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!

This is a really good song I remember playing it on guitar hero a few times too - trains45

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

After years of blaring this song I still get chills.

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

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

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

8 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

9 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

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!

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.

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

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!

Wicked song

19 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!

20 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

21 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.

22 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...

23 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

24 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.

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'

44 Hardest Part is the Night

Great song by Bon Jovi - pLix33

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.

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!

7800º Fahrenheit is my favourite bon jovi album, because it’s their heavisest, and this is the dopest tune
