I would agree too - especially in terms of Bon Jovi.

Regarding Def Leppard, they probably were extremely influential in the sense that they are credited with being one of the NWOBHM bands, but with a slightly different (lighter? less "serious"?) sound than Maiden, Priest, Saxon, Motorhead, etc. And later in their career, when they hooked up with Mutt Lange, they were also monstrously influential. A zillion bands and even more fans sat up and took notice of the meticulous attention to detail and humongous layered sounds this combo created.

Still, Metallica were instrumental (no pun intended) in ushering in a new sub-genre in metal. They were the first thrash band to sell big numbers and it could be argued that they were very responsible for putting thrash on the map.
