** And then there's one between supporters of Richie Sambora and Phil X; the latter replacing the former twice in tour. Those on Sambora's side mostly argue that his vocal harmonies and songwriting chemistry with Jon are irreplaceable, while those on Phil's side consider him to be bringing back the energy that the band has once lost (we'll see now that [[https://scontent.fmnl4-6.fna.fbcdn.net/v/t1.0-9/13266130_10153421491062000_8016997297419278397_n.jpg?oh=fe26ebdf28041d78e20b196d08b7d892&oe=57C22233 Phil X played guitars]] on ''This House is Not For Sale''). As of 2016, it is still guaranteed to see fans trading potshots over the two guitarists on every Facebook post by the band, over three years since Sambora left the band.

* OldShame: Although it is a fan favorite, they consider ''7800° Fahrenheit'' to be this, due to not turning out as they wanted. So much that songs from that album have been played only about 10 times (and 2 songs) after the New Jersey tour ended ''in January 1991.''

That sole ballad of ''7800&deg'' was only performed once ever since, and that was on January 1990. Even "Tokyo Road" became a rarity in itself by the middle of the following tour, and was subsequently performed only in Japan in 1993 and 1995, then once in Hawaii in 2010. "Only Lonely" was performed for only four times (in 2010) since it was last played on November 7, 1986. [[/note]] after the New Jersey tour ended ''in January 1991.''''
** Consider yourself extremely lucky if you get to a concert and manage to hear anything off ''Bounce'' past 2003. In fact, it is the only album that went unrepresented in the second GreatestHitsAlbum, even "In And Out Of Love" (from ''7800° Fahrenheit'') managed to sneak in on the international editions of said album.

* ContestedSequel: ''Burning Bridges'' is either their best album in 10 years or just as bad as ''What About Now.''


Added DiffLines:

** Even more egregious is the chorus of "Take Back The Night" being way too identical to a certain [[{{Music/SwedishHouseMafia}} Swedish House Mafia]] song.

**''Crush'''s LighterAndSofter tone is often considered to be the line dividing those from the fans who like the heavier sound of their older material and those who like the softer, new phase. Especially that the previous record, ''These Days,'' is generally considered to be their darkest album and also the "last good Bon Jovi record" to those who like their older material.

* ToughActToFollow : ''SlipperyWhenWet'' is the band's best-selling album, with a phenomenal 28 million copies sold world-wide. While ''New Jersey'' sold very well and the band has enjoyed long-lasting popularity, nothing else they've done has come close.
