Bon Jovi?s ?Livin? On a Prayer? Lives Again, 26 Years Later

Bon Jovi
What once was old is new again. Bon Jovi’s 1987 rock anthem, “Livin’ On a Prayer,” has re-entered the “Billboard Hot 100” more than a quarter century after the song first topped that same chart.


As reported by Billboard, the song’s return to the chart was triggered by a surge in the number of times it’s being streamed online. The streaming is mostly attributable to user-generated clips spurred by renewed interest in a video, originally posted in 2009, of Boston Celtics fan Jeremy Fry dancing to the song during stoppage of play at Boston’s TD Garden. Fry’s dance routine was freshly uploaded to Utrend.tv on October 17, and has since drawn 11 million worldwide views and garnered more than 1.6 million Facebook “shares.”

Bon Jovi last appeared on the Hot 100 chart in 2009, when “We Weren’t Born to Follow,” from the band’s album The Circle , reached Number 68.
