Best Bon Jovi Songs

The Top Ten

1 Livin' on a Prayer 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!

This is my favorite bon jovi song, it a really good song - trains45

2 It's My Life 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

After years of blaring this song I still get chills.

3 You Give Love a Bad Name 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

I will never get tired of this song.

great guitar solo and lyrics

I really like this 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

Always is most definitely the most passionate, beautiful and powerful song of Bon Jovi's. It is a definition of true love the lyrics are more meaningful than any song these days. If you listen to the chorus you can here how much meaning he has put into the song. It can relate to anyone in true love who would give up anything for that one special person.
That's just my opinion. I love this song.

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

My favourite and the best performance at stages... They spent like 15 min on this one

7 Bed of Roses

well it's the best lovers song I have ever listen to! omg the best song ever :)! great guitar solo and lyrics

Very long romantic love song and one of the best rock ballads of all time - ronluna

it is the greatest song ever written - xtr3mist

This is my ultimate favorite song the best love song you can get to dance with the one you love and will always make a commitment to that person. If I get married it's the song to open the dance the first dance off the night

8 Runaway

Such an underrated masterpiece!

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

9 Have a Nice Day

I loved this song even more once I found out it was Have a Nice Day as in f*** you, 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

Hardest rocking Bon Jovi song of the 21st century. Rock on!

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

Love to listen to this thanks for your greastet song


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"


The Newcomers

? Take Back the Night
? Touch of Grey

The Contenders

11 Born to Be My Baby

This song should be in the top 10!
Good beginning, good lyrics, good guitar, good drums, good keyboard..
It's a great song! Bon jovi forever

Great song to watch live.. - bazinga

This song change my life. Should be in the first 10.

Great song with great guitar solo

12 Dry County

This one is needs to be voted, it's such a shame that this one is so underrated, one of the greatest song of bon jovi ever,

Not gonna deny: This one could have been in the Greatest Hits Ultimate Collection. - BonJovi17


This should be #1 it's absolutely the greatest song ever made it has a awesome solo so it deserves to be on top of everything really bon jovi best tock band ever

Their best song ever with the most beautiful solos - taladini

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.


Any Blaze Of Glory or Destination Anywhere song is JON BON JOVI :-/ - BonJovi17

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

My absolute favorite by Bon Jovi!

14 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

15 Keep the Faith

There are few songs done by ANYONE that the melody and the lyrics come together to create such a cohesive explosion of emotion. It gets to the very core of who we are, the struggle to maintain good versus evil. EPIC.

This is the most underrated Bon Jovi song. The instruments and vocals cause such an emotional feeling and it’s amazing. Definitely the best song, at least top 10 worthy.

Love this song great guitar solo this song should be number 10 or 11 not 14 please vote this one up love the drumming great singing I listen to this song near everyday with livin on a prayer

Love This Song Please Vote This Song Should Be Number 10 Or 11 It's That Good Amazing Guitar Solo Bass Drums And Singing - mneilan

16 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

Really?! Number 17?!

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

The most beutiful song from bon jovi for me

So much song writing ability in this song. Amazing

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!

19 Something to Believe In

Musically and emotionally, best Bon Jovi song. Raw talent.

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.

Cheers you up every time you are feeling low... Should at least be in the top 15...

21 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?!

One of the best songs by Bon Jovi. Everybody is special in their own way

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

22 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.

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

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

Best bon jovi song after it's my life... Definitely should be in top 10

23 These Days

Some of the most beautiful lyrics. - DaringXx

A perfect picture of those days. Always drives me to tears even when the love songs don't

I’ve been listening to These Days and Always a lot, all year. Two great pieces of art. - lastcig

The best intro, the best melody, the best solo and the best lyrics. There's nothing more to say.

24 This Ain't a Love Song

This song is really amazing.

Why is this work of art in #19? It has such a beautiful sound and a deep meaning.

Too bad it's not a love song because this is one of the top 10 ballads of all time - by anyone.

Deserves much higher up the list than this. Beautiful

25 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

26 I'd Die for You

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

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.

27 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.

28 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'

29 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!

I listen to this song, well, Everyday. Hands down one of BJ's Top Ten of all time. Uplifting. Rocking. Oh, and AWESOME.

30 I Am

This is Probably there Most underrated song ever it's Amazing and it happens to be my #1 Fave Bon Jovi song So much meaning Please people listen to this song and you'll hear why it's amazing - Curti2594

Love this song... certainly it's most underrated...

31 Two Story Town

Two Story Town is probably the most underrated song from Crush. It's everything that makes Bon Jovi a success, and it's honestly catchy but confusing the first few times you hear it, but it's an underrated anthem. - BonJovi17

This deserves a better place. Top 20 at least

This song is one of best bonjovi song ever. This song should be in top 15. Just listen to it.

What the hell. This song deserves way better than this place (Top 20 easily). Vote for this song... PORAG, (Muradpur,1204)

32 Only Lonely
33 In and Out of Love

My 5th favorite

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

61! Top ten maybe? Top 15 definitely

Damn the watchmojo video said this was number 10

34 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

35 Always Run to You

This song feels like a race, in a good way. The line "The clock strikes ten" feels like the equivalent to "GO! '. I guess that's on purpose, given the title. I wish this was a hit. - BonJovi17

What the fu**! This song is better than many other top songs of this list... no way! This song should be at the top 30 at least #salman hossain porag

36 Because We Can

Wonderful song... Mind blowing video.. Bon jovi iss back.

This is a incredible song,108? This the best song of What about now, fantastic album

Such a wonderful song, new Bon Jovi's fans anthem

One word : Higher. This song needs to be higher on the list! Great lyrics, catchy beat, awesome video, what more can you ask for? Please vote for this, it deserves to be higher, like waaayyy higher. Bon Jovi is an incredible artist

37 Captain Crash and the Beauty Queen From Mars

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

38 Scars on This Guitar

It may be a little unorthodox for Bon Jovi, but the personification of his guitar isn't a new thing. I like how he's basically telling the truth about how his guitar is his rock on the road. In a weird way, it's touching - BonJovi17

39 Mister Big Time - Jon Bon Jovi

It's not Blaze Of Glory, but it's definitely underrated. Only fans of the movie Armageddon and devoted Bon Jovi fans know about Mister Big Time. - BonJovi17

Wait...No one voted for this? It's his last great solo song! - HaiThere

40 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

Come on, this son g should be at least in the top 10

41 She Don't Know Me

Or of their first songs, great instruments and lyrics, should be in top 10

One of the first videos I remember seeing back when MTV first aired, remember MTV when they played REAL music...

42 Flesh and Bone

If I have my facts right, Flesh And Bone was gonna go on These Days, but it didn't make the cut because it's too dark. The funny thing is These Days as an album is kind of dark. I personally think Flesh And Bone would fit in almost perfectly on These Days. And given the fact that he's been doing western-rock since Slippery When Wet, I think it'd be a great addition to their western songs and the album alike. - BonJovi17

43 Superman Tonight

such beautiful lyrics, show how a love may be unconditional, no matter what happens, because you love that person, amazing... just AMAZING! you'll like this song more if you are in love

I didn't even know they made this many songs and I have listened to them all of my life... - lukeweber

This is Way too Low this a a great Song! - Curti2594

44 Hardest Part is the Night

The Hardest Part Is The Night has the same feel as Always Run To You. A dark fictional land, sort of. It radiates desperation just trying to survive the night. And it's the second time Jon used the "four walls" analogy that he later uses in Garageland and This House Is Not For Sale. Love everything about it. - BonJovi17

Great song by Bon Jovi - pLix33

This one rules for sure and anything else is just BS. Hands down the best tune from 7800° fahrenheit, get it to the top peeps!

Love it! It’s not overly produced. It has sort of a disco vibe, which I’m not into but it works for this song.

45 Brokenpromiseland

One of my favorites, certainly. My favorite on the circle.

46 Raise Your Hands

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

I agree with richie4life, its a brilliant classic bon jovi song, didn't stand out because it was on a great album.

this should be much higher, it's a great bon jovi song and if it would have been on another album it would have been a single... - richie4life

Such a great anthem of a tune, and a highlight of the bands live shows

47 Temptation - Demo

I like this because it's the cold hard truth to so many people. And it's a differently paced song with an instrumental that sounds kind of ominous, and alludes to The Sword of Damocles (gonna hang my head down on Damocles' sword) It's kind of educational about Greek mythology because of the name drop of Damocles. Great beat and chorus. - BonJovi17

48 Lie to Me

Top 5! The most underrated song

Underrated song. One of the best from Bon Jovi. Deserves TOP 20

49 Burning for Love
50 Billy Get Your Guns

Honestly, given this song is the other song that was on Young Guns II, I assumed it was close to being equal to it. It's not my favorite from the album, but it deserves to be higher. - BonJovi17
