Wanted Dead or Alive
Wanted Dead or Alive - Bon Jovi (5:09)
1987
During a February 20, 2008 encore performance in Detroit Michigan Jon Bon Jovi told the crowd about running into Bob Seger at a Pistons game. As he introduced his song "Wanted Dead or Alive", he said it was inspired by Seger's "Turn the Page" hit and called the song the band's anthem.[1] The song peaked at #7 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart and #13 on the Mainstream Rock Tracks chart,[2] making it the third single from the album to reach the Top 10 of the Hot 100. As a result, Slippery When Wet became the first hard rock album to have 3 top 10 hits on the Billboard Hot 100. [It appears that the song was presented in the 1984 episode of Miami Vice (Season 3, Episode 8 (El Viejo), 1984, Roger Tovar, East Los Angeles California & Falls Church, Virginia).

In 2003 a new version was released on the album This Left Feels Right and this version was also released as a single with a promotional video. Now considered one of the band's signature songs, it has become known to younger audiences as the theme song for Discovery Channel's Deadliest Catch TV show.
