80s Awesomeness! ~ 51

Bon Jovi!!!


You know you're hot for those ultra-tight pants and damn! That hair! I don't think there wasn't a girl that swooned over this good guy hair metal band in the 80s. Unfortunately for the ladies, John Bon Jovi was unabashedly addicted to his high school sweetheart. As far as I know, he still is. Bon Jovi is still around today cranking out similar-sounding tunes and, thank the gods, wearing better clothes and hair. But they'll forever be known for Slippery When Wet.

I used to tease my roommate in college about Bon Jovi (because she was born in New Jersey). I bought a couple of their CDs and played them sometimes to annoy her. Very funny!

Back in the late 80s I had a Pocket Rocker and Slippery When Wet was one of the tapes I had. Runaway was quite possibly my favorite song of their's.

I still love Bon Jovi but I was never a fan of the big hair, even in the big hair days! I think it's amazing (and sexy too) that Jon married his high school sweetheart. They just had their 4th or 5th kid a few years ago!
