saturday Night

This gets me trough the entire week... amazing song, can't stop listening to it!
I'm feeling like a monday but someday I'll be saturday night

I can't believe this song is 17th- It's one of my favorite songs ever, and should be a lot higher on the list (it would if it were up to me)

It's a classic, awesome song.

Got me into Bon Jovi and it's still my favourite,without a doubt the best song by Bon Jovi

21 We Weren't Born to Follow

The best ever Bon Jovi song, although it's really close with No Apologies. It should be rated loads higher than 30th after all it is on their greatest hits album whereas lots of these other tracks are not.

This is a great song to pump you up along with born to be my baby and bad medicine it's my favourite, can't believe it's so low on this list, I mean it's just pure awesome

Gives you confidence about life with its amazing lyrics. Should be higher than 24 in my opinion.

It's just awesome. And so is the rest of The Circle.

22 Living in Sin


Most underrated song of bon jon jovi, he has expressed himself to extreme in this one.

One of Bon Jovi's best, great chord progressions

23 Lost Highway

It's inspiring, very nice...

Come On... It's a top 10 song...

This a very good song

Very inspiring, beautiful song, truly amazing. It deserves to be appriciated.

24 I'd Die for You

So underrated. Definitely one of their best songs EVER. Should be way higher on the list.

Not exactly. There's this album that they put their hits and semi hits of Bon Jovi (album), 7800* Fahrenheit and Slippery When Wet, called Hard & Hot. This and Never Say Goodbye were the Slippery When Wet songs that didn't make the Greatest Hits Ultimate Collection. Others are In And Out of Love, King Of The Mountain, Tokyo Road and To The Fire, She Don't Know Me, Shot Through The Heart, and Breakout. - BonJovi17

very underrated song from slippery - richie4life

Why is this not higher? I've never heard a bad Bon Jovi song in my entire life, but this definitely deserves better. Super underrated, probably my favorite.

This is a real early classic bon jovi song. Make Your vote!

25 Stick to Your Guns

The best song from New Jersey album this is so underrated song the beginning of the song is so beautiful. Good song to relax to

Played back to back with Ride Cowboy Ride - absolutely amazing!

One of those reasons that albums are better than best of's. the way the powerchords give way to gentle acoustic guitar is fantastic. This is the precurser to songs like 'Sante Fe'

26 Everyday

good song about independance

This is so good... Why don't people like it? ;/

Hard to believe this is not even in the top 10.
First Bon Jovi son I heard, and I instantly fell in love with the band.
The grunge music in this is just incredible!

Everyday is one of the best and also onenof the most underrated bon jovi songs..I don't know why BJ hasn't played this song live since 2004 and also why don't people like it! it has great lyrics and also a killer solo

28 Only Lonely
29 Roulette

You're going round in a spin, caught up in a game you can't win! I know that "Always" and "It's my life" are great, but you should also check out his first album. It's even better

30 In and Out of Love

Not my favorite, but it should be a lot higher, so I'm voting for it.

32 Captain Crash and the Beauty Queen From Mars

BEAUTIFUL AND NICE SONG! One of my favorit of Bon Jovi

33 Shot Through the Heart

For all you commenting, bon jovi wrote two separate songs. One is called Shot Through the heart and the other is you Give Love a bad Name, different songs

Hey! You guys gotta be kidding! My god... Here was I searching it somewhere in top 3 spots!

Well this song's not famous enough but it definitely is pretty damn good

Bon Jovi only had one good album and this is the best song on it. Hate it when people confuse it with the craptastic you give love a bad name.

34 Welcome to Wherever You Are

I was Gonna continue voting up their song "I AM" until I saw How low this Outstanding beautiful Meaningful Song was!

Coem on Bon Jovi Fans This song has WAY TO MUCH MEANING To be So low! - Curti2594

104?... How... This song is amazing... I don't even... I just literally stared at this... Atrocity for a minute. How can this be even lower than top 20?!

Hold on! This low? A lot of meaning, emotions.

One of my favourite songs. Possibly the most energy that I've heard.
