Bon Jovi is still considered relevant by the media, they broke that "80s" barrier with "It's My Life". People responded well to it, the media and record company promoted them based on the response, and they never looked back. The closest any of the other bands came was Journey, but their renewed success was based around a song released decades earlier.

Bon Jovi was considered old hat when they released "These Days" at the height of Grunge. It didn't sell well in the states compared to previous releases, and the tour for that album was minimal. I lived in Jersey at the time and they didn't even play their home state for that tour. It also helped that Jovi didn't lose his pin-up looks like most of the other stars of the scene.

You, me, or nobody is going to hit as hard as life. But it ain't about how hard you're hit, it's about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward, how much you can take and keep moving forward. THAT'S HOW WINNING IS DONE!!!
