Riff: Bon Jovi – “Because We Can”

Feb 6, 2013

I don’t wanna be another wave in the ocean/I am a rock, not just another grain of sand (that’s right)

from Because We Can lyrics by Bon Jovi

You kinda have to admire Bon Jovi for refusing to adapt to any advances in modern music over the last 30 years. But claiming, with no shame, that “our love can move a mountain,” this tale of a man, quite appropriately, striving for dependability is as dumb and cliched as stadium rock gets.
