The ceremony itself kicked off v the band’s induction and performance, i m sorry was likely the first time in decades Bon Jovi was an “opening act.”

Of course, that also meant the first presenter speech belonged come Howard Stern, who certainly didn’t mince words once it involved Jann Wenner, founder the Rolling stone and among the forces behind the absent Hall. (NSFW language ahead.)

“Another sign of the zombie apocalypse: Jann Wenner lastly let Bon Jovi into the Rock and also Roll room of Fame! What the f-ck is wrong v him?!…Jann girlfriend did it! You ultimately gave this an excellent band their due.”

Stern went on come slam Wenner part more, yet he at some point got come Bon Jovi, an especially their staggering figure of 130 million albums offered worldwide.


“Let me provide you one idea that what the number 130 million means, and also it means a lot. Now, the bubonic torment only killed 50 million people. The atom bomb only eliminated 225,000 people. Six-hundred-and-twenty-five-thousand people died in the polite War. Peanuts compared to 130 million Bon Jovi albums!”

Stern then went top top to surname the band’s numerous hits, and upon stating “Wanted Dead or Alive,” he sang 2 verses and two choruses. He finished his surprising karaoke rendition/audience sing-a-long through yelling,

“Eat sh-t, Bob Dylan! F-ck you! it is music!”

When it come time for their accept speeches, Bon Jovi was together grateful together Stern to be animated. Each band member do a suggest to thank their families and also their other bandmates. Jon Bon Jovi provided the longest speech the end of the whole band, i beg your pardon detailed numerous of the people and events the took place for Bon Jovi to even become a reality, but he made it a suggest to thank every one of the fans.


“To all of you who have been a part of this tremendous ride for the past 35 years and also to all of the fans who have supported this band, we share this honor v you, since this life is a gift. No one of it possible without all of you guiding us.

Of course, then come the moment every Bon Jovi fan was waiting for: The band’s Rock room set. It to be the an initial time Richie Sambora was on stage with Bon Jovi since his leave four years prior, and also as the band ripped with “You give Love A bad Name,” “It’s mine Life,” “When we Were Us” (off This residence Is not For Sale) and “Living top top a Prayer,” it was as if no time had actually passed.
