Best Bon Jovi Songs

The Top Ten
1 Livin' on a Prayer Livin' on a Prayer Cover Art

I can't believe that some people still thinking it's my life it's the better bon jovi song when livin' on a prayer is high better.

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.

Pure Classic, There is now competition when bon jovi comes around, this is probably their most famous song, and its well worth that title, I've been listening to this since I was 5, why you ask? because it pure amazing! Bon jovi is an inspiration to everyone, do you know he traveled ALL THE WAY to Egypt just to support them during their rough times, he even wrote a song for them [no apologies] Bon jovi, keep rocking because you have many loyal fans and your such an inspiration

This is definitely the best bon jovi song, for me and for many others. Even the kids that listen to crap these days think that it's a good song. I'm suprised that "dead or alive" wasn't up here in second though. I'm 14, and I am all out against Justin beiber and all pop/rap... Music that my friends listen to sucks, lets just leave it at that.

2 It's My Life It's My Life Cover Art

I absolutely love this song. I always believed that Livin' On a Prayer should have been number one until I discovered this song. I personally believe it should be above Livin' On a Prayer and should be at the top spot. Amazing song! Cannot wait to watch their tour, Because We Can, in Manchester next year. Go Bon Jovi!

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!

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 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 You Give Love a Bad Name Cover Art

This is my favorite song even now here in 2012. I love listening to it and playing on guitar hero. I think this should be his top song. I never stop listening to it, I probably never will. I mean livin' on a prayer isn't that great. I listen to it non stop on the bus.

The most kick ass song of all time. When you hear it you just get that super psyched feeling rising up in your chest and you want to shout and dance and be awesome. I love everthing by Bon Jovi but this is definitely the best.

They say "it's my life" is the best but this completly false just a full classic Bon Jovi track like "You give love a bad name" can be their best. A true classic old, but gold Bon Jovi song what is their best!

People should actually listen to the songs before voting because living on a prayer is number one because it is so recognizable even though it's not as good as this song.

4 Wanted Dead or Alive Wanted Dead or Alive Cover Art

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!

Love this song it's amazing. First heard it off supernatural the T.V. series (please watch it, you will love it! ) when dean and sam where singing it it made me love it even more!

For me this is the best. However, in the rest of the world, they preffer Livin on a prayer and It's my life. But in the end of the day, and the thing everyone should take into acount is that everybody is entitled to an opinion

I have listened to all the songs above but still this is my most favourite song from bon jovi. If you are a crook and you have a ride than this song should defimitely be your anthem

5 Always Always Cover Art

Come on now, guys. Livin' on a Prayer and It's My Life are 'great' songs by Bon Jovi but they just can't go near to this song. Always is the only song where Jon gave so much emotion not to mention the solo was EPIC!

'Through the wind, through the snow, through the driving rain
I'd crawl all the way home oh baby, baby, baby.

To be back in your arms, just to taste your kiss.

Just to hear you say baby are you alright when I'm not there. ' - Additional lyrics of this song from their 1995 concert in London, pure awesomeness!

In case you haven't noticed, I usually vote for for the more underrated songs, and aside from a few replies, I haven't voted for a song rated higher than 25th place (as of today, February 5, 2020.) Why am I making the exception now? Always is so full of emotion, it's hard to not vote for the song. Sadness, good beat, and passion out the wazoo. I love this song!

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..

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 Bad Medicine Cover Art

Come on, how on earth "you give love a bad name" and "wanted dead or alive" are ranked above this song. Open your ears for crying out loud Bad Medicine is so much better than wanted dead or alive. I just can't believe the tastes of people. I just cannot.

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 Bed of Roses Cover Art

Beautiful. Definitely the greatest Bon Jovi song with the best guitar solo ever created by Richie Sambora and awesomeness from Jon Bon Jovi David Bryan and Tico Torres.
Truly the best song Bon Jovi has ever written

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

One of the best songs I have ever heard... I wish I could sing this song with that passion and emotion... It's the best song...No other song I've ever heard can surpass this emotion...Hats off to Jovi...

Well I cannot NOT listen to this number each night. Its an awesome love song, has to be my BON JOVI favorite. The tune is arresting and the vocals, befitting!

8 Runaway Runaway Cover Art

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.

Get this in the top 10. Without this, most of us would never have heard Livin On a Prayer, because this put Bon Jovi on the map

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

Immm what is this have a nice. From the keyboard intro to the energetic chorus this song has to be in the top

9 Have a Nice Day Have a Nice Day Cover Art

By far my favourite. The lyrics the level of rock and awesomeness of the song. It just makes this song awesome. Only real music fans appreciate songs like this. Fantastic song!

Love this song. God Damn. If only I could yell the lyrics to my dad's face. In All honesty this song is great for people who want to get their parent's off their case.

The catchy guitar part and the incredible lyrics make this song legendary. It's very underrated, and it's only rivaled by Living on a Prayer in my opinion.

I thought bon jovi can't get any better than It's my Life, but when I heard this... My ears were in heaven.

Also, the lyrics are just pure GENIUS. GENIUSS.

10 I'll Be There for You I'll Be There for You Cover Art

Sounds like an inverse Wild Is the Wind. Wild Is the Wind is about some guy who leaves his girlfriend/wife because he knows he's not good enough for her; I'll Be There for You is about the girlfriend/wife threatening to leave the boyfriend/husband, and his pleas and promises if she stays. Of course, the similarities end there, and aren't even that strong, but still.

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"

This song is just amazing. No matter where I am I can't help but sing a long and it makes me so happy. It's the best song I've ever heard, it's legendary. The lyrics, the singing, the solos, the... EVERYTHING. Ugh, ORGASM AHHAHAH


The Contenders
11 Dry County Dry County Cover Art

This song is an underrated, beautiful epic about drought, with crazy great solos, a powerful singing voice, the best bon jovi drumming and absolutely gorgeous piano. It's just not very popular, that's why not that much people know it, but who knows it certainly should vote for it!
Even though I'm a big Zeppelin fan, I must admit, if this song was released by them, it'd be on my top 3 Led Zeppelin songs! I love Bon Jovi, and without this they'd be a great band, but this is the track that takes them from great to legendary, not Livin on a Prayer.

This song has a bit of everything. The songs above this are deserved of tops spots but Dry COunty just has so much power and meaning from beginning to end. The powerful lyrics, the meditative beginning, the awesome chrous and the best guitar solo of all their songs, Dry County has a nostalgic punch for me that I can't ignore. Best song from one of the best albums.

Not my favourite Bon Jovi song but I simply think it has to be higher. An absolute epic of a song with ups and downs in all the right places. Great lyrics, great guitar solo and is certainly better than some of the songs higher up on this list.

The best song ever. Awesome solo! I just love to listen to this song. Truelly the best Bon Jovi song to ever be made. This should be at the top. Not in fourth! Why are you guys be so mean to this song? Have you ever listened to it. If you haven't then listen to it!

12 Born to Be My Baby Born to Be My Baby Cover Art

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

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

Great song with great guitar solo

Great song to watch live..

13 Blaze of Glory Blaze of Glory Cover Art

My personal favorite! Made for the AWESOME movie that is Young Guns!

Livin' on a Prayer and You Give Love a Bad Name (if you were a teen in 80's) was WAY overplayed and no I can't stand hearing them.

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.

Are you kidding me!
9th position..
Just read the lyrics of this song. Jon Bon Jovi has sang them with such vocals that they will blow you off.

One of my all time favorites. Love the feel of the song and the 'devil may care' attitude. Just love it.

14 Lay Your Hands on Me Lay Your Hands on Me Cover Art

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

On mtvs top 100 pub rock hits this was placed before livin on a prayer

Should be 2nd behind living on a prayer

15 Keep the Faith Keep the Faith Cover Art

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.

This song just moves everything inside of me! There is no other song as powerful as keep the faith, it's not only the lyrics and the message, it's the music, best guitar, best drums, best base ever!

I'm not gonna say this is their absolute best song, but it certainly deserves a spot in the top 5 at least. This song seriously rocks, I suggest you listen to it again.

16 Never Say Goodbye Never Say Goodbye Cover Art

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

Takes me back to yesteryear

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

17 No Apologies No Apologies Cover Art

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!

It's an okay song, but in retrospect, it's almost just Jon saying "No apologies" over and over

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

good song

18 In These Arms In These Arms Cover Art

Maybe people that hear this song never stopped to hear with a open heart. It's so amazing! Make we feel like we're in love, crazy in love for somebody, even we're not...

To me, the best LOVE SONG of Bon Jovi.
Love, love, love.

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!

This is a masterpiece song by Bon Jovi, the guitar riffs and the vocals are amazing. Conveys a very powerful emotion!

By far the most underrated Bon Jovi and such beautiful lyrics that get me every time. Just has to be in the top 10.

19 Living in Sin Living in Sin Cover Art

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


20 Something to Believe In Something to Believe In Cover Art

Something to Believe In is probably considered anti-religion by older fans. To me, it sounds like Socratesesque questioning.

This song is my anthem. Or one of them, anyway. Perfect song for someone like myself, who can't get some glory for my talents. It makes me angry and sad at the same time if that makes sense.

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!

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.

21 Someday I'll Be Saturday Night Someday I'll Be Saturday Night Cover Art

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

This song is amazing... Sounds feels great can't stop listening.. Vote for it now..

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

Amazing song, Cheers me up whenever I'm feeling down.

22 We Weren't Born to Follow We Weren't Born to Follow Cover Art

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.

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

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

23 This Ain't a Love Song This Ain't a Love Song Cover Art

Yet another song that sounds a lot like I'll Be There for You. I don't think it's spectacular (perhaps because it sounds like I'll Be There for You,) but it's a good song, and I'm surprised that it went from somewhere around #15 or so to #42

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

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

This is my favourite bon jovi song. The music, lyrics & vocals submersies me in to the story.

24 My Guitar Lies Bleeding in My Arms My Guitar Lies Bleeding in My Arms Cover Art

Who said misery likes company? I'm gonna coin that as one of the stupidest phrases. But I regress. I feel a sense of empathy with Jon in this song.

The best Bon Jovi song, this and "Something To Believe In" are my favorite.
This song is so emotional and deep it just makes me cry. Gets me through every time I'm feeling down are depressed.

Always will always have its special place in my mind, but this deserves to be in top 10 at least, the power of this song is amazing. underrated

This song is just filled with emotions. It will make you at least shed a tear, unless you are made of stone. Definitely deserves to be top 5.

25 Lost Highway Lost Highway Cover Art

Lost Highway's a pretty good song. I don't know about being inspirational (although it is that, too apparently.) Lost Highway is becoming my favorite song from the album

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

It's inspiring, very nice...

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