** Not helped by the group encouraging this idea - "Blaze of Glory" is on both of the band's "Greatest Hits" albums.

Added DiffLines:

* TheScrappy: Rhythm guitarist Bobby Bandiera and producer John Shanks tend to be on the receiving end of this. While a decent guitarist in his own right, Bandiera is notorious among fans due to how he plays the solo in "In These Arms." As for Shanks, his "wall of sound" production style and the overproduced atmosphere of every album under his watch (that is, every album since and including ''Have A Nice Day'') generate a fair amount of complaining as well. Interestingly enough, this does not extend to his guitar work on ''Burning Bridges'', but then, it's a post-Sambora album so people will generally whine about the former guitarist's absence rather than comment on Shanks' licks.


Added DiffLines:

** "This House Is Not For Sale" treads the SelfPlagiarism line with its riff apparently ripped off off "Have A Nice Day," down to the Telecaster sound and the chord progression, especially AFTER the solo.

* DudeNotFunny: Producer John Shanks reposted in his Twitter a [[http://oi68.tinypic.com/30csy2o.jpg photoshopped version]] of the cover art for the single ''This House Is Not For Sale'' with Sambora and his girlfriend Orianthi inserted at the back (the latter pointing at the band), seemingly unaware of the years-long FlameWar between the fans of the band's long-time guitarist and his replacement Phil X. Bonus (negative) points for trying to mentioning ''[[Magazine/RollingStone Rolling Stone]]'' and ''[[UsefulNotes/AmericanNewspapers The New York Times]]'' on that post. Shanks later took it down but gets promptly [[https://twitter.com/TheMattBongiovi/status/761748228597485568 called out]] by none other than Jon's brother.

** 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.

* BrokenBase: Usually caused by [[NewSoundAlbum New Sound Albums.]]]] This goes as far back, at least, as ''Keep the Faith'', where they started to veer more towards the mainstream and Adult Contemporary, although some argue ''New Jersey'' was already going this direction thanks to the runaway success of ''Slippery When Wet''.
