Do you think Bon Jovi is a legendary rock band?
« on: April 18, 2004, 10:48:43 AM »

I don't think Bon Jovi is a legendary rock band at all or are most 80's rock bands while it's ridiculous calling Jon Bon Jovi a rock legend similiar to a Paul McCartney or Steven Tyler because he's so lame as an artist mostly known for his famous 80's haircut even though they have been around for about 20 years with Slippery When Wet being their only great classic rock album but you have to be out of your mind if you think BJ is a legendary rock band similiar to Led Zeppelin & Aerosmith.

All I want to say about Bon Jovi is that I really hate that band. I really can't stand them.

I don't know if legendary is correct, but they are a good band and have some good songs. They have sold more than 20 million records so I guess a lot of people like them.

Boy, people really hate that band, and I've never quite understood why.  They were just another big hair rock band of the 80's, maybe a bit more popular but that's all.

Anyway, Bruno's right.  They have a bunch of good singles, arena rock.  No ne claimed they would change the world, just rock n roll.

I admit that I like a few of their songs. I wouldn't say they are the best rock band though.

I listen to Bon Jovi sometimes, I think I like'em just cuz my mama used to play them all the time when I was younger, to call them a legendary rock band would be a joke, cuz sometimes thats what I think they are, but they had a few good songs.

They have many good songs that I love, like You give love a bad name or Always, occasionly I listen to them. But they are not my fave. Yep, they're good in my opinion.

Good God! When did Bon Jovi start covering Jethro Tull tunes?

Also, I really cant stomach any Bon Jovi stuff.

I believe rock and roll died with John Lennon.  That's my opinion, but can anyone mention a really good rock band to come along since he died?.....Ok, perhaps Nirvana, but really, Look at the 60's and 70's with the Police, the Who, Pink Floyd, Led Zepplin...you get the idea...There were a few really good bands in the 80's but not to the caliber of these bands.

Doesn't Bon Jovi have like 64 songs about living your life everyday like there's no tomorrow? It seems like almost every song I've heard by them is about that theme.

I totally agree Biscuit! I was thinking something along the same thing.  It's almost like some of those boy bands that the theme is always love. Or the rappers where its always about a HO.
