Throwback Thursday, Bon Jovi edition

When thinking of Bon Jovi their voluminous hair from the 1980's you might be tempted to think that "Living on a Prayer" was their big hit that put them on the map. No one can blame you for this oversight, because if you've been to a high school football game in the last ten years you know that it is MANDATORY that every band play this song, and that half of all drill teams perform some sort of high kick dance routine to the song. However, you would be mistaken. You Give Love a Bad Name is the song that really vaulted Bon Jovi into superstardom. Don't remember when Bon Jovi was a big deal? Then you my friend are not part of Generation X ( congratulations!). 

Fun fact about this video. Bon Jovi weren't a big deal when they filmed it. This arena was filled with friends and other locals to make it look like they were playing a big packed house, but in reality they weren't there yet. The tricked worked on me. As a 13 year old freshman in high school I thought "wow, these guys must be big, I wish I was cool enough to know about them before now".  Yes, I was a sucker. So were millions of others because they became big stars as a result of this video, and now it seems they will never go away.

Enjoy the glorious bouncing hair from You Give Love A Bad Name.
