Bon Jovi wordt opgericht in 1983 en bestaat uit zanger Jon Bon Jovi, gitarist Richie Sambora, toetsenist David Bryan en drummer Tico Torres. In 1986 heeft de rockband uit New Jersey hun eerste hit met You Give Love A Bad Name en een reeks van vele hits volgt.

In 2000 scoort de band hun eerste nummer 1-hit in de Top 40 met de single It's My Life. Daarna wordt het succes langzaam minder en wordt de top 10 alleen in 2002 nog gehaald met de single Everyday en in 2005 met Have A Nice Day.

In 2014 stapt Richie Sambora om onbekende redenen uit de band. In 2016 verschijnt het laatste album van de band This House Is Not For Sale maar hits worden er niet meer gescoord.


Songtekst

Shot through the heart and you're to blame
Darlin' you give love, a bad name

An angel's smile is what you sell
you promise me heaven, then put me through hell
Chains of love, got a hold on me
when passion's a prison, you can't break free

Whoa!
You're a loaded gun
yeah, whoa...
There's nowhere to run
No one can save me
The damage is done

Shot through the heart
and you're to blame
You give love a bad name
I play my part and you play your game
You give love a bad name
You give love a bad name

You paint your smile on your lips
blood red nails on your fingertips
A school boy's dream, you act so shy
Your very first kiss was your first kiss goodbye

Whoa!
You're a loaded gun
whoa...
There's nowhere to run
No one can save me
The damage is done

Shot through the heart
and you're to blame
You give love a bad name
I play my part and you play your game
You give love a bad name
You give love...

Shot through the heart
and you're to blame
You give love a bad name
I play my part and you play your game
You give love a bad name

Shot through the heart
and you're to blame
You give love a bad name
I play my part and you play your game
You give love a bad name
You give love a bad name
