Jon Bon Jovi revealed the title of his band’s new album on Tuesday night (August 27th) on board the Runaway to Paradise Mediterranean Cruise. Speaking to fans in the Norwegian Pearl’s intimate Stardust Theater, Bon Jovi shared that the new record will be titled: Bon Jovi: 2020.

“It’s an election year, so why not?” said the New Jersey rocker. “I couldn’t do any worse…”

Bon Jovi added that the album will feature more “socially conscious” themes, including songs about veterans with post-traumatic stress disorder and the recent shootings in Ohio and Texas…

    Craig, if you don’t like Bon Jovi, and aren’t interested in this article, then why did you read it? And if Blue Murder puts you to sleep, don’t listen to them, very simple. As far as GVF goes, yes, Zeppelin borrowed some parts from some songs for some of their own, but the difference is they weren’t blatantly trying to sound like another band. You got to have at least some kind of originality! I just don’t see it or hear it at all with GVF.

    Craig, are you simply trolling for reaction?? Everyone who visits this site knows that, sure as hell, Eddie has helped promote GVF. Personally, I don’t like them cuz they’re a blatant Zeppelin rip off, and I find that boring, boring, boring. But regardless of how I feel about them, I know they are gaining traction, which is good for our genre of music, and Eddie has indeed helped with their exposure, even though you appear to have not noticed it. And, again personally, I think Blue Murder is awesome, the band sounds great and they’re all great players. And please, no more trolling on articles you didn’t enjoy. It puts me to sleep faster than GVF. Haha

      Craig, your comment posted in the Bon Jovi article really had nothing to do with Bon Jovi. Rather, it bashed Blue Murder and glorified GVF. So, you may have got some reaction you were fishing for, but it really wasn’t due to your Bon Jovi comments.

      Music is subjective as far as what we as fans enjoy. And the “music biz” might commercially suck right now, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t newer bands out there putting out music for fans to enjoy. You like GVF, good for you. And I’m not sure what you mean by “pretender”, but I’d prefer to listen to newer bands like Ghost, Evile, Hatchet, Holy Grail, or Spellcaster (well, now Silver Talon), and Municipal Waste. These bands may not sound like 70s bands, and that fine by me. I like music from all eras. And if we don’t agree on what we enjoy, that’s fine, too. Again, music is subjective.

      So you pretend all you want to be back in the 70s, if that brings you joy. I’ll stay in the now and enjoy the newer bands I like.

      Copperheads are bad ass venomous snakes, so that would actually be a pretty cool ID, too…and who knows, if you came around with those headphones, you just may get bit and have an ass full of snake fangs. ha ha

    “Socially conscious”? It’s about time. Songs about PTSD and domestic terrorism. I’m so proud how 80s artist continue to evolve and grow despite some fans who criticize them for not being twenty years old anymore and singing their classic songs all the time, or disparage them because the band doesn’t have ALL original members anymore. Def Leppard, Tesla, WASP still continue to put out great new music. I’m glad Bon Jovi still feels the need to use his talent to speak his truth.

    I will still listen to old Bon Jovi at times. Good stuff. But I have no interest in their newer material. AOR is not for me….. I am all for GVF and I am not bothered at all by the Zepplin “imitation”. We need more new bands to sound like Zepplin.
