* PowerBallad: Quite a few of them - "I'll Be There For You," "Bed of Roses," "(You Want To) Make a Memory," "This Ain't A Love Song," "Always," "Wanted Dead Or Alive," etc. In fact, every album has at least one.
* RhymingWithItself: "Wanted Dead Or Alive" does this:
-->I walk these streets, a loaded six string on my back
-->I play for keeps, 'cause I might not make it back
* RockstarSong: "Wanted Dead Or Alive."

* OlderThanTheyLook: It's often joked that David Bryan has stopped aging in TheNineties. Having retained the same look for over 20 years helps.

** The fact that they both begin with ''shot through the heart'' doesn't help.

** The house at the end of the video for ''This House Is Not For Sale'' appears to be one for Jerry Uelsmann's [[https://jeremylopez1.files.wordpress.com/2012/02/jerry-uelsmann3.jpg photomontage of a tree with a house on top of it]], or probably on [[{{Creator/StephenKing}} Stephen King's]] ''[[{{Literature/SalemsLot}} Salem Lot]]'' that uses the same work from Uelsmann.

* MohsScaleOfRockAndMetalHardness: Being a band that underwent changes in style while retaining their core hard rack sound, the band's discography can vary wildly from as low as 1 to as high as 7. Sometimes these changes occur within albums.

** The first three albums are pretty consistent at Level 5, though the two PowerBallads ("Silent Night" and "Never Say Goodbye") fall a bit lower on the scale. ''New Jersey'' is a rather mixed bag, while most tracks fall at level 5, it has two power ballads ("Living in Sin" and "I'll Be There For You"), and two tracks that fall even lower ("Ride Cowboy Ride" and "Love For Sale" are definitely at 1).

** "If I Was Your Mother" is perhaps their heaviest song, scratching Level 7. The live "[[CarefulWithThatAxe jungle versions]]" of "Keep the Faith" can shoot up to a 6, as well as "Hey God" and "I Could Make A Living Out of Lovin' You."

** From TheNineties up to 2005, Bon Jovi falls mainly to 5 or 4, with a few exceptions (The first two aforementioned level 6 and 7 tracks are from ''Keep the Faith'' and ''These Days,'' respectively, and ballads like "Bed of Roses" and "Always" are much lower).
** ''Lost Highway,'' being a primarily country album, is on average at 3.
** The newer albums are mostly at 4, though ''What About Now'' and ''Burning Bridges'' have mixed bags ranging from 1-4.
