No, Megan they could not be.
In fact I only use a certain brand of batteries because their commercial informed me that they were the only brand of batteries that Bon Jovi trusted on tour.
You question JBJ once more and I'll have to kick you out of the band.

Okay, listen. I'm down with Jovi. But I've been burned by them, and I have my doubts. A brief story:
Graduation week. My friends and I decide to pony up to 20 bucks to see JBJ at Hardee's Walnut Creek Ampitheatre (yeah Raleigh). From the get go, this night seems destined for awesomeness (a topic you know a bit about, my friend). We park next to a car with a Jersey vanity plate that reads "JOVINUT". We are baptised into the church of rock by Jon Bon himself, and as requested, we do not hold him responsible for playing Bad Medicine.
But we had a singular goal that night Johnny. And that was to see Jon Bon see a million faces and rock them all. We patiently wait until the encore for this glorious moment, the moment which will cap off our four years of laborious schoolwork. And then. They play it. ACOUSTIC.
Wanted Dead or Alive should NEVER BE ACOUSTIC. I don't care how pretty Richie Sambora's harmonies are! You cannot rock a single face, let alone a million, acoustically!
Sigh. Do you understand now?

I think "social disease" was enough to show us that bon jovi most certainly can, and often are, wrong.
Not that i don't karaoke a mean "you give love a bad name." I'm just sayin', few things are beyond error.
