New Jersey-based glam metal band. They aren't the most adventurous musicians, but hey, neither were AC/DC, and they still sound good. One of the few bands made up of nice guys to be still called metal. Their lineup is basically the same after 20 years, there have been no arrests, no pyrotechnics disasters (see Metallica and Great White), no stadium riots (see Guns n' Roses), no trips to rehab (see Ozzy Osbourne), no car crashes that killed other rock stars (see Motley Crue). Also, for some reason I can't understand, I can't imagine them being from anywhere but New Jersey. All in all, a solid band with a good career. Unquestioned masters of the power ballad.
Axl Rose was definitely the better frontman than Jon Bon Jovi, but there's no question about which one I'd rather get hang out with.

Possibly the best rock band to ever put out an entire album of power ballads (Slippery When Wet). Led by singer Jon Bon Jovi, the band is one of the few to make the transition from the 80's hair metal scene to the alternative nineties. Liked mostly by girls, and currently not cool in the public's eye, but we all know that they rocked pretty hard.

An adjective used to describe a talentless asshole who takes all the credit for the work of the entire team (e.g rock band).
Little Johnny: How do you like my project? I did it all by myself! Isn't it great?!
Teacher: Now now Johnny... Yeas it's a nice project. But no need to be Bon Jovi about it. The other kids deserved credit just as much as you did.

Bon Jovi are quite possibly the most overrated band of all time. A hair metal band named after the frontman, Bon Jovi is a disgrace to mankind.

Basically, Bon Jovi are pure and utter shit.
Respectable human being: Man, that Bon Jovi is fucking horrid. How do you like them?

Waste of oxygen: They're brilliant!

1) Sometimes classified as a Hair Metal group they were really just an overrated pop rock band. They rose to success in the 1980s by taking the sound of already successful, more talented acts such as Def Leppard, Motley Crue and Van Halen and pussifying it into the bland, repetitive, pop music they are known for. Were popular with young women mostly because they all just wanted to bang Jon Bon Jovi, the lead singer. Their popularity has dwindled in recent years due to the fact that their fan base is now in their 40s and no longer part of the most import demographic in terms of record sales, teenage girls. For similar bands, see Poison.

2) A bloody stool
1) Guy 1: What's the difference between Bon Jovi and the Jonas Brothers?

Guy 2: What?

Guy 1: About 20 years

2) Oh man I just came back from the doctor. He gave me some pills that should prevent me from having so many Bon Jovis.
