EDITORS’ NOTES

When Bon Jovi teamed up with producer/hitmaker Desmond Child for Slippery When Wet, the results transformed the band into international superstars. Beyond the crossover smashes “You Give Love a Bad Name,” “Wanted Dead or Alive,” and “Livin’ on a Prayer”—which showed that they had their collective finger on the pulse of mid-’80s America—the album also rocks with arena-sized fist-pumpers (“Raise Your Hands”), a self-defining pop shout-out (“Wild in the Streets”), and a dramatic weeper (“I’d Die for You”).
