Slippery When Wet

Bon Jovi's third and most commercially successful album Slippery When Wet was released in August of 1986 (see 1986 in music). It sold over twelve million copies in the U.S. and spawned two #1 singles, "You Give Love a Bad Name" and "Livin' On a Prayer". Slippery When Wet hit #1 on the Billboard Top 200.

Jon Bon Jovi initially didn't want to include "Livin' on a Prayer" on the album, as he didn't think it was a good song. Ironically, it became one of the band's most popular and well-known songs.
