Bon Jovi—the most enduring of the aggressive arena rock bands that dominated the airwaves in the eighties—was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame over the weekend. For the better part of a decade, the man born Jon Bongiovi had been trying to get his semi-eponymous band enshrined, and the boomer rocker’s well-documented bitterness seeped into This House Is Not for Sale, the band’s joyless and monochrome 2016 record. Now that Bon Jovi’s settled his self-styled score, can we go back to pretending his band doesn’t exist until “Livin’ on a Prayer” comes on when we’re hammered at karaoke night? —Patrick Wall
