This song is responsible for the formation of so many hair metal bands that it probably has its own carbon footprint. Bon Jovi built this song by utilizing all the important recording tools of the 1980s, including a talk box, piercingly high vocals, and wholesale aerosol hairspray. Few people actually have the chops to sing this high-voltage chorus the way JBJ does it, although most drunk people think they’re more than qualified, there's plenty of potential to make your own version of the song. Even Bon Jovi toned the song down for a 9/11 acoustic set. Learn "Livin' on a Prayer" on Chromatik and get creative.
