Bon Jovi #20 on VH1's top 100 Hard Rock Songs

Really? Hard rock? REALLY? They beat out Sabbath's "Heaven and Hell"!?!

Though, I suppose since Journey showed up on the list (#80, Any Way You Want It) -- and don't get me started on that -- I guess it's OK. But I can't get over some of the other songs The Jovi Machine beat out:

#41 Quiet Riot "Cum On Feel The Noize"
#31 AC/DC "Dirty Deeds Done Dirty Cheap"
#26 Skynard "Free Bird"
#23 Ozzy (They beat out OZZY!!) "Crazy Train"

Guess that just goes to show you -- show me a poll of which Bon Jovi is a part, and I'll show you thousands of fans who will vote for them, no matter what it's for.

Hard rock. Huh, maybe I don't really have a good appreciation of what hard rock is. For me, hard rock is one step below metal. A tiny baby step below. Songs like Boston's "More Than A Feeling" or Poison's "Talk Dirty To Me" are great rock songs, but IMO not hard rock. Pop rock maybe or glam rock, but hard rock?

You can't head-bang to BOC's "Don't Fear The Reaper", but that is one hell of a rock song. I think head banging is one of the definitive characteristics of hard rock. At least it was where I grew up.
