Flashback Photos: Jon Bon Jovi Edition

Maybe these photos are only fun/funny/horrifying if you lived through the 80's and 90's rock hair band scene. It was KIND of funny back then, and it gets even more funny looking back on it as the years go by. One of these days this look will probably be back in style again. The horror!  The hilarity!  I can't wait!

It is also going to be REALLY funny to look back on the outfits of the wussified emo folks and the thug hip hop/gangsta crowd.  I can't wait!

Side Note: Some of you already know my thoughts on Bon Jovi. I put him/them in the category of WORST BANDS OF ALL TIME.  If you think that is too harsh, just try listening to this song. Or this song. Hell, any Bon Jovi song could make your eyes roll and your ears bleed.

His eyes say that deep down he is a nice guy, the chest hair says he is an animal in bed! Love them all:)

Horrifying and Hilarious all at the same time! Nice finds!

...love Maegan said...

omg the one in the cut-offs ...where he's on the boat. COULD THEY BE ANY SHORTER?!?!?!? ahahahah

He's so livin' on a prayer.

Katie said...

i had to scroll...fast. he looks like the lost Olsen twin in some of them or father? :o

lace up crotch is a no no!

WendyB said...

Ooh, we all thought he was the hottest!

besswess said...

I live in Mellancamp country and Bon Jovi has always been my favorite.

Kris said...

Horrifying... but sexy as all hell! LOL!

bananas. said...

how jon bon jovi was able to reproduce after suffocating his balls with tight clothing for so long...is beyond me.

i mean look at those daisy duke shorts. i can almost see a pube or two. gah!!!

Haute World said...

Oh, I'm with you on being a Bon Jovi hater. Do you know I recently ran across them in Paris?? They were here playing a show and I bumped into them while they were leaving their hotel. I swear, the only reason I even recognized them was me thinking "who the hell still has poodle hair like that? what are those guys thinking?" and then realizing it was Bon Jovi. Yep. Bad times.

And I know a ton of girls adore Jon, because they think he's so hot and so sweet, but he's short and cheats on his wife (I know both for a fact). So there.

Hope you had a great weekend ;-)

Kayla said...

The cut off and lace up jeans are my favorite. Oh fashion... sometimes it's just cruel.

anita @ a dreamer's den said...

ok -- i'll give you jon; but don't ever hate on guns n' roses.
i have special memories. ;)

diane said...

Thanks for inserting the photos of the guy with the Superman tattoo. :)

Kara said...

*gasp* I never knew he was so HAIRY!

tulpen said...

Lots of icky pics here. But the mostly naked with the short hair and blanket? YUM.

Caroline said...

High hair...no hair...he's still hot as fuck!!!!!!!

Shorty said...

I'm so disgusted by all that chest hair. And hair in general. How was this sexy back then? And to top it off, he just plain looks girlie in most of those pics!

Trixie said...

I think they're pretty much eternally mortifying. Except for that first shot with the short hair and no clothes. nice

Char said...

yeah...i think he's way hotter now than i ever did back then. but then again i was never a big 80's glam band fan...well, does van halen fit into that category? hell - i just like what i like. i'm more of a roots rock, 70's rock, folky kind of girl.

vint junky said...

My eyes are actually bleeding from the cut off shot

jennifer from pittsburgh said...

I loved his hair then and I love it now. Somethings, unlike a grilled chicken sandwich with mayo left out in the sun, are always good :)

Kaz said...

Didn't like him then
Don't like him now
Shudder

Heff said...

After that visual ASSAULT, I figured you a Bon Jovi fan.

I think they suck ass, myself !

Jillian said...

Awesomely awesome!

L.A. Daze said...

Hahahaha, this provided for a good afternoon chuckle.

Alisa said...

The jean cut-offs, lace up crotch, highlighted mop hair, so bad!! As bad as it is, I was glad that I got to be a part of it. I can look back with horror and nostalgia!

I never was a Bon Jovi fan, but I lived with 2 gals that were. Not fun!

Tia said...

While I agree that these outfits are beyond ridiculous, I LOVE Bon Jovi!! So much so that my husband proposed after surprising me by taking me to a Bon Jovi concert. On Valentines day. Apparently I like all that is cheesy.....

Caitlin said...

My mom really has a thing for him. Why.

morgan said...

Even if he is the worst rocker of all time, he's hot. Even with his frizzy chick hair. There, I said it.

Ellie Grace said...

Maybe I just don't get it, but I really don't find him all that attractive! Apparently there is something wrong with me. Maybe it was just one too many JUNK shots that threw me off... hah

Anonymous said...

Rachael said...

Yeah the guy is kinda sexy in a ssssh don't tell anyone I admitted that kind of way :). But the music kinda sucks!

Kitty Stampede said...

EW EWWWZERS! I never got his appeal..hahahaha...these photos are FREAKING Hilarious! I adore looking at god awful shudder 80's images.

Missy said...

I don't remember him being so hairy! Ewwwww!

God's Favorite Shoes! said...

This is hilarious! I never realized he liked such a porn star!!

I do have a confession...in fourth grade, me and my friend Debra Hartwick wrote down the words to the song and sand it together during gym. I was the only black kid jamming the whole out of Bon JOVI.

I heart LIVIN on a Prayer! LOL

adrienzgirl said...

Christina In Wonderland said...

I only like one Bon Jovi song... but damn has the man aged well.

Mrsblogalot said...

I can't believe what a yummy boy he is...was.. is..uh..omg, is that drool on my keyboard?

Susan Erickson said...

I have never listened to his music but he's a hot, rock and roller....looks kinda nice too....doubt if anybody would kick him out of bed....

Georgina Dollface said...

I was never really into him during his perm rock days, but now that he's grown up a bit and stopped back-combing, I think he's pretty hot. - G

Chic 'n Cheap Living said...

I don't understand, doesn't everyone wear a crown of roses? ;)

Pretty Little World said...

I don't care for the music, but him I would totally take. Did you see him when he was on Ally McBeal? Love.

Farah said...

rach said...

Jennifer DeDonato said...

That hair is better than mine...no fair!

blueviolet said...

Leave the past in the past,drollgirl, please!!!!

Bromeliad said...

It was all about the hair back then.

I don't miss it.

only a movie said...

Those cutoff shorts were so wrong. I don't care for his music, but I'm with my sis on not minding the mostly-naked shots.

Marsi @ The Cottage Cheese said...

I agree, Bon Jovi is horrible. Horrible! But these days, I do find Jon pretty damn sexy. As long as he doesn't sing. I mean, he's hot and smart and funny (did you catch him hosting SNL? Or on 30 Rock?) But I repeat - as long as he doesn't sing.

carly said...

he looks like a total douche in every. single. photo.

Bitsy said...

I frickin love this guy. I think hes hotttt. I dont care what ANYONE says!! xx

TK Kerouac said...

the band aged well, not many do

chloe said...

i actually think he looks kinda hot in those denim hotpants & sleeveless tees (1st, 17th & 18th pics). in an im-embarassed-to-fancy-him-but-yum kind of way.
i like their old stuff (i guess around the time of the photos), like "bad medicine", "runaway", "livin on a prayer", "born to be my baby", "i'll be there for you", "you give love a bad name" etc. they were awesome songs, classics!!
but now? i can't friggin STAND him or his music: "have a nice day?", "someday i'll be saturday night" what the HELL?????

thanks for this post, im gonna go download some 80s jovi! xxx
