bon jovi at his high point
******
Yeah, rock on!! Good
******
Super... Good job..!
****
One of there most over-rated songs. But it's what made them who they are.

Peaked at #3 in Australia, 1987.

Ok has a novelty factor but not amazing. 1st UK top 10. UK#4 and Ireland#4.
Last edited: 29/03/2012 19:16

Great track! Their first Top 10 in Australia and very recognisable, even with the younger generations today. Always up there in the 80's video polls. 4*

EDIT: I'll never be crazy about this song, but 4.5* is more on the mark.

Great song. Classic!
******
Fantastic! Some might say it's overrated but it's good enough to get a 6 for me.
*****
classic song,love it heaps
****
fun singalong ... slightly overrated
*
This may surprise some, but I do have valid reasons why I've always hated this.

^ well thank god someone said it

overrated and WHOAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA..............This is crap

Generic Crap
******
Whoa. What's with the really bad reviews? This is one of the best songs of the 80's. Maybe the young'uns shouldn't review music they don't really know or have a reasonable chance of appreciating. It would be like me reviewing songs from the 60's.

Or maybe people have heard something and have an opinion on it. That is allowed. Don't be so condescending ALL THE TIME. Just because you're older, doesn't give you the right to lecture people. Nor does it make you a superior person, in fact, your utter disregard for other people and their opinions makes you rather inferior in my eyes.

In any case, I also disagree with the negative reviews, but people are entitled to their opinion without being attacked for it. Mine is:

Awesome track! Fantastic rock, Bon Jovi at their best!
******
One of the greatest songs of the 80's!
******
Awesome, awesome song. I'd say it's underrated since it has a review average lower than the score I'm giving it, although that would imply that my opinion is the universally correct one and that anyone who disagrees is clearly wrong, and I don't think it's douchey at all to imply that that is obviously true. :P
******
One of the greatest rock songs/party songs/80's songs ever... and one of the greatest songs of all time. A chorus that you just wanna scream out at the top of your lungs.
******
6/6
******
Agree with Ant on this one. A very excellent track, and really, one of the most iconic of the 80's.
******
LOVE this. ❤
****
Der Überhit dieser Band, für mich lediglich gut. Netter Talkbox Effekt, aber irgendwas fehlt (vor allem wenn man es mit Let It Rock und Bad Name vergleicht)
******
i love this song, but yes this is so overrated too
****
Enjoyable
******
6 stars
***
I don't love this song, but it is alright. It's just annoying to be hearing it so much.

I don't really find it to be their best either.

****
I don't love it but I don't mind it being called a classic. One of their best though imo.
**
Over the top overrated and over played. ENOUGH!
