U2 vs. Bon Jovi (The Ultimate Battle)

A battle to end all battles:

Which band is better - U2 or Bon Jovi?

Both bands have had their share of hits. Both lead singers had long hair in the 80s. If we compare both bands' catalogues, which one is stonger? Which band will be remembered 20, 30, even 40 years from now? Is 'Slippery When Wet' superior to 'The Joshua Tree', or vice versa? Does 'With Or Without You' hold a candle to 'Livin' On A Prayer'? Is 'Wanted Dead Or Alive' Bon Jovi's 'Where The Streets Have No Name'?

Both have had great success two decades after first becoming internationally famous: U2 with 'Beautiful Day', and Bon Jovi with 'It's My Life', and both bands were re-introduced to a whole new generation of fans as a result. Both bands' recent resurgence in popularity is a testament to their resilience, innovation, and staying power.

So what are your thoughts on the matter? These two bands have so many similarities it's scary, and they're each legendary in their own way. It's your choice, and it's a tough one!

Good luck, friends.

I think the real decision is:

Did Jonno have better hair than Bono?

Clearly, Livin' On a Prayer is superior to With or Without You. The video alone--it was banned from MTV's rotation because it mixed scenes of Catholic mass with sex.

Clearly, Bon Jovi knew how to push buttons, and get their message across.

U2 has always been about flash and guitar riffs, there's not as much substance to them.

Hrmm, I thought that was the video for Living In Sin off their 1988 album New Jersey that was banned.

Obviously I love Bon Jovi more. That's why I'm on a U2 forum.

I actually do not have anything against Bon Jovi, but they're not nearly as good as U2. Still you do have to give them credit for longevity like U2.
