Given that Bon Jovi dominated MTV in the 80s, you’d think one of their songs from “New Jersey” or “Slippery When Wet” would be their most popular music video. “You Give Love a Bad Name” and “Livin’ On A Prayer” were staples of the MTV playlist in the 1980s. But surprisingly, neither of those are the most watched videos the band has on their official YouTube channel.
Bon Jovi’s most-viewed music video on YouTube has racked up over a BILLION views. It wasn’t one of their popular 80s megahits. It wasn’t even a 90s song. Stumped? It’s a song that definitely had the 80s Bon Jovi sound though. Richie Sambora uses the famous “talk box” and it even references one of their 80s anthems.
From least to most views, here are the 20 music videos fans have watched the most on the official Bon Jovi YouTube channel, including that mysterious #1 from the 2000s.
