Bon Jovi is a hard rock band formed in 1983, which had a streak of successful albums in the late 1980s. The band originally consisted of lead vocalist Jon Bon Jovi, guitarist Ritchie Sambora (left in 2013), bassist Alec John Such (left in 1994), keyboard David Bryan, and drummer Tico Torres.

I used to be more of a Survivor guy. But once I started listening to Bon Jovi (the basic 3: You Give Love a Bad Name, and Wanted Dead or Alive) I was rather obsessed with their songs. And then I eased into the greatest hits (although I will admit, I never got interested in "Always") and then, This House Is Not For Sale came out. Went to see Bon Jovi on their 2017 tour. And after that, I started listening to songs that weren't hits. (Before This House Is Not For Sale, I got interested in Two Story Town, but otherwise, until then I stuck with the hits.) and surprisingly, my parents don't remember the songs I bring up, like my guitar lies bleeding in my arms. Very catchy song. The best parts of Bon Jovi are:it's a multi-era band, the band members aren't all in their 60's, and they're still releasing new material. Queen, Survivor and a lot of the others, on the other hand, stopped rather quickly. And if you ask me, Duran Duran is only known for Hungry Like the Wolf, Rio, Wild Boys and ...more
Face it: Bon Jovi is way better than Duran Duran. If you were to come up to somebody, and ask "What comes to mind when I say 'Duran Duran', you'd get a bunch of teens my age saying "Kevin Durant? ", a little older (say 25) and you'll get people saying "'Rio' and 'Hungry Like the Wolf'," and anyone who's 40 and up might give you as mentioned as well as the Wild Boys and Girls on Film. Bon Jovi on the other hand, kids my age would give you "Livin' On a Prayer" almost guaranteed. They'll Give you "You Give Love a Bad Name" and/or "Wanted Dead or Alive" and with luck they'll be able to name a couple of songs from This House Is Not For Sale. At 25, they would be able to give you all previously mentioned, plus songs from Burning Bridges, Have a Nice Day, Crush, These Days, Keep the Faith and New Jersey. As of 40 and up... I honestly think that there's only a matter of time before they only remember Livin' On a Prayer, You Give Love a Bad Name, Wanted Dead or Alive, I'll Be There For You and ...more
Bon Jovi is a great band! They not only are great as a band but in life too! I respect the fact that they kept their business private. They invest in their community. Their music timeline was about my life, from my teens to raising my kids. Make me proud that my kids like them too. I would take them for Spring Break, They had to listen to my music first and loved it. Music today does not seem to offer that. My best friend and other got our tickets to a concert, she was killed 2days after we got our tickets. We celebrated her and our memories at that concert. Till this day I still cry when I here some of the songs. But at the same time it makes me smile because it reminds me of what great times we had and Bon Jovi music was a big part of it. When MTV would announce the new Video, I, m a Cowboy. We all would watch it at who ever had cable! Haha,
From Runaway to We Don't Run, Self titled album to This House Is Not For Sale, these guys are best. Yeah. They don't have Sambora anymore, but his impact or legacy has never fully subsided. "Saturday Night Gave Me Sunday Morning" was co written by Sambora. "Burning Bridges" (song) and "All Hail The King" are referring to him. I actually think that both concerts I went to were more packed than a Stars Game or Mavericks Game, by a long shot. And Jon has literally seen a million faces (and rocked them all). Met Joey Tempest of Europe, Steve Perry, Jennifer Nettles, and both Obama and Trump at one point or another. You name 'em; he's met them. And These Days (song) and "Lonely At the Top" are dedicated to Kurk Cobain, whom was a fan. You don't hear stuff like this from ANY other band on the list. (Okay, that's an "I'm pretty sure.")
Forever the best! I saw them in 1988, I saw them in 2012.. The weather hasn't changed them, they are like good wine: the more time passes and more improved! Not old, just older!
One of the best bands in the world that has been able to adapt to the passage of time and involved and united old and new generations with a timeless music!
An 80s band that have stood the test of time and sold over 130 million records. Their tours constantly top the highest grossing lists and they continue to adapt and change their sound to fit with the times and also are arguably highly under-rated and under-appreciated by the critics. Definitely the greatest band to come out of the 80s and still be just as big today.
I have only been a fan for about 8 years, and I have never heard such good music. Jon and Richie are fantastic songwriters and don't get the credit they deserve, even though they are in the songwriters' Hall of Fame. It will be a long time before someone comes along to surpass BON JOVI and their music.
Most awesome band of the 80's, 90's, 00's and today! How can anyone NOT love them? They put on awesome concerts that are worth every penny and make you wanna go back for more! I love how Jon is always giving his time and heart to help people in need.
Bon Jovi had more hits than most the bands on this list. How in the hell is A-Ha at Number 1 when the song you named is the only song they have that's credible?! For a band to be in the Top 10 list, the have to have produced 3+ albums of nothing but great songs... If I have to skip over the songs to find the good ones, then that band failed! Insert album, push play, listen... Fuuf said!
Bon Jovi has the best rock/pop tune from the 80's: "Livin' On A Prayer", but we can forget hits like "You Give Love A Bad Name" and "Wanted Dead Or Alive" (unique acoustic sound for the time). They ruled the scene from 1986 to 1990, with four number 1 on Billboard.
Mah... I want to know how can the A-ah be in the head. They are a band active in the 80s and then? The bj are, instead, are 30 years that produce great music and at the end of the year, it will be released a new album! Listen to them... And then judge!
Best Band Ever shout out to the people of New Jersey Bon Jovi is clearing the best band has ever played followed by Guns N Roses they both really great but Bon Jovi Lasted long than 10 years of playing music and rocking out New Jersey Bon Jovi!
Years and years of music, generations of generations who have loved and still love them, lots of records, world tours always sold out... There's nothing to add... The best always!
Bon Jovi has been a personal favorite of mine since I was only 11. My love for the band only continued to grow as I did, this band is the real number one. Right behind them, Guns 'n Roses and Metallica.
Amazing songs! I love bon jovi's older and newer songs. He's by far my favorite rock band of all time. Some songs are emotional while others are pure rock. You can not get any better with bon jovi
One day I will see them in concert! I had tickets in 2013, very close to the stage. I had a high risk pregnancy and my due date was changed to the day of the concert. One day I will see this remarkable group play!
I've Been a Bon Jovi for a long time they are clearly the best awesome Rock And Roll band They have been here for a long time and never had problems they are clearly an Amazing Band Bon Jovi! Forever
BON JOVI IS THE BEST! Like, sure they lost thir voice and suck now but some of their songs like it's my life still sound great! Jon did EVERYTHING! Bon Jovi is the best band ever
The proper recognition for a group that will never go out of fashion, because it has maintained its style while adapting to the passage of time! Great!
They are LEGENDS! Still making #1 albums, one of the greatest touring acts around the world... The only ones who come close are U2 and the Stones.
They are literally the best band I have heard. I grew up always listening to their songs on my radio. My favorite one by them is ill be there for you. You must listen to them.
Bon Jovi SUCKS ASS! The only reason he was allowed on air is his connections - Yep folks, the old boy network strikes again. I would rather listen to fingernails on a chalkboard while having a root canal with no drugs!
So? Your opinion doesn't change the fact that they are still the best.
Impossible not to vote this great band! A band that has done, does and will do the history of music! They live in our memories and build memories of our children
The best band EVER! They've been around since 1983 and still are releasing top songs! Too many awesome songs to name. My favourite band in the ENTIRE world and I'm 12!
