* DudeWheresMyRespect: This was mostly a fan reaction to Hugh [=McDonald=] (who replaced Alec as bassist) not being made an official member, not appearing in most videos, not appearing in publicity photos etc. between 1994 and 2016 despite having been in the band longer than Alec was. [=McDonald=] himself didn't seem to have an issue with it and the band themselves have said it wasn't a knock against Hugh but just that they agreed to never officially replace Alec when he left. Finally averted when both Hugh and new guitarist Phil X became official band members in 2016 prior to the release of the upcoming album ''This House Is Not For Sale'' where Hugh and Phil appear in the title song's video and in publicity shots for the album.

After non-stop touring, the band went on hiatus after the New Jersey Tour in 1990, during which time Jon Bon Jovi and Richie Sambora both released successful solo albums. In 1992, the band returned with the double platinum Keep the Faith and has since created a string of platinum albums throughout the 1990's, 2000's and 2010's.

2010s.

The band is closely associated with the 1980s HairMetal era, but were one of the few bands from that genre to retain their popularity after the {{Grunge}} explosion of the early 1990s. This had to do with their move towards softer pop ballad, which made them staples on adult contemporary radio. This ultimately resulted in them permanently changing their sound to a much less metal-oriented style.

* TechnicianVsPerformer: Rhythm guitarist John Shanks (technician; [[JustifiedTrope justified]] in that he's the RecordProducer after all) and lead guitarist Phil X (performer). While Shanks relies on gear that could rival [[{{Music/U2}} The Edge]] in terms of size, Phil X lives by the philosophy of using as few pedals as possible. This is best exemplified in [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_aOQJUY5BKY this video]] where Shanks introduces his rig for ''50 minutes'', as opposed to a combined 30 minutes from Phil and Hugh.

** The same reaction arose when Hugh was not inducted into the UsefulNotes/RockAndRollHallOfFame as a member of Bon Jovi for the same reason.
