Over an illustrious career spanning more than four decades since their formation in 1983, Bon Jovi has earned their place among global rock royalty. The consummate rock and roll band,Bon Jovi has sold more than 135 million albums worldwide to date, produced an extensive catalog of hit albums and songs, racked up 96 No. 1 chart debuts around the globe, and has performed more than 2,900 concerts in over 50 countries for more than 37 million fans.
Beginning with their 1986 breakthrough album Slippery When Wet and back-to-back No. 1 songs "You Give Love A Bad Name" and "Livin' On A Prayer," Bon Jovi's unique blend of straight up rock ‘n' roll and universal, everyman lyrics that speak directly to fans' lives have made the band a mainstay on the charts worldwide. A phenomenon during the mid-to-late-80s, Bon Jovi bucked labels and defied the ever-fickle music industry to not only survive but thrive during the ‘90s, emerging again in 2000 with the massive hit single "It's My Life," which ushered in an era of unprecedented popularity and success in the band's career, including a Grammy Award for their 2005 No. 1 hit single, "Who Says You Can't Go Home."
Bon Jovi's sophomore release, 1985's 7800º Fahrenheit introduced the band's famous logo and finds the band in the midst of refining the hard rock/pop-metal dynamics and anthemic sing alongs that would turn them into superstars on subsequent effort Slippery When Wet. Standouts like "In and Out of Love" "Price Of Love" and "Only Lonely" display songwriting growth from that of their debut and helped earn the band their first gold record in the U.S. and eventual platinum certification.
