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.

One of the most incredible bands of all time. Many people judge them by some of the latest albums which aren't half as good as the early songs. Best songs include:livin' on a prayer, these days, just older, mystery train, in these arms, bed of roses, damned, diamond ring and so much more I can't name them. One of the few non-druggy bands around.

As a verb, to "Bon Jovi" someone is to completely humiliate them either by their stupid actions or by your superior actions.

In modern cyber/text message language, to "Bon Jovi" someone is to completely pwn them, most often through some humiliating action.
