Happy 50th birthday, Jon Bon Jovi!

He's done a lot for just five decades.

Numerous enormous hit songs, movies, political activism, and he created JBJ Soul Kitchen, a New Jersey restaurant where customers pay what they can, in money or volunteer work.

He's won a Golden Globe and an American Music Award and was nominated for an Oscar, Grammys, and MTV Video Music Awards.

He's been a heartthrob for decades now, traveling through the big feathered hair days to a more modern, sleeker look.

But when you get down to it, it's about the music.

We can't possibly fit all his songs into this post, but here are a bunch.

'Blaze of Glory' 

 'Livin' on a Prayer'

 'You Give Love a Bad Name'

 

 'Wanted Dead or Alive'

'It's My Life'

 

'Dry County'

 

'Bad Medicine'
